sadly abandoned and alone
27 May 2009 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is one of Australia's most beautiful and emotionally rewarding films...and like the characters in a film about homelessness and abandonment..so is this film today. ..a fate so completely undeserved. The irony that a superb film so engaging and complete and humane is forgotten when the topic is homelessness of genuine teens so ready for life yet so completely abandoned is quite sad really...as sad as the film itself. Kim Krejus and Ian Gilmour are teens eking out an existence, poor, cold and clinging to each other and this glorious small film reflects their glorious small lives. It is so poignant and honest, so real and beautiful that it deserves re discovery and new applause. Upon release it was well reviewed and then slipped into obscurity and forgotten...exactly like the lives of the characters. If it is reissued as a DVD you will cheer it up as I am now. MOUTH TO MOUTH is written and directed by Australia's humanist director John Duigan...see LAWN DOGS for an interesting international success... or FLIRTING with Nicole Kidman and Thandie Newton. But seek and welcome MOUTH TO MOUTH and simply love this simple heartwarming film about poor teens in love and together....
