Time Out New York Critics' Pick YOSSI is the sequel to "Yossi and Jagger" by cult gay director Eytan Fox. The story picks up on workaholic doctor Yossi, who is caught in a cycle of grief after having lost his partner 10 years ago. "Ten years after his gay wartime love story "Yossi & Jagger," writer-director Eytan Fox returns to the tale of the film’s survivor, YOSSI, now a workaholic cardiologist in Tel Aviv who has shut himself off after Jagger’s death. This kinder, gentler pic, lifted out of the combat zone and placed in a more gay-tolerant context, generates tension through the subtle juxtaposition of mise-en-scene and Ohad Knoller’s nuanced performance as a man caught between the safety of withdrawal and the temptation of connection. Warm, generous pic’s appeal extends beyond targeted gay and Jewish auds." (Variety)
