Movie Info

LA MAISON DE LA RADIO is a vibrant portrait of Radio France, that nation's equivalent of NPR or the BBC. Directed by Nicolas Philibert (To Be and To Have), a master of the documentary genre, LA MAISON shows the day-to-day of a beloved cultural institution, as radio hosts, producers and journalists produce a vast array of shows to "culture-loving, politics-mad, talk-obsessed France" (Variety).

Critic Reviews for La Maison De La Radio

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (15)

Behind it all lies the sense that here is something worth preserving, a celebration of radio's unique conversational appeal, a unifying force in times of splintered televisuality.

[Documentary maker Nicolas Philibert's] admiration for Radio France's work and public-service ethos is self-evident, but this is a very hard film for a non-French audience to engage with.

Looking at La Maison de la Radio in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo crisis, what strikes you is how conventional and white French state radio seems.

Top Critic

A pleasant, undemanding, rather Wiseman-lite study of a day in the life of Radio France, with all its producers, announcers, editors and tech people placidly busying themselves about their work.

It's not exactly a chore to sit through, but you'd hardly chalk it up as scintillating viewing.

"La Maison de la Radio" gives us the pleasant experience of hanging out with people who truly love their work.
