Yossi & Jagger
Our next Rialto Recommends is acclaimed filmmaker Eytan Fox's 2003 US release YOSSI & JAGGER. Romance blooms between two soldiers (Knoller, Levi) stationed in an Israeli outpost on the Lebanese border. The New York Times said "An unusually subtle and convincing study of group psychology and fluctuating morale among professionals under stress in close quarters." The Washington Post wrote "Although the movie is less than 70 minutes long, there's something direct and compelling about it." YOSSI & JAGGER is available to rent for a modest fee from Amazon.
