Through this work story, we also follow the sculptor's life and see the many other masterworks that were born throughout his search of the perfect form for 'The Gates of Hell'. Through the thrilling story of this door's creation, visual artist, photographer and filmmaker Bruno Aveillan draws a fascinating portrait of the sculptor's unrivaled esthetic quality - a sculptor who was probably the first modernist and certainly the one who gave sculpture its credibility. Rodin: A Modernist: Rodin's destiny is both singular and closely context related. Fed by a public and private correspondence, this film will draw the strands of his life and reminds the background when required. However, it will be anything but a commemoration: Rodin is still alive because eternal. In Paris, his sculptures are an integral part of the urban decor: The Penseur and Balzac at Varenne subway station, the D'Alembert at the town Hall… Through constant back and forth between past and present, this film is about Rodin's spirit, forever among us.     ...Auguste Rodin (Divino inferno: Et Rodin créa la Porte de l'Enfer / La Turbulence Rodin) (Divine Hell: And Rodin created the Porte de l'Enfer / Rodin: A Modernist)
