Critic Reviews



Based on 6 critic reviews provided by Metacritic.com
The subject may be glum but there is something consistently pleasurable about Mouthpiece, a film that is both audacious in execution and relatable, even for those of us who don't live in women's bodies.
Best of all, they haven't sacrificed emotional impact. Mouthpiece is a deeply moving piece of work.
In revealing Cassandra’s interior life, Rozema lays bare the modern female condition in an epic battle that is by turns lacerating, soothing and heartbreaking.
Ultimately, the filmmakers’ intention isn’t to throw us off but to invite us in, to encourage us to wonder: Is it really so strange for one woman to have two reactions to life?
There are times when this visual twist confuses rather than elucidates. However, there’s no denying the bracing, honest nature of Mouthpiece, a truly revolutionary piece of filmmaking.
The film is notable more for its unusual conceit than as a serious exploration of grief and familial relationships.
