Although Wild Grass doesn't reach the heights of Resnais' earliest works, it provides ample evidence that the director can still produce vibrant and thrilling work and hopefully will continue to do so through his 90s as well.

A confounding psychodrama that made me laugh in the scenes that were meant to be serious and remain mute in the scenes that were meant to be amusing.

Resnais is having fun here, possibly at the expense of audiences who demand tradition.

... a delightful reminder of the romantic streak and cinematic whimsy still in this 88-year-old cinema elder.

Director Alain Resnais? roundabout romance about missed connections and misplaced intentions is gorgeous to watch but difficult to track.

I recognize the Resnais I love in this movie, poking through here and there, a fumble-fingered god experimenting with his creation: a wobbly, lopsided world warmed by its maker's affection.

Wild Grass is about the randomness of life, and how the meaning behind arbitrary events is incomprehensible and opaque. This also describes what the experience of watching the film is like.

Alain Resnais keeps sprouting marvelous artistic herbage at an age when most of his contemporaries are pushing up grass from a different perspective.

Wild Grass is the vision of Alain Resnais. He suggests that anything can happen in movies. Or in our imaginations.

Resnais' funky, frothy bonbon of a film is nevertheless a breathtaking sight to see.

Wild Grass is nearly the same movie as Amelie, only minus the charm and the appeal.

Wild Grass is a mess, and not in a particularly compelling way.

Camera movements, graphic matches, and strange tonal balances carry a lot of expressive weight in this story about chance encounters, creepy follow-ups, and abrupt changes of heart.

At age 88, Resnais hasn't lost his capacity to confound.

A fanciful exercise in aesthetic and intellectual masturbation?

These are not likable characters, or even ones who seem to have regular contact with Planet Earth.

Wild Grass might be the strangest film I've seen all year. Maybe all millennium. Is it any good? Quite frankly, I have no idea.
