Iceland 2015 94 mins.

Fúsi is a mammoth of a man who, at 43 years of age, is still living at home with his mother. Shy and awkward, he hasn’t quite learned how to socialize with others, leaving him an untouchable virgin. That is, until his family pushes him to join a dance class. There he meets the equally innocent but playful Sjöfn. Acclaimed Icelandic writer-director Dagu Kári introduces us to the pains of first love between these two late-blooming loners with subtly and wicked wit. Winner of the Best World Narrative Award, Tribeca Film Festival.

Genres: Drama, Romance

Appears in: New Scandinavian Cinema
