Yossi (Israel, 2012)
הסיפור של יוסי
dir. Eytan Fox איתן פוקס
The film is a sequel to the earlier Yossi & Jagger (Israel, 2002) and spends a lot of time referring to the experience of a previous love between two soldiers. The principal, now a cardiologist, closeted and unhappy, by chance meets a soldier during a trip to Eilat and a relationship develops. It is a sentimental story that does little to explain the attraction of the older man to the gorgeous youth played by Oz Zehavi.
I saw the film at TIFF Bell Lightbox, 30 March 2013.
