Those of us familiar with Isabelle Huppert tend to associate her with her more fearless roles in films like The Piano Teacher (Michael Haneke, 2001).  What fun it is to take in a true crowd pleaser like Mama Weed in which Huppert plays a translator working for the police, who gets involved in the other side of drug dealing.  The stakes are high, but the film plays it fairly light, and it is a joy to watch Huppert stay one step ahead of her bumbling colleagues in the police department as they struggle to discover her alter ego.
