I, Claude Monet, a fresh new documentary based entirely on Claude Monet’s personal letters,
will reveal Monet the artist, businessman and lover as never before.
Disposing of traditional narration and talking heads, I,
Claude Monet allows Monet to tell his story in his own
words. Based on three thousand surviving letters,
the film reveals a tumultuous inner life marked by
moments of intense depression and euphoric creation,
offering a complex portrait of one of the world’s best
loved artists. I, Claude Monet also features over a
hundred of Monet’s paintings filmed in highdefinition,
providing a unique window into his
emotional and creative life.
Brought to life by acclaimed actor Henry Goodman,
Monet’s letters record his journey from prodigiously
talented teenager to the grand old man of arts. They
record remarkable encounters – from the painter
Eugène Boudin, who he met as an enthusiastic
amateur, to Prime Minister Georges Clemenceau, with
whom he struck up a friendship as an elderly man.
