In this documentary, director Bruno Aveillan focuses on the creative process behind The Gates of Hell, by Auguste Rodin. Defined as one of the most important artistic masterpieces of history, this mythical sculpture encompasses all of its creator’s secrets, as well as the intimate building blocks of his genius. In it, we see the immeasurable Rodin, forever oscillating between heaven and hell, as he would spend almost 30 years, until his last breath, without ever seeing this masterpiece consecrated – a piece reuniting all of his inspirations, his techniques, the human condition, his life as a man, and the women that he loved. Perfectly chiseled, this film is a true restoration of Rodin’s work, as it lends an innovative look at the artist from an artist’s point of view.
