Dan Fainaru hjá Screen International skrifar umsögn um Fúsa Dags Kára sem frumsýnd er á yfirstandandi Berlínarhátíð og er mjög sáttur.
Fainaru skrifar meðal annars:
…endearing, tender romantic comedy, a belated coming-of-age story sensitively told, with just the right touch of melancholy shades to make it all the more plausible, unerringly avoiding all the pitfalls Hollywood would love to fall into, in similar occasions.
Dagur Kari, true to his own brand of humour, keeps it all simple and straightforward. Emotions are suggested rather than declared, the characters, the background and – most importantly – the unobtrusive choice of camera angles and direction allow the story to flow freely, naturally and credibly ahead. Gunnar Jonsson’s Fusi can’t take a wrong step if he tried to – he part seems tailor-made for him, his performance conveying, without any apparent effort, all the gamut of emotions that takes him across the border separating belated adolescence and early maturity. Ilmur Kristjansdottir’s Sjofn may be a smaller part but she handles it with aplomb and this goes for the rest of the cast as well.
