Reviews

Yossi, a gay man living a solitary existence in Tel Aviv is a perennially sad, workaholic doctor. His mundane routine is shaken when a blast from his past sets him on a journey of self discovery.

Their brief but emotionally charged reunion unnerves Yossi enough to make him spontaneously leave Tel Aviv. It is only then, on the desolate roads of southern Israel, that an encounter with a group of lively young soldiers ignites Yossi's desire. Especially when Tom (the handsome Oz Zehavi) shows an interest in him.

Heart-warming and sensual, YOSSI is an ode to love lost and love found, in situations where we least expect to find them so.

Returning to the role that won him TFF's Best Actor award in Eytan Fox's Yossi & Jagger in 2003, Ohad Knoller (Munich, Yossi & Jagger) gives another extraordinary performance as Yossi.

Format: DVD
This is quite a rare film in itself - a follow up to the much acclaimed `Yossi and Jagger'. This scenario is set 10 years after the death of Jagger. 10 years in which Yossi has refused to mourn or move on. In fact he has learned nothing from his relationship with Jagger in that he has remained closeted despite hints from his doctor colleagues that they suspect he may be gay. He has `let himself go' largely because he drowns himself in his work to the neglect of everything else. And then he meets Jagger's mother in the hospital. He claims not to know her but the meeting awakes something deep inside him that has to be released or it will kill him. He goes to meet the family of his former lover to reveal their son's relationship with him in the army all that time ago. In revealing their son's sexuality he effectively comes out to them and himself at the same time. It is clear that he has never healed from the death. Jagger's family are none too impressed with Yossi or his revelation.

He has remained stunted all these years even though his career as a doctor has developed in leaps and bounds. He is still the same closeted gay man he was 10 years ago but in worse shape because he no longer has Jagger to hold a mirror up to him or dilute his pompousness. He is forced to take holiday leave against his better judgement and it is a chance meeting with some soldiers on leave that brings him back to the one time he was happy with Jagger. He doubts he will ever get the opportunity to relive those happy times.

Don't expect anything dramatic. The film is sincere and focuses on Yossi's emotional development. It is well crafted and if you liked the original Yossi and Jagger film then you have to see this. You would be depriving yourself if you didn't.

What a beautiful uplifting film to make you laugh out loud and to cry . Another israeli classic . Yossi has been hiding behind his job and sitting at home on the couch with a tv snack . A chance meeting with his late lovers mother changes every thing and he decides to live life again . I hadnt seen the first film but loved this feel good movie from start to finish . It rather reminded me of the warm of a movie such as sideways and I dont think either the sub titles or seeing it as just another gay trauma movie should but you off . This is quality drama that should be enjoyed by all . Such an antidote to all the american rubbish .

Yossi is still haunted by the death of Jagger, who was the love of his life. He seems unable to start a new relationship as he cannot forget Jagger. One day he happens to meet a young soldier,Tom, who shows an interest in him. Will Yossi finally have the courage to share his life with another man?

This is a very well-made and moving film and the acting is most of the time superb. It is one of my favourite films. I do recommend the films "The Bubble" and "Jossi and Jagger", also with the excellent actor Ohad Knoller.

I can add very little to the reviews already written except to add what I found most touching and moving about this film was it's treatment of the central charcahters journey from post traumatic anguish at his lovers death, through to the chathartic meeting with his deceased partners parents, and the evolving relationship with a young, attractive Israeli Soldier, with whom he may have found love, was handled in such a natural, observational, spontaneous fashion. What emerges is a portrait of a vulnerable, lonely, grieving mans journey back into the stream of life, and arms of love.

This could be a film of any man suffering a midlife crisis, tentatively reaching out from a protective shell, needing to engage again with people who he is unsure and insecure with, aching for affection and self affirmation, whether he be straight or gay. Ohad Knoller's beautifully empathetic, restrained, multi layered performance, reaches beneath the skin to flesh out an all too beleiveable and humanly frail man, and Oz Zehavi is truly poignant, charismatic, and adorable as the young soldier who gives courage to a shy heart, and heals the wounds of a damaged soul.

This is what gay cinema should be, a story of two human beings, two people finding love, the fact they are both men in no way diminishes the truth or quality of their relationship. A wonderful film I will be watching again soon.

Format: DVD
Yossi is a bit disappointing, in spite of the genial presence of Ohad Knoller and the appealing faces on the box. It tells the story of a closeted hospital doctor who leaves Tel Aviv spontaneously and goes to a holiday resort where he meets some soldiers, and particularly one with whom he starts a romance. For some reason it fails to come to life, and I kept wondering what it was trying to show. Nothing was interesting enough, and the settings lacked magic. The early part of the film, where he hooks up with a very conceited stranger for sex, and then visits the parents of his lover from Yossi and Jagger for a painful revelation of the truth, gives no pleasure, nor does the section in the hospital at the start. Apparently there was no script, which may account for its sense of randomness. The same feeling dominates in Time Off, a 43-minute short which seems far too long, showing how an amiable army recruit, who may be gay, sees his `superior' having gay sex in a toilet. Nothing is said and most of the film details the unit doing manoeuvres and then stopping off in Tel Aviv, where this incident occurs. Little touches of solidarity between people we hardly have any sense of do not compensate, and don't quite seem real in any case. It's probably for those who loved Yossi and Jagger only, being like a re-run only less interesting.
