Cineforum Italiano: La finestra di fronte (Facing Windows)

Ciao a Tutti! The November film was nominated for 14 David di Donatello awards and won five times including Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Actress and Best Music. Following the film we'll have a reception with cupcakes.
Titolo originale: La finestra di fronte
Regia: Ferzan Ozpetek
Anno: 2003
Durata: 106 minuti
Genere: drammatico/romantico
Attori: Giovanna Mezzogiorno (Giovanna), Massimo Girotti (Davide), Raoul Bova (Lorenzo), Filippo Nigro (Filippo), Serra Yilmaz (Emine)
Lingua: In Italian with English subtitles
Synopsis: Young married couple Giovanna (Giovanna Mezzogiorno) and Filippo (Filippo Nigro) have been married long enough to have become almost completely jaded by their lots in life, with most of their individual aspirations having been set aside some time ago. As their marriage begins to fall apart, the two encounter a strange old man (Massimo Girotti) who calls himself Simone since he can't seem to recall his real name or much about his past history. Filippo brings the man home to stay with them, which initially irritates Giovanna. Over time, she gradually befriends the confused old man and eventually notices a tattoo on his arm indicative of his being a WWII Holocaust survivor. Taking "Simone" to an old Roman ghetto, she helps him remember his name (Davide) and his time spent in that very ghetto -- which includes recalling the very painful memory of his lover Simone's capture and murder at the hands of the Nazis. Meanwhile, Giovanna has been spending her free time impulsively peeping across the street at her attractive neighbor Lorenzo (Raoul Bova) -- who in turn has been spying on her. Giovanna is thus forced to decide between Filippo and Lorenzo, as well as possibly realizing a long dormant professional dream that her new friend Davide may be able to help her undertake.
Sinossi: Giovanna, una giovane donna sposata e con due figli, si ritrova in casa un uomo molto anziano che ha completamente perso la memoria. Cercando di ricostruire la sua identità e il segreto del suo passato, Giovanna con l'aiuto di Lorenzo, che abita nel palazzo di fronte, scopre piano piano che lei stessa ha smarrito il ricordo dei propri sentimenti e delle proprie passioni. L'indagine su quell'uomo misterioso diventa così per Giovanna una vera e propria indagine su se stessa...
