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+
