Graham's Review of Yossi

  • 11 months ago via Rotten Tomatoes

    Yossi (2013)

    Picking up 10 years after Yossi & Jagger, this tells the story of Yossi who has become a doctor after leaving the army. He is still fraught with the memories of his tragic affair 10 years later.
    This is an amazing pick-up from the good, but far too condensed original and makes up for the haphazard storytelling of it. It's a beautiful tale that throws Yossi through the gamete of emotions and is fraught with sexual tension.
    Ohad Knoller is par excellence in his continued portrayal of Yossi. The supporting cast is fine, but it truly is poor, sad Yossi who you long to be happy for throughout. I do love an ambiguous ending and I hope this becomes the Israeli Before trilogy.
