A Mouthful Of Air is an open story of depression and suffering. A film that moves in line with real life in its storytelling, but fails to advance cinematic goals. Be with Zomji by reviewing this film.
A Mouth Full of Air is a film about a painful life. A Mouthful Of Air is a drama whose plot does not penetrate deep into the trauma and can only be felt by those who have experienced a period of depression. The film is a realistic work, far from the hustle and bustle full of knots and conflicts, and it wants to enter the crisis of mental and inner turmoil from a closer and less seen angle. This show of its trump card leads to a large and unsolvable weakness. A mouth full of air is very clever in choosing ideas and stories, but it is weak in developing them and its idea remains simple. The film could have been a more effective and successful work in the field of psychology, but with its setbacks and setbacks, it loses that chance. In fact, the film likes to be simple in its original form and not get into strong and shocking payoffs.
Amanda Seyfred (Amanda Michelle Seyfried) The turning point in her mouth is full of air, she has overcome Julie with great experience, close to depression in her real life. Seyfried bears the brunt of the script’s shortcomings and tries hard to visualize the effect of the inner conflict. Since Julie’s character does not do strange things like other psychological works and creates understandable conditions in her hectic life, it can be a relatively different work and acquaint the audience with another side of obsessions and mental disorders.
The following are excerpts from the film’s story
Julie, the author of children’s books, is drowning in darkness despite having a good life and a good career. After giving birth to her child, she experiences postpartum depression and her world is in turmoil. Julie commits suicide with all the love she has for her two children, and she can not get out of the crisis she is in. The film deals with internal conflicts and does not deal much with external nodes. A mouth full of air tries to draw the viewer into her dark world from another angle without engaging the audience with what is happening around and outside the mind.
An airy mouth is unusual for those who have never been in contact with depression, as it puts your film in an intimate setting and creates a graphically rich world of color and light.
An airy mouth is unusual for those who have not been exposed to depression before, as it puts your film in an intimate setting and graphically creates a world full of color and light. There are no cold or soulless locations in this show and the characters are not in a world full of anxiety and darkness. Julie manages her responsibilities well and takes care of her children, she goes to work, tells her stories and has good and sincere relationships with those around her. You see? Everything is great, there is not the slightest bit of doubt or fear, and no sense of depression surrounds the viewer, until Julie intends to end her life with the cutter she makes for her books.
When this character commits the first suicide attempt, the film sets its course and depicts a different world. It is here that the viewer approaches the crisis from a different perspective and realizes that not all the stories and strokes of the disease are to be drawn into the outer world of the crisis-stricken character, as he has seen in other films. A Mouthful Of Air, intends to focus all its attention on Julie’s inner selves and minds, and to let her audience know that depression is on the other side, and that it is only destruction within the sufferer.
A Mouthful Of Air has a definite course of depression and distress for Julie. Obsessive-compulsive disorder has been a constant sight for him since childhood, and he has shown himself to be stronger in the skin of postpartum depression when his son was born. Flashbacks reveal that Julie has had problems with her father in the past, and these troubles go back to her childhood. The film puts Julie in the role of a victim, a kind mother who herself had no role in her depression and still does not want to take medicine for her child and hurt those around her.
The issue of inheritance in mental illness was the film’s beautiful idea, which was easily dispelled and summed up in a few not-so-valuable flashbacks.
The film considers several paths to this crisis, first, it deals with the genetic nature of depression, a gene that has been passed down from father to Julie and has been activated in a tense environment by the way his father treated him. The issue of the inheritance of mental illness was a beautiful idea of the film, which simply disappeared and was summed up in a few not-so-valuable flashbacks. A review of the past that does not contribute much to the development and does not intend to dramatize the genetic problem of depression and thereby capture the audience. These flashbacks give very little information to the audience and can be referred to as a review of Julie’s memories.
A mouth full of air wants to put everything on the neck of the past and put the root of the problems there. But this past, which is spoken by a mouth full of air, has nothing to do with the development of the effect, and the story lacks a strong cause-and-effect relationship. Julie has a disability from a troubled past that has made her environment and heredity sick and caused her to commit suicide in the future. This (past) cause needs to be softened with the audience and placed in the heart of the film, but unfortunately it is abandoned and the play loses an important part of its structure and minimizes its impact, because this type of narrative and structure can not have much impact. On the audience’s feelings, even in a psychological film with internal conflicts. In other words, Julie’s past lacks powerful cinematic information.
Every aspect of the script lacks depth and precision, and there is little payoff for the characters in the film. Julie, the first character with a mouth full of air, had to show more dimensions to her audience and put more powerful things in the plot. The character, who carries half of the drama’s driving force, shows only a glimpse of his disability, and the film fails to put him in the plot and show the angles used by Julie. An airy mouth does not work as a film for a work that is so realistic, and its characters do not express the feeling they need for a real world.

Postpartum depression is an issue that the film wants to reach in the end, but there is no proper payment for it and it does not push itself forward in the plot. The film deals with the three issues of heredity in depression, childhood stress, and postpartum depression, but only gives a superficial cut, and we can not understand exactly what an airy mouth deals with and how it deals with injury. This film is an adaptation, I have not read the story of the original source, but it can be guessed that this lack of impact is due to the weak adaptation and lack of correct summaries. Stories that are mostly based on the mentality and inner workings of his characters will have a long and difficult way to adapt them. A mouth full of air, inner knots and mentalities could not be translated from the form of literature into cinematic and visual language, and for this reason the work reached a fragile structure and the audience fully understands that the film has little to pay for and there are still things that have not happened.
