Heavy rocker in giant Jesus accident

Heavy metal enthusiast and small town rebel Jacek loves his dog, his girlfriend and riding around in his car. But when he falls victim to a nasty accident while working on the construction of the world’s biggest Jesus statue, his life takes a drastic turn. With her seventh feature, Malgorzata Szumowska has constructed a subtly satirical fable about modern-day Poland and its way of dealing with economic and social crises. But MUG is also a sensitive and oddly gripping drama about how our perception of others depends on outer rather than inner qualities.
