Twenty-four hours in the life of Radio France, from one dawn to another. Along its corridors, inside its recording studios, with its producers, presenters, journalists and various guests.

I liked it! It's the kind of documentaries that let the subject talk for itself (quite literally) without meddling with the viewing pleasure by suggesting a narrative. Not much happens, I am certain that for some it will be a snoozefest, but it's quite engaging, and funny. The author is so sympathetic towards its subject, making fun of no-one, always showing everyone at their most interesting, professional, human.
It's not for everyone I guess; there is no drama, no critique, no denunciation, it's an intimate and suffuse portrait with some comedic moments, and an occasion to play cultural celebrity spotting. In a few decades it will be a prized object of nostalgia, a very alive document of a bygone era.
