Miss Claudel, please.

Come on, we'll run a bath.

You are too dirty.

Come and have your bath.

It will do you good.

No fuss today, Miss Claudel.


You are always dirty. You need to wash.


Every time it's the same.


See this completely dirty hand,

Miss Claudel.

And it soothes you.

Miss, what are you doing here?

You are not with the others?

Return with the others. Miss Claudel!

Doctor, please.

Miss Claudel has the authorization to

prepare meals.

Because of the fear of being poisoned.

Oh dear. It's wet.

My ears...

I can lunch in the courtyard?


Miss Claudel...

could you care for Miss Lucas?


Thank you

What are you doing?

You're watching me cry?

What's going on?

Thank you, Miss Claudel.

OK, Miss Claudel?

Come on, I'll walk you to your room.

Miss Claudel...

Miss, what happened in the kitchen

this morning?

Was told

you threatened to slap the intern.

He doesn't know the risk he runs

He tried to take me.

I've the right to make my meals,

like you said.


You have the authorization,

but it is exceptional.

This is for your good

I know.

Anyway, some good news for you


Your brother, Paul Claudel...

will come to visit you.

Thank you

Thank you

My God... My God...

I want nothing else than to be in

a house nearby.

My little Paul

Make it end...

find my dear labor



God's Glory and all His saints.

He prayed for His saints...

Five apostles arrived in Bethlehem...

to save Jesus.

There was Rome, the Romans,

the time of the Romans...



Madame Danielle,

you will get into trouble.

You shouldn't stay here.

What are you doing there?

You have nothing to do in the school.


That's it. You're all there?

The meal is ready; you can enter.

Place?? yourselves there, please

Come on, now.

Fine. Bravo.


Come with me, please.

Come, Miss.

About the meals for next week -

three residents less.

Very well, my sister.

Miss, do not be afraid.

Nobody here wants to poison you.


What's your name?



You'll post a letter for me in the

village, in secret?

You have an address where I can

send the letter from?

My mother's:
the Widow Blanc...

Tour Philippe-le-Bel,


Thank you

My dear Henrietta

This is very far away as I write.

No longer my cute

little studio in Paris.

Since I was abducted from my place...

I often tried to communicate with you.

But I'm watched night and day,

like a criminal.

Do not know if this letter will

reach you.

I was interned at Ville Evrard...

then, under the pretext of war,

at Montdevergues, near Avignon

I've suffered to be torn

from my studio...

to be locked in these horrible houses.

My cousin Charles tried to get me out...

but since then I haven't any

more news.

Dear Henrietta

if you could give me news of you...

and your children,
