dan's rating of the film Mug

"Mug" depicts a local community entrenched in narrow-mindness and racism. (it reminds me of Vargas Llosa's communities) There is a large gap between the invoked religion and the acts of the people. It's a world where superficiality dominates. The accident makes the protagonist experience the prejudices first hand.
