Radiance, by the Japanese director Naomi Kawase, pushes the boundaries of her distinctively subtle and lyrical style. Misako is an unhappy woman writing audio descriptions of films for the visually impaired. Nakamori is an aging photographer slowly losing his eyesight. When their paths intersect, it brings hope to both. Walking the line between romance and drama, the visually captivating bewitching poem examines the everyday world from new perspectives.
