Lilting (15)


What is like to live in a world where you have no grasp of its language, and your only lifeline to that is lost.

The critical consensus

Lilting isn't a film of simple solutions and happy endings but, for all its sorrow, what it leaves you with is hope.

***(*)(*)Emma Simmonds, The List, 05/08/2014

Peter Bowles adds comic relief, but it’s the fully invested leads and graceful, poetic direction that give this study of emotional interiors its subtly heartbreaking power.

****(*)Kevin Harley, Total Film, 04/08/2014

A mature and moving debut feature from Cambodian director Hong Khaou with strong turns from Whishaw and Pei-Pei.

****(*)Patrick Peters, Empire Online, 04/08/2014

Admired from a distance, this is a promising debut from Hong Khaou.
