Trivia

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.

An ironic movie packed both with serious and fun moments
25 March 2018 | by audrulyteSee all my reviews

Just saw this movie in a film festival and loved it. Story is simple - a metalist named Jacek from small Polish town gets hurt while building the Jesus Christ's statue, and is so much deformed in face area that he gets a full face transplant from a donor. The rest of the story is an intentionally stereotype ridden journey of how Jacek copes with his new reality as well as how people around him cope with this new unrecognizible Jacek. There is a full load of stereotypes in this movie, but all of them are intentional and meant to strenghten the effect of pun intended, making for a great ironic look at people with all their strenghts and weaknesses when faced with the unwanted change.
