WILD GRASS, A film by Alain Resnais, PG, 104MIN, in French with English subtitles.
FILM DISCUSSION : Lead by Shauna Coolican after the screening of Wild Grass on Monday August 30 at 4:00pm.
A wallet lost and found opens the door—slightly—to romantic adventure in Wild Grass, an appealing, absurd comedy/drama directed by legendary French filmmaker Alain Resnais, fifty years after Hiroshima Mon Amour. After examining the ID of its owner, it is not a simple matter for Georges to turn in to the police the red wallet he has found. Nor can Marguerite retrieve her wallet without being piqued with curiosity about the person who found it. She phones to thank him, and he returns the call, as well as several letters, and soon has escalated the simple encounter to an
extreme. Resnais uses a speculative light touch and a delightful candycolored palette to create an effervescent flight of fancy, full of possibilities.
