New Scandinavian Cinema: VIRGIN MOUNTAIN

VIRGIN MOUNTAIN

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. (94 min.)

VIRGIN MOUNTAIN screens Tuesday, October 27 at 7pm in our Whitsell Auditorium (located in the Portland Art Museum). The film is showing as part of our New Scandinavian Cinema series.

Tickets are available online or at the door.
