"Wild Grass", a French movie

"Wild Grass", a French movie by Alain Resnais, with subtitles.
James and I watched this film last night.
The new French films are most intriguing nowadays.
Marguerite loses her wallet, and by chance Georges finds the wallet by the wheel of his car in a shopping center's parking garage. This one item opens the door to a strange relationship between the two. One has a sense that Georges has a very "dark" secret about his past - like having committed a crime. Marguerite on the other hand has very unique feet that require having her travel to a special store to obtain her shoes, this is when she "loses" her wallet.
The ending will leave you wondering exactly thinking "what really did happen?"
We thoroughly enjoyed the movie, wonderful music, great photograpy. Hope you will give it a try!
