Jacek’s life is thrown wildly off course by a terrible work accident that leaves him completely disfigured. Eagerly followed by the Polish media, he becomes the first person in the country to receive a face transplant. Though he may be celebrated as a national hero and martyr, he no longer recognizes himself in the mirror.

WHAT ARE CRITICS SAYING?

80

Screen International by Allan Hunter

As free-wheeling as a Preston Sturges farce, the handsome-looking Mug feels scattershot at times but it does convey the sense of a Poland racing towards hell in a hand cart.

Variety by Jessica Kiang

Szumowska...wants to tackle manifold issues, often unrelated to each other, and her attention feels magpie-ish and unsettled.

The Guardian by Peter Bradshaw

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.
