Synopsis / Plot
Giovanna starts to care for a Jewish Holocaust survivor her husband brings home. Trapped in a decaying marriage, she begins to reflect on her life, and suddenly begins to take note of a man who lives across from her. Ferzan Ozpetek's carefully constructed Facing Window looks at how troublesome, seemingly random incidents in the present can have unexpected links to the past – and to memories of events that have been suppressed and almost forgotten. Combining elements of mystery, love story and historical rumination, Facing Window is about finding and fulfilling one's destiny.
