Before the gay cowboys and the gay surfers there were gay soldiers...

Yes, I watched it back in 2006.

It's good, not great, although as I recall, it had a very hot kiss at the beginning. It takes place in Israel and is in Hebrew with subtitles. It is just about an hour long.

And I understand it is a true story. I saw it in 2006 after Eric recommended it. Just heart breaking.

I need to see it on a normal screen to appreciate the small details, but I just loved the entire movie, found the ending heartbreaking, also when Yossi is at Jagger's mother's house and Yaeli is telling her that she was planning to ask him out and Yossi just sits there and is the only one able to answer that one question about Jagger.  :'(

Yes yes! Quite some time ago. I have had the DVD for a while. I love what Eytan Fox does! "Yossi & Jagger" is indeed based on a true story. The two leads are fantastic - imho. I have been strangely attracted to the Hebrew language for 10+ years now and find it very sexy!  ;D Anyhow, I even lent the DVD to my Arabic teacher last year. He preferred "Bubble" by the same director.

I want it on DVD too, I saw it on Youtube bad quality and all, and I want to see it again to really appreciate it and the heartwrenching ending.

We were discussing this on ennisjack the other day, that at least he got to die in his lover's arms and heard those words he was longing for. Jack never got that privilege....
