Marguerite (Sabine Azéma), a woman of a certain age, loses a wallet. Georges (André Dussollier), a gentleman of a certain age, finds it. And in the neurotic cha-cha involved in the item’s return, octogenarian filmmaker Alain Resnais (Last Year at Marienbad?) explores notions of chance, routine, the presentation of self, and the odd stuff that can occur when a man meets a woman, at any age. Wild Grass is itself odd stuff: Sometimes it’s as playful as Marguerite’s crayon-red corona of frizzy hair, and other times as autumnal as the sight of Georges alone in his study, feeling stuck. B+
