Camille Claude impresses already-famous sculptor Auguste Rodin. He hires her as an assistant, but soon Camille begins to sculpt for herself and she also becomes his mistress. But after a while, she would like to get out of his shadow.
Alain Cuny, who plays the father of Camille and Paul Claudel, actually met Paul Claudel. In 1944, the poet and dramatist personally chose Cuny to play Pierre de Craon in his play: The Tidings Brought to Mary.
