Gay army love story sequel shows 'new Israel'


Ten years after Yossi and Jagger, director Eytan Fox is releasing a sequel to his study of a gay romance in the Israeli army.

Actor Ohad Knoller says he used the idea of being trapped in prison as his motivation.

But director Fox says he wanted to portray "the new Israel", and what has changed in the country over the last decade.

Talking Movies' Tom Brook reports.

Talking Movies is broadcast on BBC World News on Saturday at 13:30 GMT and is repeated on Sunday at 00:30, 07:30 and 20:30 BST.
