Le testament du Docteur Cordelier

Saw #TestamentduDocteurCordelier, or J. Renoir’s take on Jekyll & Hyde. Brisk & confident, even a bit comical. As w’ the original …

… the particulars of the transformation don’t really make sense. Also RLS’s Calvinist contemplation really shifts in this Gallic setting.

#TestamentduDocteurCordelier. ’20, ’32 & esp. ’63 are really great, but Jean-Louis Barrault’s turn here as Hyde/Opale is really astonishing!
