Rated PG · 104 minutes · 2009

Director Alain Resnais made two landmark films about World War II early in his career. The first is a documentary about concentration camps called Night and Fog, and the second is film-school-fodder Hiroshima mon amour. It was only a year after World War II that Resnais’ first feature film was released, and 65 years later, he shows that he’s still thinking of new ways to tell stories with Wild Grass. The problem is that he’s actually thinking this movie to death. What could be a deep dive into compulsion, obsession and rejection is too flowery, too wordy and too soft around the edges. While you have to applaud the effort of a guy Betty White’s age still getting behind the camera, there’s not much onscreen that deserves a big ovation.
