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.
| Original Score: 2/5

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.
