Jupiter's Moon (15)

Drama, Sci-Fi

Aryan is a Syrian refugee trying to make his way into Hungary from Serbia, along with his father and many other wretched souls. They are all caught, and find themselves in a web of cynicism and corruption.

The critical consensus

Endlessly provocative and strikingly well made, Jupiter's Moon is undoubtedly a bit of a muddle. Although overstuffed with ideas and too long, its scope and verve are often bracing.

***(*)(*)Allan Hunter, The List, 01/01/2018

The brilliant Hungarian director Kornel Mundruczo’s latest feature sits uncomfortably between political allegory and thriller.

***(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 04/01/2018

Interesting for about 30 minutes, but swiftly falls to pieces.
