"The artist simply gives shape to his own dreams." - reads from Rodin's personal journal. Three times he applied for admission to The Academy of Fine Arts and he was three times refused. But as a forefather of great modern sculpture he found his own way to represent and dramatize the human body.

This feature-length documentary provides a unique insight into the sculptor genius' personality and working methods - told through Rodin's own notebooks and letters.

This inspiring film profile explores Rodin’s inner and creative world. His fascination with form and transformation, dance and women... Journal quotes make the film’s tone intimate, leaving the viewer unbiased by interpretation. Provides a depthful overview of his working life, discussing methodology and material use as well as his professional evolvement from traditionally schooled craft-man into the experimental sculptor of his time.

● Archival film footages feature Rodin at work,
at his studio and at Meudon (with a woman believed to be his mistress).
● Richly illustrated
with photographs of the artist and imagery of his sculptures,
drawings and sketches. Features beautifully shot footages inside The Rodin Museums
both in Meudon and Paris.
● Also shows the rarely seen masterpieces of experiments and preparation
- Rodin's terracotta molds and drafts held at Meudon.
