Lovely Yossi

Yossi, Eytan Fox’s follow-up to Yossi & Jagger, plays at TIFF until March 28. The ending is pure wish fulfillment, but the rest of the flick – grief stricken closet case emerges from his shell under the tender tutelage of a surprisingly sympathetic junior – is undeniably touching and more to the point visually erotic. Who knew Israel was this beautiful? And sunny. And hot.
