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.

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

Wild Grass is cute stuff...maybe too cute.

Resnais gives us the occasional delightful dose of whimsy -- yet since so many events are sheer nonsense, the initial delight devolves into a slog.

It's no surprise that Resnais's story has a decreasingly strong grip on the real world as it goes

Never congeal[s] into an emotionally coherent or compelling whole.

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

Wild Grass isn't for all tastes, an isolating impact helped along by the puzzling finale, which reward the patient viewer with a conclusion that's certainly interpretive, but mostly ridiculous.

Alain Renais's condensing of Chrisitan Gailly's novel "L'Incident" functions more as a random cinematic lark than it does as a film.

The most infuriating movie I've seen this year, and I saw Marmaduke.

...while this whimsical film does not seem like the work of a man nearing ninety, it also lacks focus. Or at least Resnais isn't making it easy to be let in on his joke.

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.

The 87-year-old filmmaker's latest is an insufferable exercise in cutie-pie modernism, painfully unfunny and precious to a fault.
June 28, 2010
Too oblique, too arch.
July 8, 2010
It exhausts its welcome after 10 minutes and keeps exhausting it for 90 more.

At 88, the legendary French director Alain Resnais has earned the right to make whatever movie he wants, even a smug deconstructionist parlor game like Wild Grass. Thankfully, this doesn't require you to watch it.

From legendary French filmmaker Alain Resnais comes this oddball, increasingly unwatchable effort...

Required viewing only for anybody writing a doctoral thesis on Resnais...

A tiresome whimsy.
