Even though Mrs. Hyde loses the trees for the forest, any movie starring Huppert is radiant, and it should be evident that tossing in a special effect or a message will be superfluous.

The setup is laborious, but the payoff made me roar.
April 26, 2018
A strange, ingenious film.

Perhaps its greatest lesson isn't within the movie, but rather the fact of it: rather than revise a stale genre, burn it anew.
April 23, 2018
As in Stevenson's story, the unleashing of Marie's latent furies inevitably veers toward horror, infusing Bozon's sociological satire with bitter ironies about the forces of order and the uses of disorder.
February 21, 2018
In addition to often being quite funny, Serge Bozon's fifth feature and second consecutive Isabelle Huppert vehicle is an exemplary film about pedagogy...
October 16, 2017
In the dual roles inspired by Robert Louis Stevenson's classic monster tale, Huppert is superb.

As a movie about teaching, though, Madam Hyde works wonderfully. In contrast, the supernatural aspects of the film often feel tacked on and out of place.
September 29, 2017
It's refreshing to watch Isabelle Huppert's madcap dash of a performance, playing a character constantly at war with herself and who she wants to be in life.

Smart people have it rough, [Mrs. Hyde] suggests, but that doesn't mean they won't stop fighting to survive.

August 9, 2017
Eccentric and occasionally hilarious, this is yet another uniquely Bozonian creation ...
May 1, 2018
There are problems with Mrs. Hyde that have nothing whatsoever to do with Bozon's puzzling creative choices, though for perspective's sake, the problems are dwarfed by the choices.

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.
April 26, 2018
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.
April 24, 2018
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.
November 14, 2017
I wanted to see the classic tale of hidden identity I was promised, not a retread of Stand and Deliver.
September 26, 2017
The film's segregated world hints at a town's (and country's) racial tensions without actually examining them.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
September 25, 2017
The effects hawk back to Wes Craven's "Shocker" while the classroom scenes attempt to capture something from "Dangerous Minds" but lands somewhere between "Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit" and "Kindergarten Cop."
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
September 22, 2017
Madame Hyde has a simple premise that is complicated by pretentious storytelling and sold as high art.
