Nathan M (jp) wrote: Using the construct of a language barrier, director Hong Khaou is able to create a film about people in two separate worlds, from two separate times learning to love one another. With fantastic performances from Ben Whishaw, who is quickly becoming one of my favorite actors, and Pei-pei Chung, Lilting is a beautiful journey towards acceptance of the truth, the past, and one another. Both of these leads are rather fantastic in their own rights. Chung has an anger in her eyes that is masked by her cultural and generational bent towards politeness and formality. She never is completely rude to Whishaw's character, but she certainly is radiating a hurt and an anger that is palpable in every scene.On the other hand, Whishaw is also portraying a tenderness and a kindness that is masking another deep anger. His guilt and his resentment towards Chung is so clear in every scene, but he's able to still portray a wounded person who just wants to do one last kindness for the man he loved. These two performances carry the film, and force audience members, no matter who you better relate to in this story, to see another perspective other than their own. This is something film can do that sets it apart from other mediums.Coming in under 90 minutes, Lilting is a rather economic film. No scene is wasted, everything matters. Every character matters. Even a character like Whishaw's translator, portrayed by Naomi Christie, who in other films would be treated as a throwaway character, director Hong Khaou gives her own development. It's such a beautiful and sweet-hearted film that never falls into contrivances or syrupy-sweet moments, it earns every emotional movement. It works because Khaou cares about the characters and cares about telling a story built for cinema.

James C (de) wrote: When Angela re-awakens from being fatally shot by her boyfriend, she discovers that the zombie population she is now a part of causes her as many problems as the human population did when she was alive.Starting off with a kind of mocumentary feel, this movie is slow to get going, but as it progresses the plot becomes more black comedy and easy to watch and by the end had me giggling a few times. The characters are all as over the top as you would expect, and the actors play their parts with a large amount of gusto. The gore though a little amateurish at times, is frequent there are enough body parts flying around to keep any horror fan happy. On the whole this is a good movie that even though feels a little too long in places takes the zombie genre in right direction that certain other recent entries have failed to do.
