Whether or not you consider this a banal topic, it's plain to see that the puttering documentary doesn't achieve magnificence.

Given only hints of personalities and the thinnest strands of stories, we're left with a hum of tinny snippets instead of anything that resembles the glorious noise of people putting on show after show after show.

As Mr. Philibert continues to pop in and out of different studios, in and out of the building, flitting from one face to the other, it feels as if he were searching for a story that never emerges.

La Maison de la Radio is the kind of film that divides its audience into two camps: those happy to observe and those impatient to be told a story.

It's a film for Francophiles of the deepest dye, a grand tour of French culture and preoccupations.

There is a resemblance between "La Maison de la Radio" and tuning in to a public radio station: You may not know what you're going to get, but there's a pretty good chance it will be worth your time.

As we watch hosts and announcers talk away on the air, the movie begins to feel like a series of communications between the speakers-and unseen millions.

Ninety percent of the success of any good documentary is in the editing, and Philibert is a master of the art, sifting through what one assumes must have been months of footage to give La Maison de la Radio an engaging rhythm and structure.

A terrific docu from Gallic nonfiction filmmaker Nicolas Philibert, "La Maison de la radio" adds revealing images to sounds that will be familiar to millions of French public-radio listeners.

The most memorable moments in La Maison De La Radio are purely visual, as DJs hold court from behind a stack of CDs, and broadcasters bustle their way through the curved halls.

This might just be the ultimate cine-snob movie: a documentary about French public broadcasting.
