  1. 70
    A rough but boldly imaginative first feature by British-Canadian writer-director Alison Murray.
  2. Writer-director Alison Murray picks at a hard, true hurt in this zombie melodrama of defloration, but nothing beyond that hurt really comes into focus.
  3. Canadian-born choreographer Alison Murray draws on her own experiences as a 15-year-old runaway living in squats and on the streets, in her feature-filmmaking debut, which is a clear-eyed look at the pleasures and price of abandoning conventional mores for experimental lifestyles.
  4. Like the homeless kids at its center, Alison Murray's feature debut is passionate, angry and suffering from a serious lack of discipline.
  5. 50
    Filmmaker Alison Murray drew on her own experiences, but Mouth to Mouth would have benefited from more focus and fewer dance sequences.
  6. 40
    As the film progresses, however, Murray becomes less and less sure of where things are heading or what it is she is trying to get at, such that the last few reels feel perfunctory and unengaged.
  7. A grim little drama about a young woman's experiences with a left-wing cult, Alison Murray's debut feature suffers from disjointed storytelling and myriad other problems, including a bizarre reliance on modern dance sequences to interrupt the action.

    Appalling in the way that it is insanely well acted by ellen page. Much much much much much better than the curious case if Benjamin button Appalling in the way that it is insanely well acted by ellen page. Much much much much much better than the curious case if Benjamin button which I watched in the same night. Good effects, horribly copied Forrest gump, and really boring but mouth to mouth is great all around. Expand

    When Harry(Eric Thal) takes away Sherry's innocence, she has half of her feminine wiles; a half-shaved head, but the older man is lured When Harry(Eric Thal) takes away Sherry's innocence, she has half of her feminine wiles; a half-shaved head, but the older man is lured into temptation nevertheless by her nubile mystique. In cases of sexual misconduct, a man will blame the woman for turning him on. Sherry's partly-bald pate neutralizes this wrongful claim because sex is often more about power than desire. It doesn't matter if Sherry(Ellen Page) has beautiful hair or not. Harry wants to own her. "Mouth to Mouth" is more avant-garde(modern dance replaces dialogue in some instances) than your average run-of-the-mill indie. "Mouth to Mouth" gets interesting when it dawns on the viewer that this neo-collective of free-spirits is actually a cult. Expand

    Just... it's just a very strange movie. Takes some real serious issues, touches on some interesting ideas, glances at some beautiful moments.Just... it's just a very strange movie. Takes some real serious issues, touches on some interesting ideas, glances at some beautiful moments. But the entire movie seems to flounder. It's very mixed up, as if the writers weren't sure what kind of story they actually wanted to tell. The result is this meandering movie that has potential that it doesn't ever approach.

    The entire film is carried by Ellen Page's fantastic acting. At its best, Mouth to Mouth is just confused, and needs more direction before it approaches a good film.
