Critic Reviews for Radiance (Hikari)

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (2)

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.

Top Critic

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.

While it never so much as dips its toe into cloying, melodramatic waters, the thoughtful rumination does embrace sentimentality and earnest intentions.

While Ayame Misaki and Masatoshi Nagase deliver sympathetic performances, they can't compete with Kawase's overbearing sense of self-importance.

Nov 22, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Radiance perseveres with its gentle optimism despite Nakamori's anger and his gradually worsening vision.
