Reviews:

“The Manichæan battle of good versus bad, with a very simplified plot. The didactic message of tolerance and diversity. A child’s adventure: pirate clothes, slingshots and swords. And as such it’s more likely to rivet and enthral little human beings. Those under 12 years of age will likely holler as our four juvenile heroes contend with the malevolent adults attempting to kill them. Grown-ups less so, even if the movie is still enjoyable enough to watch.” Dirty Movies

“On the one hand, a parable of corporate greed and exploitation, and of society’s treatment of the disabled or “deficient”, and on the other a story of the way we all reinvent ourselves precisely through story, Girl With No Mouth‘s narrative is so successfully reimagined by its child characters that it is practically a children’s film.” Eye for Film

” …held my interest and I found a lot to enjoy about it. But at the same time, I could also see where it limits and undercuts itself. Girl with No Mouth probably would have been better as either a full-on kids film or a darker, more adult tale. Given the age of its leads, a kids’ version would probably have worked best.” Voices from the Balcony
