» SCENEandHEARD Review - Mouth to Mouth

by Anna Stitski, published in November 2005

Ellen Page gives an awesome performance as Sherry, a teenage runaway trying to find herself and her place in the world. She is intrigued and seduced by SPARK – Street People Armed with Radical Knowledge and joins them as they travel through Europe in their dilapidated campers, recruiting members. The voyage is injected with sex, drugs and tragedy.

The music helps set the mood of this thought provoking and at times, moving film. We watch the subtle elimination of the individuality of Sherry and the other recruits and the ultimate strength of the seemingly weak. The charismatic and controlling leader of SPARK offers his recruits, who are mostly street urchins and druggies, an alternative – a better way, a paradise. Or does he?

Sherry’s teenage angst is real and her journey to self-discovery is riveting. This movie gives a great insight into how cults and cult leaders are able to enchant and manipulate the young and the not so young.

In Mouth to Mouth, Ellen Page clearly demonstrates she is a talent to watch out for and her performance leaves no question as to why this movie was voted Best of the Fest at the Brooklyn International Film Festival. Catch it if you can during its short run at Camera Bar (1028 Queen St. W.), November 11 – 28, 7 pm & 9 pm nightly. It’s a film worth seeing.
