Mrs. Hyde (Madame Hyde)

Critics Consensus

Madame Hyde has a handful of interesting ideas and a typically radiant performance from Isabelle Huppert, although it's all still a little less than the sum of its parts.

Critic Reviews for Mrs. Hyde (Madame Hyde)

All Critics (29) | Top Critics (11) | Fresh (16) | Rotten (13)

  • The credits for this French horror comedy cite Robert Louis Stevenson as inspiration, but the more direct antecedent is Jerry Lewis's The Nutty Professor.

  • The setup is laborious, but the payoff made me roar.

  • Maybe it's only fitting that a Jekyll-and-Hyde tale would be of two minds. Unfortunately, neither of them is completely satisfying.

  • Mrs. Hyde has its keen moments, but it lacks a thesis. If it were a term paper, any conscientious teacher would send it back for a rewrite.

  • Whenever the movie tries to say something insightful about racial integration - or education, or any number of issues - it backs off or bogs down. It's so tonally and ideologically unfocused that its ideas just slip away.

  • Bozon...seems perversely committed to frustrating not just conventional audience expectations but also any hope whatsoever that one might have for narrative and/or thematic coherence.
