First good movie I have seen in 1999
27 March 1999 | by (Ankara, Turkey) – See all my reviews

Finally some movie with an ambition. After a long period of action packed trash, somebody though of bringing us some food for soul.

I must admit I am impressed. The atmosphere of I WANT YOU, the cinematography and feeling of dirtyness of human behaviours overcame me.

I believe that I WANT YOU somehow reminds of Kieslowki's SHORT FILM ABOUT LOVE but gets deeper into the area of human senses and perception of reality.

A must see for everyone who likes movies with soul.
