Radiator review – pathos and heartache in a dysfunctional family drama

A masterful final performance from Richard Johnson crowns this authentic, bleak and unexpectedly funny film

Richard Johnson is mesmerising in his final lead role as the cantankerously debilitated father whose loving but long-suffering wife (Gemma Jones, exceptional) and estranged son (co-writer Daniel Cerqueira) struggle to care for him. Shot in the Cumbrian home of his late parents, co-writer Tom Browne’s directorial feature debut has an unmistakable air of authenticity that brings real pathos and heartache to some of the film’s bleakest moments. But there is a palpable warmth, too, in the dysfunctional family dynamics, while moments of unexpected laughter dispel the darker clouds of the past.

Radiator review – absorbing portrait of ageing and unhappiness

This intelligent, deeply personal work explores the often overlooked domestic lives of older people, to outstanding effect

Andrew Haigh’s 45 Years recently exploited the relatively unnoticed cinematic potential in the domestic lives of older people: the secret existences of a long marriage. Michael Haneke’s Amour, in its more exacting and terrifying way, did too.

Now this excellent debut from British writer-director Tom Browne approaches the same territory: an intimate, micro-budget drama which is absorbing, subtle and outstandingly acted. (Browne was the co-writer of Ben Hopkins’s The Nine Lives of Tomas Katz in 2000, and has had a substantial acting career under the name Tom Fisher.) His co-writer, Daniel Cerqueira, plays Daniel, a lonely middle-aged teacher in London, who receives a desperate telephone call from his elderly mother, Maria (Gemma Jones). His cantankerous and impossible father, Leonard (Richard Johnson), has evidently taken to lying on the downstairs couch, apparently stricken

Film Review: ‘Radiator’

Film Review: ‘Radiator’
The personal experience of looking after one’s aging parents rings achingly true in “Radiator,” the directorial debut of Tom Browne, co-writer of 2001’s “The Nine Lives of Tomas Katz.” Depicting an adult son trying to support his long-suffering mother as she deals with her unraveling yet domineering husband, this family drama echoes Michael Haneke’s “Amour” in its subject matter, although the grotty setting couldn’t be further from that film’s chic Paris apartment. Flashes of dark humor and deeply resonant performances by the two senior actors (Richard Johnson, Gemma Jones) should help sell this specialty item to select audiences following a well-received London Film Festival bow.

In choosing to set his film at the real Cumbria stone cottage of his deceased parents, Browne takes advantage of a striking Lake District location and a chaotically jumbled interior, which no set decorator could ever hope to match. It’s
