Movie Reviews

ReviewExpress.com - 9/10 by Jean Lowerison A quiet chamber piece that reflects on family, communication, grief and misunderstanding.
Blu-ray.com - 9/10 by Brian Orndorf It's an impressive effort from Khaou, who secures profound emotions without resorting to melodrama, taking the audience on a strange journey of confession.
CultureCatch - 9/10 by Brandon Judell Khaou's debut feature is exhilarating in its craft, its performances, and its tale of the eventual fusing of two disparate hearts.
Indiewire - 9/10 by Mary Sollosi Whishaw's sensitive performance gives Lilting its emotional intensity.
Philadelphia Inquirer - 9/10 by Tirdad Derakhshani Hong, who makes his feature debut here, has a masterful command of rhythm, beautifully weaving each strand of the narrative around that momentous opening scene.
San Francisco Chronicle - 8/10 by Thomas Lee Guilt hangs over "Lilting," a suffocating haze so thick that it permeates every unspoken, non-understood word between characters trying to traverse a frustrating gulf of language and grief.
Total Film - 8/10 by Kevin Harley It's the fully invested leads and graceful, poetic direction that give this study of emotional interiors its subtly heartbreaking power.

Empire Magazine - 8/10 by Patrick Peters A mature and moving debut feature from Cambodian director Hong Khaou with strong turns from Whishaw and Pei-Pei.
New Statesman - 8/10 by Ryan Gilbey This is a world where touching and looking can express more than a monologue.
New York Post - 8/10 by Sara Stewart Cultures and generations clash and mesh in the aftermath of a young man's death in "Lilting," a quietly unique meditation on love and loss from Cambodian director Hong Khaou.
Daily Express (UK) - 8/10 by Brigit Grant Be patient with it and you will be rewarded as it is a little gem that offers consolation to anyone who has lost someone special.
