"A boisterous breath of new invention.… A hugely entertaining story of unrequited love."—The Independent (UK)

"A visual pleasure!"—Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

A brilliant and unpredictable fable of love and cinema, Wild Grass is another masterful film by the French New Wave legend Alain Resnais. A wallet lost and found opens the door—slightly—to Georges and Marguerite's romantic adventure. Georges examines the wallet and begins to wonder about the woman who lost it. Marguerite wonders about the intentions of the man who found her wallet. The bizarre developments of their crazy romance are conveyed with bold colors, cinematic virtuosity, and thrilling unpredictability.

One of the greatest living filmmakers, Resnais has given us such classics as Hiroshima Mon Amour, Night and Fog, Last Year at Marienbad, and Mon Oncle d’Amerique and was the subject of a Wexner Center retrospective in January 2010. Wild Grass stars veteran Resnais collaborators Andre Dussollier and Sabine Azéma, as well as two of France's most talented actors Mathieu Amalric and Emmanuelle Devos. (104 mins., 35mm)
