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.

Nominated for a BAFTA award for Outstanding Debut by a British Writer, Director or Producer for director Hong Khaou.

Lilting is a 2014 British drama film written and directed by Cambodian-born British director Hong Khaou, whose short film, Spring, was selected for Sundance and Berlinale film festival 2011. It is produced by Dominic Buchanan, whose debut film Gimme The Loot had its World Premiere at SXSW in March 2012 and went on to win the Grand Jury Prize for Best Narrative Feature.

The film had its world premiere on 16 January 2014, on Day One of the Sundance Film Festival, at which it competed in the World Cinema Dramatic Competition. It won the Cinematography Award: World Cinema Dramatic at the festival. The film had a theatrical release in UK on 8 August 2014 and released on September 26, 2014 in United States.

The script, original titled Lilting the Past, won third spot in the 2011 Brit List, a list of the best unproduced British screenplays.

The film was one of three films greenlit by Microwave in early 2012. A casting call was later released for the three of the lead roles,[14] later filled by Cheng Pei-pei and Andrew Leung.

Filming began in November 2012. Director Khaou has said the film will be visually inspired by Wong Kar-wai''s In the Mood for Love.

During production, as part of the Microwave scheme, Michael Winterbottom mentored writer/director Khaou, while producer Buchanan was mentored by Ken Marshall, producer of London to Brighton, Filth and Song for Marion. As with all Microwave films, the budget was £120,000. It is the first bi-lingual film to be made under the Microwave scheme.
