Mug / Twarz
Małgorzata Szumowska | Poland | 2018 | 91m | 15 | Polish with English subtitles

MugCarefree metalhead Jacek is engaged to beautiful Dagmara and working construction on what is supposed to be the world’s tallest statue of Jesus when a shocking accident completely changes his life. Małgorzata Szumowska provides a powerful indictment of provincial Poland’s hypocrisy, prejudice and fear of difference in this tragicomedy, as Jacek’s face transplant brings out the worst in his small-town neighbours.

"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" The Guardian.
