In Paris, 1880, forty-year-old Auguste Rodin at last receives his first state commission: The Gates of Hell, a sculptural group work composed of many figures, some of which would become the basis of sculptures that would later bring him fame, such as The Kiss and The Thinker.
Following the life of the famous sculptor this film explores how Rodin relentlessly pursues his work, coping with the rejection and the enthusiasm provoked by the sensuality of his sculptures, and how he creates the uncontested departure point of modern sculpture.
Director: Jacques Doillon
