Critics reviews

I agree with the detractors of WILD GRASS (and there are a lot of them out there, and will be more) that the movie’s all folly—where I disagree with them is that I think it’s a great film, possibly a masterpiece of follies: authorial, dramatic, cinematic, emotional.

Wild Grass is a relatively gentle work when placed beside Hiroshima mon amour (1959) or Providence (1977), but it still has the pundits guessing: what is this brazenly youthful film from a man of 87 – deadly serious, or an extended joke? A summing-up of the œuvre, or a taking-off into unknown skies? It manages, magisterially, to be all of these things at once.

…This is a film whose pastel hues and intricate color coding (e.g., the multiple associations of blue with the hero, played by André Dussollier, and the various associations of red with at least two of the main women in the story, played by Sabine Azéma and Anne Consigny) may come even closer to comic-book images than those in I Want To Go Home. Wild Grass seems personal above all as an expression of Resnais’ (personal) shyness, although it doesn’t for me qualify as one of his masterpieces.
