Yossi & Jagger

Yossi & Jagger

Israel, 2002, 65 Minute Running Time
Genre/Subjects: Drama, GLBT, Romance, War
Language: Hebrew English Sub-Titles

The pressures and privations of military life have rarely been portrayed in as much telling detail as they are in Yossi & Jagger, Eytan Fox's compact beautifully acted portrait of a group of bored Israeli soldiers stationed at a cramped army base on the Israeli-Lebanese border. In this desolate environment romance has flowered between Yossi (Ohad Knoller) and Jagger (Yehuda Levi) soldiers carrying on a discreet, conflict-ridden love affair. The tensions at the base intensify with the arrival of two female soldiers, one of whom fancies herself in love with Jagger. If the situation has all the ingredients for a shrill, tearful melodrama, the taut screenplay by Avner Bernheimer keeps the lid on: a subtle and superbly realized miniature.

Screenwriter: Avner Bernheimer
Principal Cast: Ohad Knoller, Yehuda Levi, Assi Cohen
