I Want You


Time Out says

This seems to be aiming at obsessive noir romance - though these things play better in San Francisco or New York than in pointedly fictional English seaside resorts. Martin (Nivola) returns home after serving nine years for murder. Violating the conditions of his parole, he begins to stalk his old girlfriend Helen (Weisz), unaware that she's under the surveillance of a mute refugee, Honda (Petrusic), who lives on the beach with his older sister, Smokey (Mitevska). For light relief, Martin pays a local prostitute to strip to Elvis Costello's 'I Want You'. The script is too thinly plotted to support the levels of enigma, alienation and abstraction piled on top.
