As thoughtful and sensitive as "Yossi" is when it comes to observing the long term grieving process, it also proves that sometimes too much understatement can actually work against a movie, too. That's not to mention one of the central plot points is a little too convenient for words.(Although, maybe as one character points out, there really are very few good cardiologists in Israel.) On the plus side, the movie ends on a high note, ten minutes before it would have become completely unbearable.
I have to say it's one of the most touching stories I've experienced via NetFlix. Yossi's character resonated so strongly with me, that it put me in deep thought, and made me appreciate lost loves even more.
This movie comes highly recommended, because it dives head first into the anguish of having a lost love that you just cannot share with anyone else. I admit it...I cried.
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.
there was a tenderness somewhere in there that didn't nauseate.
