Mrs. Hyde (Madame Hyde) Reviews

June 21, 2018
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.

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.

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.

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 the dual roles inspired by Robert Louis Stevenson's classic monster tale, Huppert is superb.

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 ...

As if watching a Bruce Banner who never fully Hulks out, we sadly just don't get to witness Huppert ripping into the role of the selfish, voracious id-monster that the title promises.
