Eytan Fox’s gay-themed drama Yossi is a an emotional story of starting to find one’s way back after losing a love – something to which everyone, gay or straight, should be able to relate to. The new film takes place ten years after the tragic events of Fox’s earlier Yossi And Jagger, an international hit film from 2003 about Yossi, an Israeli commander whose secret gay lover Levi is killed during a raid on Lebanon. A decade later Yossi (again played by Ohad Knoller) is still suffering over the death of Levi, remains closeted (just as he was as a soldier) and appears to have few, if any friends. Now chubby and unshaven, he’s become a respected cardiologist. He spends a lot of time at the hospital where he works avoiding the wasted sexual advances of a clueless female colleague and even more time at home trolling gay porn and hook up sites. »
