Nordic Nights – Fúsi (Virgin Mountain)

FILM:  VIRGIN MOUNTAIN   (Fúsi)   1 hr. 34 min.  Icelandic, English subtitles

WHEN:   Tuesday, February 28    Doors open 6, film at 6.30
 
Fusi, the hero of Icelandic director Dagur Kari’s fourth feature, is, to quote the cliche, a mountain of a man. Indeed, he is the Virgin Mountain of the title: Fat, 43 and still living with his mother, he incarnates the sad-sack sweet guy for which Ernest Borgnine’s Marty could serve as the prototype. Working in small, skillfully nuanced, always surprising 
increments, Kari, enabled by Gunnar Jonsson’s extraordinary performance, charts a moving, totally believable flowering of untapped potential as Fusi falls in love. Winner of the top prize and an acting award at Tribeca
