Yes it can, but you can expect to have a high percentage of out of focus
shots. That is just the nature of lenses like the Noctilux or the 75mm
Summilux, where depth of field at maximum aperture at a distance
suitable for a portrait is measured in mm. If you focus on a person's
eyes, for example, the slightest movement of the head will render the
image out of focus.
