Product Description

Ten years after YOSSI & JAGGER, the tragic love story of two men serving in the Israel Defense Forces who fall in love, director Eytan Fox returns to find out what has happened with Yossi. Dr. Yossi Hoffman has become a valued and dedicated cardiologist, often using his work as a way to escape from dealing with his anguished life. He lives alone, still closeted, unable to break through the walls and defenses built around him since the death of his lover. Even his co-workers a recently divorced doctor, who tries to sweep Yossi into his world of women and drugs, and a lonely nurse, who is secretly in love with him find it almost impossible to get close to him. His daily routine at the hospital is shaken up by the arrival of a mysterious woman. He follows her, and through the surprising connection they make, receives a rare opportunity to deal with his trauma. Yossi then travels to the southern city of Eilat. Surrounded by the sea and sand dunes, he meets a group of young Israeli officers, among them Tom, a handsome and self confident openly gay man, who represents a new world, different from the one that shaped Yossi.

Very good acting by all characters.
Ronald L. Horn
Story about a man who lost the love of his life, begins to circle the drain and is shown how to live again by an unexpected person.
Keith Wilkins
This film can be the only film in existence in which the director has caused his character to close up to the audience also.

What a difference ten years can make! Director Eytan Fox and star Ohad Knoller return to catch up with the titular character Yossi from their powerfully understated 2002 film "Yossi and Jagger." Simply and appropriately titled "Yossi," this sequel-of-sorts is really an entirely different beast. The original film was not just a love story, but a look into the workings and relationships within a small Israeli army outpost. It had an almost documentary feel, a voyeuristic fly-on-the-wall vibe in which you learned about camp life by catching brief exchanges and small moments between all of the characters. In that way, it had a daring simplicity in style (and was not, perhaps, the movie that some people might have wanted). I, personally, think these choices made the film a great and challenging experience. The Yossi and Jagger pairing was woven into a much larger tapestry. So when the movie turned its focus on their fate, it was all the more real and devastating. "Yossi," set exactly ten years later, might aptly be described as a more conventional character study. It is all about Yossi, so Knoller is front and center for every scene.

We quickly learn that immediately after leaving the army, Yossi decided to study medicine. Now a weary and isolated doctor, he still seems haunted by past events and lost love. He has shut himself off from experiencing emotional vulnerability, and even life itself. The first half of the film highlights the mundane existence he has created by continuing to act as others expect him to. He's in the closet at work, and is distant to the two people who want to get closer to him. One day, he notices a waiting patient. It is Jagger's mother. And seeing her seems to awaken an uncertainty in Yossi.

For all of those who saw and were deeply touched by the 2002 Eytan Fox film, YOSSI & JAGGER, this sequel simply titled YOSSI will resurface all manner of fine memories of the original. Not only is this a fine follow-up film, a glance back at a gay love affair the took place in the Israeli Army that ended in the death of one of the lovers, it offers a story of the healing of grieving as well as the dramatic changes that have taken place in Israel concerning the current acceptance of gay men serving opening in the military. Times are changing, at last.

In the ten years since Dr. Yossi Guttman (the sensitive actor Ohad Knoller recreating his original role) lost his lover in the war while fighting he has become an honored but overworked cardiologist, living alone, having gained weight, and his only social life is connecting with same sex dates on the Internet. One of his dates (who responded to an earlier photo of Yossi) is Yariv (Gil Desiano), a young hunk who when Yossi comes to Yariv's house shows disdain for Yossi's misrepresenting himself and settles for a quickie just to get Yossi to leave. Yossi's other 'social life' comes from the nurse Lea (Nuria Lusinzky) who has a crush on him and makes advances that Yossi rebuffs. After a minor error in the OR Yossi's fellow doctors insist he take a vacation to recuperate his exhaustion. Yossi sees a woman in the admitting area, recognizes her as Jagger's mother Varda (Orly Silbersatz), does her echo cardiogram, and subsequently drives her home (Varda does not know Yossi).

Anyone who has suffered the sort of loss that Yossi has will "get" this movie. Yossi's day-to-day grind with nothing to look forward to, his allowing himself to go to seed, his belief that no one could love him again, his fear that if he comes out of his shell or comes out of the closet, he will be scorned by his friends and co-workers -- all these suggest that he's defeated from the start. But he's not. There's a small flame burning, and this movie follows his painful progression. Yossi reaches an important milestone when he makes contact with Jagger's parents and confesses to them his love for Jagger and the truth of their relationship, something Jagger himself would have done had he lived. This marks the moment of Yossi's actual coming out with mixed results -- Jagger's mother rejects, Jagger's father innately understands. From then on, the changes occurring inside Yossi speed up until he's able to respond to a younger "out" soldier who sees in him the value he is unable to see in himself. Eytan Fox's direction is flawless, as usual. Ohad Knoller gives a heart-breaking performance as Yossi, and Oz Zehavi is charming as the young soldier who could bring "joie de vivre" back into anyone's life.

YOSSI (Dir. Eytan Fox, 2012, 85 minutes, Hebrew, English subtitles) is the 10-year-later sequel to the bittersweet Yossi & Jagger (2002), a gay love story involving a unit commander and a soldier under his command. Which, by the way, I have always wanted to see but haven't yet.

YOSSI, though, is a film I LOVED. Some may say it's boring, too short, drags too much - I disagree but I can understand some bored reactions.

Here, Dr. Yossi Guttman (Ohad Knoller, who bears a resemblance to Russell Crowe) - now a renowned cardiologist - still struggles with his grief, his post traumatic stress and the even worse hell of a love lost. After struggling at work, overweight, alone and horribly sad, the day comes when Dr. Guttman is responsible for a patient's death - or at least he thinks he's responsible. That is the day he takes off for a vacation.

It's not as though he completely gave up: his attempt to hook up with a hot guy and his equally earnest chasing of the past by following his deceased boyfriend's mother all prove he's trying to kick-start his heart. But this cardiologist, who saves lives to compensate for the one that really mattered, cannot repair his own heart.

And vacation day is the day he meets the beautiful, young gay Israeli soldier Tom (a stunning dessert by the name of Oz Zehavi, who looks a bit like Ryan Phillippe). Tom takes an instant, powerful liking to Dr. Guttman, and part of the deeply enjoyable drama plus humor here is watching Tom flirt with the good doctor while the doctor takes an instant shine to Tom as well. Only the doctor is not quite certain what he should do, or how to do it!
