Throughout "Mug," the images appear sharp in the middle, diffused at the edges, the focus mimicking the limits of a human eye. "What we wanted to do is a kind of deformation of the world; he's deformed, and the world around him is deformed," director Malgorzata Szumowska said of the film's unusual lensing, which she conceptualized with cinematographer and co-writer Michal Englert.

cheap tricks and superficial stereotypes
I can't understand how a movie using so cheap tearjerking tricks and superficial, false stereotypes attracts so much admiration. It would fit well as a manifesto made in 1960's by some political activists,but now, 50 years later? "evil village community vs poor frankenstein monster", again... really? This movie is blunt moral preaching, not much more.
