A complicated woman by Anne-Katrin Titze

Isabelle Huppert on the costumes chosen by Delphine Caposella for Madame Hyde: "I love them!" Photo: Anne-Katrin Titze

Robert Louis Stevenson's Dr Jekyll turning into Mr Hyde has been portrayed by John Barrymore, Fredric March and Spencer Tracy - but never in a transformation quite like this.

Mrs Hyde (Madame Hyde), screenplay by Serge Bozon and Axelle Ropert, cinematography by the director's sister Céline Bozon, stars Isabelle Huppert as Mrs Géquil, the science teacher (or music or English) you don't remember. Fragile, timid, frightened, she has a preference for pale yellow cardigans and pink skirts and sensible shoes, and speaks with a high, shaky voice when she enters the classroom.

José Garcia is her stay-at-home husband who cooks for her and is less perceptive than he seems. Romain Duris, the principal of the school where she teaches, wears pants and ties (in rust, avocado, pale purple or the »

Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde (1920) with Live Music by The Invincible Czars October 20th at Webster University

11 October 2017 4:58 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

“A man cannot destroy the savage in him by denying its impulses. They only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it.”

Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde (1920) will screen at Webster University’s Moore Auditorium Friday October 20th  at 7:30pm. Austin, Texas’ most adventurous band, The Invincible Czars, will provide live music.The band encourages fans and attendees to dress for the Halloween season at these shows.

Alongside Sherlock Holmes and James Bond, Robert Louis Stevenson’s novella The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is a work that has spawned many screen adaptations, yet predates both, the first of which dating as far back as 1908. Widely considered one of, if not the best of the bunch, director John S. Robertson’s seminal 1920 proto-horror classic Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde is mostly remembered for one thing above all others. Played by an endlessly captivating John Barrymore, »

New York 2017 Review: Isabelle Huppert Schools Us in Mrs. Hyde

28 September 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

I didn't expect a biting, timely social commentary from Bozon and from Mrs.Hyde. Unlike Robert Louis Stevenson's Jekyll and Hyde, Bozon's two faced, mild mannered school teacher parable has a lot more to do with the society we live in - which lacks self-determination, individual thoughts, and honestly, is more and more very much anti-intellectual.

Home Entertainment Review: ‘Black Sails’ Season 4

29 August 2017 12:45 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

On August 28th, season four of the acclaimed Black Sails will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray, alongside the complete collection, containing all four seasons, also available in both formats. Since the initial debut of season one back in 2014, Black Sails has attracted a cult following, and has often been described as Game of Thrones with pirates.

Set in the mid-1700s, the TV series presents an original back story to the well-known Treasure Island book written by Robert Lewis Stevenson. Whilst Black Sails shares several characters with the book, its own story has many differences and is more of a homage to Stevenson’s work rather than a direct prequel. Like the book, Black Sails does feature several pirates known to have lived in real life, such as Charles Vane (Jack McGowan), Black Beard (Ray Stevenson), Jack Rackham (Toby Schmitz) and Anne Bonny (Clara Paget), which adds an »

Home Is Where the Films Are: How Current Cinema Represents Modern Domestic Life

24 August 2017 8:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

To the credit of the Locarno Festival, the films in the 2017 selection don’t waste time trying to tell universal stories that transcend their time and place. Falling in love varies depending on the social conditions behind it, as Xu Bing’s found-footage film “Dragonfly Eyes” aptly proves, while weaving a story about obsession and surveillance in contemporary China. Similarly, working in a mine in Serbia has a wholly different routine than mining for gold in Suriname, as Ben Russell’s latest documentary “Good Luck” takes its time to show. Even something as widespread as the notion of the work/life balance varies considerably in films from Locarno coming from different parts of the world and set in different milieus, and enough of these films either circumvent or contradict traditional depictions of the home.

It’s telling that new films in which the home is a sooth place are either »

French Women Take a Stand: How Two New French Films Address Issues of Representation

22 August 2017 9:57 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The following essay was produced as part of the 2017 Locarno Critics Academy, a workshop for aspiring film critics that took place during the 70th edition of the Locarno Film Festival.

No matter how progressive the film community becomes, women continue to struggle to see their stories told. The problem is twofold — the representation of women in contemporary cinema and the enabling of women directors — and the scope of it is global. The 70th edition of the Locarno Film Festival featured no films directed solely by women in the main competition. This is a problem that has faced many contemporary festivals around the world, but Locarno at least managed to showcase two completely different films with assertive female leads: Serge Bozon’s “Mrs. Hyde” and Valerie Massadian’s “Milla.”

“Milla” was one of the more prominent films directed by a woman in this year’s Locarno Film Festival, where it competed »

Favorite Moments from Locarno Festival 2017: Harry Dean Stanton, Isabelle Huppert, Technicolor Shadows

10 August 2017 11:05 PM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Madame HydeThis year at the Locarno Festival I am looking for specific images, moments, techniques, qualities or scenes from films across the 70th edition's selection that grabbed me and have lingered past and beyond the next movie seen, whose characters, story and images have already begun to overwrite those that came just before.***Old man kicks can. Lucky is Harry Dean Stanton, its screenplay of a solitary, elderly man fiddle-fit but increasingly aware of his impending death—and ‘the void,’ as he calls it— is simply a vehicle to get one of the most charismatic and characterful actors front and center before a camera and film him doing all sorts of stuff. John Carroll Lynch's film in the international competition is full of small delights performed by the actor, ranging from kinesthetic morning yoga to a friendship-in-old-age with a local played by David Lynch, a relationship which elaborates on »

Isabelle Huppert Is a Monster After Dark In Serge Bozon’s ‘Mrs. Hyde’ — Review

10 August 2017 7:19 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Isabelle Huppert excels at playing tough, individualistic women, but she can just as easily dial it down for more fragile performances, so it was only a matter of time before she landed a role that let her have it both ways. In Serge Bozon’s peculiar comedy “Mrs. Hyde,” she’s a beleaguered French schoolteacher who gets struck by lightning and taps into the much more powerful, vindictive side of her personality lurking beneath the surface.

It’s a fascinating role in an uneven but frequently insightful movie riddled with amusing asides and enigmatic developments, partly because Huppert doesn’t undergo a radical transformation. Instead, she subtly finds herself at war with her inner confidence, and it’s often hard to tell which side has the upper hand.

The Nature of Evil: Close-Up on Jean Renoir’s "The Testament of Dr. Cordelier"

9 August 2017 10:30 PM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Close-Up is a feature that spotlights films now playing on Mubi. Jean Renoir's The Testament of Dr. Cordelier (1959) is playing August 3 - September 2, 2017 in the United States as part of the series Jean Renoir.Jean Renoir frequently focused on complicated characters who toe the line between right and wrong. They are often trapped by social mores, for better or for worse. In works like The Crime of Monsieur Lange (1936) or The River (1951), characters are unfairly confined, while in films like La chienne (1931) or La bête humaine (1938), a breaking from custom is fatally dangerous. Even in more light-hearted fare, such as French Cancan (1954), a bold flaunting of convention is cause for conflict and scandal. It seems only logical, then, that Renoir in his interest in the imposed customs of community and the social construction of morals would be drawn to Robert Louis Stevenson’s Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde »

Locarno Review: ‘Mrs. Hyde’ Finds Isabelle Huppert Dealing Out Comeuppance in Pseudo-Supernatural Tale

7 August 2017 5:53 AM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Mrs. Géquil is a delicate woman, at least in the eyes of her patronizing husband (played by José Garcia) as well as, perhaps, in the eyes of her boss and the vast majority of the students in her class. However, if the Robert Louis Stevenson reference in the title hasn’t led you to this conclusion already, then perhaps the casting of Isabelle Huppert in the lead role just might: she will not be referred to as delicate for very long. Mrs. Hyde, a socially bellicose, darkly humorous farce with aesthetic and spiritual echoes of both giallo horror and recent Kaurismäki, is the latest work of film critic-turned-actor-turned-director Serge Bozon. He’s a filmmaker who has, in the past, used similarly absurdist tropes — although never through such a playfully pseudo-supernatural façade — to talk about issues of class and gender politics in contemporary France, evidenced in Tip Top (also with Huppert) and La France. »

Locarno Film Review: ‘Mrs. Hyde’

6 August 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

An offbeat, fizzy farce that goes a little flat by the end, Serge Bozon’s hot-ticket Locarno premiere “Mrs. Hyde” drinks no potion, but nonetheless demonstrates a split personality. Half enjoyable, half frustrating, the film’s (extremely) loose basis on Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic novella “Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde” would seem to provide the perfect excuse to have the world-beating Isabelle Huppert swing from one end of her Grand-Canyon-sized range to the other. But Bozon’s oddly arrhythmic script then denies us that pleasure by imagining mousy milquetoast schoolteacher Mme Géquil’s powerful alter ego as either a doomsaying sleepwalker, or a glowy, ghostly, largely featureless special effect. And where Stevenson’s tortured hero got to indulge the unspeakable depravities his suppressed darker nature longed for, Bozon’s female version doesn’t get to have as much fun in her transformed state. As if watching a Bruce Banner who never fully »
