Critic Reviews for Fugue (Fuga)

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (3)

  • Someone with amnesia discovering dark secrets must be one of the corniest cinematic clichés going, but Polish-set co-production Fugue manages to torque this material in a newish direction.

  • Its controlled expansiveness of tone, psychology and camera mark its helmer - invaluably aided by writer-star Gabriela Muskała - as a stylist of considerable, unpredictable finesse.

  • As compelling as it is to watch this splintered family grapple with the futility of trying to retrace their steps... the film has so little faith in the process that it can only trudge forward until it's time to admit defeat.

  • Actress Gabriela Muskala who also wrote the script delivers a tense, seething central performance as the woman who rises from the dead.

    May 22, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Muskala [provides] them all a second chance. Whether it's one that finds them together or apart shouldn't matter as long as they work towards the happiness that eluded them.

    May 11, 2019 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…
  • Following the musical mermaid coming-of-age parable The Lure (2015), Smoczyńska's second full-length film also focuses on alienated female experience, while this time around preferring a mode of slowly unfolding human mystery to piled-on oddities.
