Uncompromising coming-of-age drama starring Ellen Page. When idealistic teenager Sherry (Page) meets a group of like-minded, counter-culture activists, she joins them in their trek across Europe. When the group settles in an abandoned Portuguese vineyard to set up their own private Shangri-la, the fiery rhetoric of their leader, Harry (Eric Thal), begins to take on an ominous tone. Sherry soon realises that the radical group she joined is nothing more than a cult designed to carry out Harry's warped, violent visions...

In this 2005 social drama Sherry (Ellen Page), is a rebellious teen touring and living on the streets of Berlin, stumbles across the anarcho syndicalist group S*P*A*R*K and immediately joins their clan of orphans, runaways, drug addicts and social misfits on a journey through France and Iberia. But while expecting a no rules lifestyle, she is soon made aware that the group functions along its own ever change rule system. So how will she cope when tragedy, social pressures and differing viewpoints bring the members into conflict?
Anyone whose ever ‘roughed it’ or moved on societies fringes will easily identify with the first part of this film. Essentially its a tale of daydreams crashing into the stark reality of the big wide world and is full of artistic symbolism, nudged along by an ever changing and diverse soundtrack. However, some scenes do grate on the nerves as the syrupy happy communal bits often seem to jar with the main underlying theme and characters change attitudes at the drop of a hat.
The single disc loads straight to main menu offering play, chapters and bonus features [basically a trailer and behind the scenes].
What starts as seemingly exaggerated nonsense, soon develops into a social and emotional struggle as Sherry tries to understand the events and relationships around her and soon learns that freedom carries a price and responsibilities and not everything is as it seems. However the final half hour is a let down and fails to convince lacking any true emotion or tension reducing this to a ***.

Mouth to mouth is very different to anything else I have seen, at first I couldn't get into it and almost switched off after about 20 minutes but you can't help but be drawn in by Ellen Page's performance. The dark and disturbing story slowly comes together and some scenes are shocking. The look of the film is grainy and dull but this adds to the story and the feel of it, I went from wanting to switch this off to loving it by the end. Just give it a fair chance, it stuck with me for days after watching it.

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.

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.

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.
