Critic Reviews for Radiance (Hikari)

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (3)

  • A gentle, thoughtful and reflective movie.

  • Radiance remains mired in underwritten relationships that end up less emotionally engaging than they appear, as well as pompous lines much less meaningful than they sound.

  • A gentle-hearted, quintessentially new-age but fatally cloying new outing from Japan's premier cinematic naturalist Naomi Kawase.

  • It becomes a little too academic, dragging itself into meta cul-de-sacs and losing sight of a broader emotional arc that might be more appealing. Kawase tells this story very well, but it's a little too niche to truly hit home.

  • The film moves languidly, pausing interminably on the innumerable close-ups and somehow manages to render a potentially profound take on the urgency for conversation and interaction into maudlin melodrama.

    Jul 11, 2018 | Full Review…
  • While it never so much as dips its toe into cloying, melodramatic waters, the thoughtful rumination does embrace sentimentality and earnest intentions.
