"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?

Top Critic

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.

Mug is uninspired and forgettable.

Using a lot of black humor, Szumowska makes the pill more digestible because, although localism is very marked at times, the message and spirit of the film are easily extrapolated to any country in Europe. [Full Review in Spanish]

Mug throws his darts in quite linear and obvious directions, but Szumowska continues to refine his incisive gaze with effective styling solutions. [Full Review in Spanish]
