  • National disdain has clouded judgement, and so both director and community have let their constructions get out of hand.

  • "Mug" works hard to be a fable about inner strength and beauty. But did everyone else have to come off as quite so foolish and ugly?

  • Mug is a strange, engaging film - well and potently acted and directed, a drama that puts you inside its extended community with a mix of robust realism and a streak of fantasy comedy.

  • This study in weathering adversity and adjusting to what life hands you makes some worthy points about human and institutional callousness.

  • Director Malgorzata Szumowska starts her film with a fantastic depiction of human greed, and it's a scene which is both hilariously funny and very disturbing. It sets the tone of the film marvellously.
