NARRATIVE FEATURE | 83 MIN | 2012

YOSSI

Returning to the role that won him TFF's Best Actor award in Eytan Fox's Yossi & Jagger in 2003, Ohad Knoller gives another extraordinary performance as Yossi, a closeted gay man living a solitary existence in Tel Aviv. A perennially sad, workaholic doctor, Yossi has his quiet world shaken when a middle-aged woman walks out of his past and into his examination room. Their brief but emotionally charged reunion unnerves Yossi enough to make him spontaneously leave Tel Aviv. On the desolate roads of southern Israel, a chance encounter with a group of lively soldiers ignites Yossi's desire to awaken from his emotional slumber.

Fox directs with unmatched honesty and compassion, drawing the viewer ever-so-gently into Yossi's disconnected world. Stark images of city life eventually give way to rolling road trip beauty, perfectly attuned to Yossi's experience. Knoller's remarkably nuanced performance is filled with delicate emotion that subtly shifts as Yossi's world begins to crack open, leaving an indelible impression. Yossi is a moving film about making peace with the past in order to make way for the future.
