Israeli gay army love story sequel released

The sequel of Yossi and Jagger, the landmark 2002 film about the love between two male soldiers, has been released to glowing reviews from the Israeli press.

The original stunned audiences with its honest and tragic portrayal of lonely soldiers in love at the Israel-Lebanon border.

The sequel Yossi’s Story with deal with the survivor’s life after his lover was killed at a night-time ambush.

Director Eytan Fox said he wanted to portray a ‘new Israel’, and the sequel will include a new young soldier who is completely at ease with being gay.

He said the character will try to tell him not only has the ‘country changed’, but the ‘world has changed’.

Ohad Knoller will reprise the role that won him the Tribeca Film Festival’s Best Actor Award a decade ago.

He told Talking Movies: ‘What I looked for is a hidden motivation, something that is inside and will burn all the time. The image was, I’m in jail, and I want to get out, I don’t know what to do. There’s even no warden to speak with.’

Homosexuals have been allowed to serve openly in the Israeli army since 2003.

An image of two male soldiers holding hands while walking down a street in uniform was posted on the Israel Defence Forces Facebook page.

The caption read: ‘It’s pride month. Did you know that the IDF treats all of its soldiers equally?’



Are there any public figures that you're ashamed to admit you're attracted to?
