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



The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
