An enjoyable and subversive parody on both B-film horror stories from the 1950s and mental health caregivers by legendary French director Jean Renoir.

Picnic on the Grass suggests the harmony between mind and libido, but here Renoir savors the possibilities of the human split

It's the kind of role that can inspire brilliance, and Barrault is remarkable, suggesting a deranged mime who moves in a series of spasms and ticks before breaking into wild, inexplicable violence.

By stressing the universal elements of Stevenson's story, Renoir eradicates the creakiness of the plot, spinning the tale into something that still feels relevant.
