Filme: Lilting (2014)
It is an intimate and thoughtful film about what is like to live in a world where you have no grasp of its language, and your only lifeline to that is lost. It’s about falling in love without a common language, forming relationships without a common language. How necessary it is to overcome cultural and generational barriers. Memory, grief, our familiar and often difficulties with language and communication are explored.
Set in contemporary London, a Cambodian Chinese mother is mourning the untimely death of her son, when her world is suddenly disrupted by the presence of a stranger. With no common language they struggle to connect. Gradually, with the help of a translator, they piece together memories of a man they both loved dearly – and find solace in their grief.
