Mrs Hyde
(Madame Hyde)

Serge Bozon

In this eccentric revision of Robert Louis Stevenson’s literary classic Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, directed by Serge Bozon, Isabelle Huppert stars as the eponymous Mrs Hyde.

Mme Géquil (Huppert) is a prim, meek and unconventional physics teacher at a working class suburban Parisian high school, often derided by her fellow colleagues for her inability to engage students and control the unruly ones. On an appropriately stormy night, she is struck by lightning in her private laboratory and turns into something decidedly different. Romain Duris plays the school’s principal as Bozon explores the relationship between the privileged and under-privileged in contemporary French society.
