Winner of 9 international film festivals including “BEST ACTOR” AND “BEST FILM

“If the situation has all the ingredients of a shrill, tearful melodrama, the filmmaker, working from a taut screenplay by Avner Bernheimer that doesn't waste a word or a gesture, keeps the emotional lid firmly in place.”
   The New York Times

“Enlivened by journalist Avner Bernheimer's delicately witty script and some lively ensemble performances under the direction of Eytan Fox, the film offers a haunting portrait of a generation forced to risk their lives in the service of military goals they're far from totally committed to.”
L.A. Weekly

“What the movie lacks in ambition, originality, and grit, it makes up for in pure feeling.”
Boston Globe

Reviews

  1. :

    The film is a love story, personal priorities, about opportunities, only marginally about war – but very much about time being wasted. It is not about homophobia faced triumphantly or otherwise. Yossi & Jagger’s characters are discreet by force of circumstance, but one suspects a heterosexual couple would also be. They are in the army, and fighting in a war zone after all. Yossi very much wants to focus on that for the time being. Jagger wants to make plans for the future and for him the future can’t come soon enough.
    I won’t spoil the ending for anyone who hasn’t seen this gem of a movie yet (do it now!) except to say that even there I was not sure of my emotions by the times the end credits started rolling.
    I would have liked more scenes with… everyone, actually. Don’t get me wrong, there’s depth and development and insight. But I became so fond of this film. One of the all-time greats.
