    Synopsis:

    Based on a true story, Yossi & Jagger portrays the love affair of two Israeli officers in an IDF position on the Israeli-Lebanese border. They are commanders, they are in love, and they try to find a place of their own in an oppressing and rigid system, which sends them to defend a cause they do not necessarily believe in.
    Yossi, the company commander, is an introvert guy and largely a man-of-the-system. Jagger, the platoon commander, is an open and much more liberated guy. He is the star of the company. Yossi is determined to keep their love in secret. Whereas, Jagger, who is about to finish the service, believes that Yossi should leave the army with him. Shortly before departing for a dangerous ambush, the tension between the lovers gets high almost explosive.
    Yossi & Jagger portrays in a courageous, genuine, amusing and sometines painful fashion the complicated and sensative topic of "gays in the military". It also portrays the tragic structure of life of young Israelis today. The film presents an enchanting ensemble of young men and women that were supposed, in this time of their lives, to dance, study and love. Instead, due to the mandatory army service and the complicated situation in the region, they have to devote their most beautiful years to their country, to be soldiers, to kill and get killed.
    In Yossi & Jagger you can find a chef who finds comfort in cooking a gourmet cuisine, a soldier who believes in reincarnation, and two young women who try to survive in a men's world. By showing the apparently small details of the commanders' and soldiers' lives, the film creators emphasize the distorted situation in which these men and women are forced to live and die.

    I rented this Sat. night at Blockbuster. It's got subtitles, but it's all in all a very good movie and a bit of a tear-jerker. :wtc:

    Wouldn't it shrink in the snow? Or is that the fake stuff?

    that's real stuff.

    And, theoretically it should shrink... but it didn't seem like it affected either Yossi or Jagger.

    They must have kept it well insulated.

    ...my kind of man!



    I once had a mini-affair with a friends roommate in college. He had the most wonderful body hair. I wonder what ever happened to him after I turned him out... (short story=> he freaked out because of his family || Long story short=> so hot, and so sultry, our relationship was engulfed by more than the flames and heat our bodies made...)

    I'll have to agree with Chris on this one...it was just OK, and a bit predictable.

    I will say this though; There are plenty of aspects to this movie I can relate to, such as wanting to sleep with only people I love/running away to a foreign country with the one I love to start a new life/having to hide certain emotions...

    I mean, in the end, I can honestly say an hour passed by, and I was not emotionally affected in any way. But it's a very interesting take on the possibilities of love, and those who can display or not publically display it, such as in an army, or in this case, the IDF.

    A bit more sex and nudity would have made this movie a bit steamier, though that snow scene in the begining was done VERY well. I could almost relate to the "rush"...

    Yeah, just an ok movie, but see it if you get the chance!
