More than any other of John Duigan's films of the 1970s, Mouth to Mouth best represents the transitional stage of much of the thematic preoccupations that have given his work commercial and critical success through the 1980s. ... The film revolves around four homeless, unemployed youths attempting to scratch an emotional and reasonably 'civil' existence out of the wasteland of a heavily industrialised urban environment.
