Jeffrey moves into an apartment in the same building with his frustratingly distant quasi-lover René, hoping to find out what's up with the boyf. He discovers rotting floorboards, clearly a metaphor for something not quite right with the whole building. His relationship with the landlady and the super gets stranger and stranger, and eventually violent. The festival program describes You Belong to Me as "Hitchcockian" and "a dark thriller"; I should've paid more attention to those warning signs that I would not like this film. I can't recommend this film, although mainly because I don't like the entire genre in which it is placed.
