Critic Reviews for Yossi & Jagger
It's too lean to deserve marquee billing.
A searing, tense and beautifully told film.
Levi and Knoller are so natural, so unconcerned with mugging for the camera, that what could have been a corny love story on paper is utterly sincere and touching on screen.
Nothing happens in Yossi & Jagger that you couldn't have seen coming toward you in a fog. There are coincidences, hurt feelings, and more -- but what the movie lacks in ambition, originality, and grit, it makes up for in pure feeling.
Runs a brisk 67 minutes, and cost a remarkable $200,000, yet it boasts more heart and humanity than megaproductions.
Audience Reviews for Yossi & Jagger
An inept romance that mistakes amateurish for naturalistic, looking like a cheap movie made for TV and with actors who are below the level of mediocre - and it works better when focusing on the daily life of the soldiers than on a corny gay love story that goes nowhere.
This Israeli film has got all the love and charms you need to feel good when you are down. Set in the Isreali Defense Force, you've got two soldiers that are closeted homosexuals that cannot express their love to each other, on top of this, the hardship of war made their situation even tougher. It's a cute independent drama that features adequate acting and a bitter sweet ending.
