Unsuitable for any age!

Leave her alone.

That shameless brat!

My first marble! He'll like it

so much, he'll sign it.

Like Michelangelo with his pupils?

I wouldn't have Hugo

sign my poems.

You're an anarchist, Paul.

A young savage.

I can't bear school.

Thank you for giving me

Rimbaud's poems.

Will I ever be able

to run away like he did?

I love your writing...

...and I adore you.

You alone believe in me.

My little Paul.

You look at me so sweetly.

Is that a sin?

Sin doesn't exist.



...give this young lady

some marble.

One of the chunks from "Eve."

Excuse me--I'm being visited

by the Ministry of Culture.

Send Louis with her.

Do you have tools for marble?

Good luck, then.

The "Gates of Hell" will be

one of the century's most beautiful...

But you're far from finished...

Are the Cathedrals finished?

What have you worked with?

Green granite...

From Soissons?



Mr. Rodin is spoiling you.

Pure Pitacci.

Smell it!

This one

will probably do nicely.

That one?

No. This one.

Paros, from Greece.

Be careful, it's fragile.

A hand, or a handout?

Neither one.

Why accept an official order

for work you don't plan to do?

We'll never stay on schedule

this way.

My ideas don't

come from orders.

What did she choose?

The pyramid.

The little one?

Yes, the Paros marble.

She doesn't know

how hard it is to work with.

One wrong tap

and it breaks in half.

She's too young.

She should take lessons.

I saw her work, Limet...

Two old woman

and a tramp. Merely sketches.

You know, when the clay is more alive

than the real flesh...

That's rare.

You're wrong about her.

She doesn't need lessons.

Boucher is wrong, too.

She'll learn by doing.

"With that horrible warning..."
