Competition: Win ‘Lilting’ on DVD *closed*

A touching, intimate drama about love, loss, communication and culture which wowed this year’s BFI Flare, Lilting (2014) features rousing performances from its two leads Ben Whishaw (Cloud Atlas, Skyfall) and Cheng Pei-pei and has also announced director Hong Khaou as a brave new voice in independent British filmmaking. To celebrate the eagerly awaited DVD and Blu-ray release of Lilting this coming Monday (29 September), we have THREE DVD copies of Hong’s remarkable debut feature to give away to our readers, kindly provided by the film’s UK distributor Artificial Eye. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven’t already, ‘Like’ us at or follow us @CineVue before answering the question below.

Lilting tells the moving story of a Cambodian-Chinese mother (Cheng) mourning the untimely death of her son, Kai (Andrew Leung). Her world is disrupted further by the appearance of his ex-partner (Whishaw) and we observe their difficulties in trying to connect with one another without a common language. Through a translator they piece together memories of a man they both loved dearly and realise that while they may not share a language, they are connected in their grief.

To be in with a chance of winning one of THREE copies of Hong Khaou’s Lilting on DVD, just answer the following simple question:

Lilting star Ben Whishaw played recurrent character Q in Bond film Skyfall. What does Q stand for?

a) Quartermaster
b) Quatermass
