Entertainment Reviews:

Box Office - 05/25/2010
4 stars out of 5 -- "WILD GRASS is colorful, smart and brought to vivid life via the rich performances..."
Sight and Sound - 07/01/2010
"As usual, inner thoughts subvert outward appearances. Also back is Resnais' trademark blend of studio artifice and location filming, along with idiosyncratic editing..."
A.V. Club - 06/24/2010
"[G]ood-natured and ebullient....So bright and funny that it's hard not to be at least a little enchanted." -- Grade: B+
Movieline - 06/22/2010
"[WILD GRASS is] Alain Resnais's jazzy ode to cinema and the love impulse in later life..."
New York Times - 06/25/2010
"Eric Gautier's voluptuous cinematography is synchronized with Mark Snow's lush jazz-inflected music to evoke a tantalizing sense of mystery reminiscent of an Alfred Hitchcock cat-and-mouse game."
Entertainment Weekly - 12/01/2009
"Resnais explores notions of chance, routine, the presentation of self, and the odd stuff that can occur when a man meets a woman..." -- Grade: B+
Chicago Sun-Times - 07/14/2010
3 stars out of 5 -- "[P]raise must be given. WILD GRASS is carefree and anarchic, takes bold risks, spins in unexpected directions."
Uncut - 02/01/2011
4 stars out of 5 -- "WILD GRASS spirals into fanciful stylistic invention....The overall exuberance is breathtaking."
Total Film - 02/01/2011
3 stars out of 5 -- "Alain Resnais has been playing games with his audience for 50 years, an impulse that's as strong as ever here."

Product Description:

Alain Resnais, one of the towering figures of the French New Wave, demonstrates he still has plenty to say in this drama based on a novel by Christian Gailly. Marguerite (Sabine Azéma) is a successful dentist with a busy practice and an offbeat hobby, flying small airplanes. One day, while running errands, Marguerite loses her wallet, and it's found by Georges (André Dussollier), a seemingly happy man with a wife, Suzanne (Anne Consigny), and two children (Vladimir Consigny and Sara Forestier). As Georges looks through the wallet and examines the photos of Marguerite, he finds he's fascinated with her and her life, and soon his curiosity about her becomes an obsession. Georges' attempts to integrate himself into Marguerite's life begin to alarm her, and she hires a private security team (Mathieu Amalric and Michel Vuillermoz) to keep him away, but Georges is determined that his new love for her will not be denied. LES HERBES FOLLES (aka WILD GRASS) received its world premiere at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival.
