It’s painful to hear a director explain what he thinks he did or was attempting to do in a scene or an entire film and know that his vision just wasn’t realized; the point just didn’t come across in the way he thought it would or did.
Such is the case in Writer/Director Serge Bozon’s Madame Hyde.
As usual, Huppert is excellent at playing her part, but, unfortunately, Bozon does not give her the scenes he thinks he has to show us the transformations of character and story. And, though it is often easy to guess what happens, it would have been nice to actually see it. It is the missing shots that make this film a minor event.
I give Madam Hyde a 2.6 out of 5.
