Thinking that she has finally found a family that genuinely care for and understand her, she settles down with them in a remote Portuguese vineyard, but things soon turn sour when she realises that she hass joined a cult with a seriously warped leader. Special features include, US Theatrical trailer, and a behind the scenes documentary. ''a terrific central performance from Ellen Page'' ViewLondon. ''This is an interesting piece of work from British director Alison Murray. A name to watch''

3.0 out of 5 stars Something of a Marmite movie 25 May 2008
By Sam Woodward TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The plot: teenage misfit Sherry (fantastically acted by Ellen Page) drops out of school & hooks up with SPARK - a group of new-age hippy-types & recovering addicts, who turn out to be a cult. She is set to work in their vineyard, where she gets some measure of the affection & sense of belonging she craves but also a psychological battering & cruel punishments, which she is told are for her own good but are ultimately down to SPARK's leader blaming everyone around him for his own issues.

I feel this subject is one oozing with potential but sadly, most of the substance was traded in for style in this movie. For instance, I initially found it very hard to 'get into' as most of the characters at first came across as being so much larger-than-life that I couldn't relate to - or care about - any of them. There was also a near-silent scene between 2 characters which was performed virtually as a dance but which didn't really fit in with the situation they were in.

That said, the second part of the film rather more captivating - mainly thanks to some beautiful cinematography & good, solid acting. However, most of the situations didn't have enough subtlety to make them convincing, so while I found it interesting & entertaining to watch, I was ultimately left feeling that Mouth To Mouth didn't have much to say.

Her lack of substance but unique & visually powerful style mean that in future, I will look out for films which Alison Murray directs but I will steer well away from any which she writes. And I will definately check out other films starring Ellen Page, who acts her socks off in this.

2.0 out of 5 stars Mouth to Mouth 24 Aug 2009
By L. Newman VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Middle of the road and nothing special, that's how I would describe this movie. Ellen Page is far more engaging in Juno and I suspect the film studios hyped this a little to much in the wake of that movie's success!

By Arheddis Varkenjaab TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This film has a very unique style to it, which takes a bit of getting used to. For the first 20mins or so, you can't decide if this arty pretentious nonsense or the developement of something special. I certainly thought it was awful to begin with - the sort of overly cinemagraphic arthouse dreadfulness that only appeals to beard stroking types, but stick with it and a dark disturbing story reveals itself. Beautifully filmed with amazing lighting and very creative filming techniques that give a slightly spaced-out and detached feel to the film which complements the story perfectly without being too blatent.

My only reservations were that Sherry, the main character, seemed too strong a character to put up with what her associates were doing for long - I felt that she wouldn't have lasted with 'the group' past her first encounter when they share out the contents of her bag.

With only a couple of slightly jarring but forgivable exceptions the acting is superb, and the story stays on the good side of ambiguous in that there is no spoon-feeding of what's going on, but it's not so vague as to leave you clueless.

This is a very very good film, and I recomend it highly. It will stay in your thoughts for a long time after watching it, and has all the hallmarks of a classic.

4.0 out of 5 stars Mouth to mouth will leave you speechless 17 July 2008
By Great White VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The reason for watching this is simple, for ellen page's performance. Apparently his was done a little before hard candy came out and it's not hard to see why the director of Hard candy chose Ellen to be his muse in hard candy. She is a born actress and the roles that she takes are well worth viewing. Although the film is slow she keeps you staring at the screen when ever she is on screen. The depiction of a teenage girl's life is well documentated and expressed with some power behind it.
if you wanna see great acting watch this.

1.0 out of 5 stars WATCH THE TRAILER AND LEAVE IT THERE 24 May 2008
By John Clayton III VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I initially watched the trailer of this film to garner an idea of what it was about, and found my interest piqued by what looked like an indy coming-of-age drama - as with many films (mainstream hollywood fare, ironically) the trailer was much better than the film it was advertising, and I should have just watched that, never going near the actual film so that it would always have the potential to be good, like some celluloid version of Schrodinger's Cat. Sadly, bringing this analogy to it's depressingly inevitable conclusion, I opened the box and not only found the cat was dead, but that it had also just penned a farewell missive in which it revealed that it had just watched Mouth To mouth, and despite being a cat with no concept of narrative conceits such as the three-act play or the Heroes' journey, let alone human concepts of adolescent rebellion and self-exploration, found the film pretentious and self-deluded, reveling in cliches while hoping to give human insight despite not featuring fleshed-out human characters to validate any of it's observations. On the back of this critique, the cat further elaborated how someone with no opposable thumb could pen a review of a movie, and also how it managed to work the dvd player, which - though interesting - has no relevance to this review.

Ellen Page stars in the role of Sherry Green, a rather cliched picture of teenage angst - complete with Hollyoaks-style lip piercing and eye-liner - manipulated and bullied into joining a homeless cult for no reason beyond that she's a cliched picture of teenage angst and such people have no thoughts of their own.
