Nordic Nights – Fúsi (Virgin Mountain)
February 28, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
FILM: VIRGIN MOUNTAIN (Fúsi) 1 hr. 34 min. Icelandic, English subtitles
Director Dagur Kári Starring Gunnar Jónsson, Ilmur Kristjánsdóttir Icelandic with 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
