MADAME HYDE / Mrs. Hyde

MADAME HYDE / Mrs. Hyde

An offbeat, fizzy farce, Serge Bozon's Mrs. Hyde is (extremely) loosely based on Robert Louis Stevenson's classic novella "Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde" which would seem to provide the perfect excuse to have the world-beating Isabelle Huppert swing from one end of her Grand-Canyon-sized range to the other. But Bozon's oddly arrhythmic script then denies us that pleasure by imagining mousy milquetoast schoolteacher Mme Géquil's powerful alter ego as either a doomsaying sleepwalker, or a glowy, ghostly special effect. (...) Still, she is never less than a pleasure to watch. (Jessica Kiang, Variety)
