Mrs. Hyde (Madame Hyde) Reviews

September 21, 2018
Madame Hyde is a film that has many virtues, not the least of which is its willingness to go against the current. [Full review in Spanish]

Bozon has always been fond of the vivacity of classic cinema - he development of a film of sparkling calligraphy, where treasonous camera movements top off some scenes with the kinetic energy of a slapstick's own slip. [Full Review in Spanish]

Bozon's film does what other films believe and do not really do: It gives an account the passing of time, of the prevailing tedium, of the frustrations and desires of a mature woman. [Full Review in Spanish]

[The film's writerst] are not afraid to mix genres...That singularity makes Madame Hyde refreshing despite rekindling such vague concepts as Stevenson's novel about duality or the French subgenre of suburban educational dramas. [Full review in Spanish]

Bozon delivers another example of his highly distinctive universe, and allows Huppert free reign, who seems to revel in playing a character who veers from neutralized to, well, radioactive.

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.

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.

In addition to often being quite funny, Serge Bozon's fifth feature and second consecutive Isabelle Huppert vehicle is an exemplary film about pedagogy...

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.

Eccentric and occasionally hilarious, this is yet another uniquely Bozonian creation ...
