Maybe the fact that this is getting 6.4 out of 10 on this site is evidence of the forgettable non-impact of this film. I usually enjoy French films and the way they don't insult the viewer's intelligence and their ability to make you feel involved with the characters. That is really why I didn't enjoy this. Thoroughly forgettable, characters who you really don't care about – including a thoroughly unlikeable main male character and his wife who puts up with his obsessive tendencies- and a whimsical plot that really doesn't know where it is going. I had heard some good things about this before I watched it and then wondered why I had listened ! One to miss.

I am no stranger to anti-realist, surrealist, and experimental film. I thought it would be interesting to see a recent Resnais film that was actually available at Redbox! I was wrong. Wild Grass is neither amusing nor interesting. It is tedious, ridiculous, and nonsensical (and not in a good way). It "hints" at many aspects of the main character's past and personality, playfully suggesting he was a convicted murderer or rapist who has served his time. In addition to that, he acts in completely contradictory ways, is usually irrational and petulant, and is lecherous, dumb, and abusive to women. He slashes the woman's tires and she eventually finds this kind of behavior irresistible? He sexually assaults her business partner/friend in the latter's car, and the friend enjoys it?
