Film synopsis

An edgy urban drama, Mouth to Mouth follows the lives of four young people, desperate to carve out a better existence in a harsh and unforgiving world. One night, after a fight with other inmates, teenagers Carrie (Kim Krejus) and Jeanie (Sonia Peat) escape from a juvenile detention centre and hide out from the police in a derelict factory. Finding work in a roadside cafe, they meet Tim (Ian Gilmore) and Serge (Serge Frazzetto), two young country guys who have come to the city looking for work. After an eventful first night together, the girls invite the two boys to stay on with them in the old factory. While Serge and Tim look for a job, the girls supplement the boy’s dole cheques through ingenious methods of petty theft from shops and supermarkets. Over time, the four become increasingly close, and manage to make a communal home together in the derelict factory. Gradually, Carrie’s ambitions for a more glamorous future place increasing strains on their friendship. A compassionate and engaging trip to the outer-edge of youthful discovery, from award-winning filmmaker John Duigan (The Year My Voice Broke, Sirens) – Mouth To Mouth is presented in a brand new widescreen transfer, capturing an era with raw intensity.
