Critic Reviews for Mug (Twarz)

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

"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?

February 24, 2018 | Full Review…

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

February 23, 2018 | Full Review…

A potent slice of sacrilegious daring, which allows a true sense of humanity to bleed into focus.

August 27, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Following in a fine tradition of 'the grotesque' stretching back into fairy tale, Jacek may face physical deformity ... but he remains a warm and upbeat character, while the moral ugliness of those around him ... is accentuated in relief.

August 14, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

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.

February 23, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Offers a caustic report on the state of modern Poland but is equally approachable by any audience looking for some bitter truths about what lies behind the surface of a carefully manufactured image.
