13. Isabelle Adjani as Camille Claudel

Character: Camille Claudel

Film: Camille Claudel

Year Released: 1988

In this blustery French movie of high passions, Isabel Adjani is Camille Claudel, sculptor and love interest of Auguste Rodin. The lovely Adjani, imbues so much underlying sadness into her relationship with the talented sculptor, that the turn from passion to obsession becomes all the more harrowing(she destroys a sculpture almost solely with her tears). The strong-nosed Gerard Depardieu plays Rodin, but all eyes are on Adjani in one of her finest roles.
