Radio On

Quinzaine 1980 | Feature film | 1h41

A movie shot in black and white that shows a country in decline during the coldest winter in almost forty years and people wonder that the result is depressing. I’ve given up being surprised. For me, « Radio On » was always about something else : about different forms of speed (which, as we well know, is an artificial stimulant) ; about the moment when boredom becomes an interesting obsession. Like driving down the motorway with the radio on.
