Alain Resnais’ LES HERBES FOLLES (Wild Grass) Movie Pictures
Check out the trailer for LES HERBES FOLLES starring Sabine Azéma, André Dussollier, Anne Consigny, Emmanuelle Devos, Mathieu Amalric, Michel Vuillermoz, and directed by Alain Resnais.
Les Herbes Folles is part of the Masters lineup at the 2009 Toronto International Film Festival.
Alain Resnais is the famous director behind Hiroshima mon amour, Mon oncle d’Amérique, On connaît la chanson, Pas sur la bouche, and many more. You might also recognize Mathieu Amalric as the bad guy in Quantum of Solace, and André Dussollier from Tell No One. I am personally looking forward to checking out this movie.
Les Herbes Folles Synopsis: When Georges, an elderly, happily married house-husband and father of two, comes across a wallet in a parking lot, he is intrigued by a photograph of its owner that he discovers within. Marguerite is a single dentist who happens to fly airplanes as a hobby. Georges cannot decide if he should contact Marguerite, and this dithering over whether or not to approach her sets the tone for the bizarre moments of miscommunication that underline their relationship. Resnais observes their elaborate dance of attraction and rejection, hesitation and impulsiveness with all the wisdom of an artist who loves his characters and revels in their misadventures.
Les Herbes Folles will be released to theaters in France on November 4, 2009. Check out a clip (sorry no subtitles) and more pictures below.
