  1. Stian Gledje Bekkvik's rating of the film The Mouth Agape

  2. Alejo y Luciana's rating of the film The Mouth Agape

    Un tratamiento de personajes desde el desasociego y la angustia, llevado al amor y pintado con una fotografía preciosa. Pialat es un idolo.

  3. Superfrog's rating of the film The Mouth Agape

    Poignant, realist, with another satire character, but ultimately a bit pointless.

  4. HALLENSLEBEN's rating of the film The Mouth Agape

  5. Silke Neryn's rating of the film The Mouth Agape

  6. FISCHER's rating of the film The Mouth Agape

    Une oeuvre splendide et grave, qui fut un sombre échec commercial, dont la rigueur et la véracité dans l'approche d'un quotidien mortuaire, frisent la perfection... www.cinefiches.com

  7. Victor Morosoff's rating of the film The Mouth Agape

  9. Royce Jr.'s rating of the film The Mouth Agape

  10. David Grillo's rating of the film The Mouth Agape

    So we won't forget what are differences look like. Life and death laid bare. The life around death the complexities of human beings and the things we do to stay alive He doesn't film death without the presence of life until the movement at the end. Such a clear estimation of what death is from the living. Her death bed like an evaporating cloud final gasps of air before your family knows your dead Was she even aware?

  11. Matthew Martens's rating of the film The Mouth Agape

    Pitilessly, but without cruelty, Pialat pries open the devouring void we live in the midst of, against which he shows us the devouring void our bodies are organized around. Mouths within mouths. Defiantly flat of affect for all its flashes of flesh, alternating scenes of hushed deathbed rattle with banal carnal distractions, it mounts towards a kind of kitchen-sink cosmic horror, a matter-of-fact kick in the gut.

  12. CarlosEsquives's rating of the film The Mouth Agape

    Pialat toma como centro de atención (mas no como protagonista principal) a una moribunda. Todos los personajes giran en su entorno. Estos la asisten, pero mientras tanto no descuidan sus costumbres, especialmente las malas. Hay sin embargo un sufrimiento, uno sin dramatismos. Es una película sobre la espera a la innevitable muerte de un familiar. Es la excusa también para rememorar viejos resentimientos. Muy sincero.

    Philippe Léotard has the face of a disney prince.

  16. εξώτερο Διάστημα's rating of the film The Mouth Agape

    romanian new wave before it was actually born.

  17. Peter Rinaldi's rating of the film The Mouth Agape

    A difficult experience that won't leave me for some time.

  18. João Eça's rating of the film The Mouth Agape

    One of the most insulting films that I've watched. Pialat has no love for his characters, he only wishes to denegrate them by showing their vices and faults. There's no emotion, no love, no feeling. A cold-blooded "hyper-realist" cinema that seems like a fascist soap opera that says nothing of the world we live in. Every form is thought to shock: this is Von Trier without the slow motions or porno sequences.

  19. Altero's rating of the film The Mouth Agape

    “On dirait le Négus à l’enterrement du Général De Gaulle”

  22. Eliecer's rating of the film The Mouth Agape

    "You're so lazy. You never do anything. If it wasn't for me, you'd live like a tramp." I also owe my life to two women.

  23. Guy Sands's rating of the film The Mouth Agape

    Jacques Villeret and Jean-François Balmer were cut from the film and are in the special features of the Masters of Cinema Series DVD.

  24. Jugu Abraham's rating of the film The Mouth Agape

    40 years ago, when I saw Maurice Pialat's "The Mouth Agape" for the first time, I recognized its high quality. Today, thousands of movies later, it still remains on my top 100 films list and I rate it to be subtler and better than the works of Godard, Truffaut, and Chabrol in French cinema and Haneke's "Amour".
