The Hollywood Reporter
This too-sentimental drama does feature a sterling performance by Giovanna Mezzogiorno as a love-struck housewife dissatisfied with her lot, thus providing the only watchable element of an otherwise disappointing movie. Full Review
Carla Meyer
San Francisco Chronicle
Poignant and carefully observed, the Italian drama Facing Windows portrays two consuming, illicit romances: one in the present, the other kept alive in faulty memory. The long-ago relationship holds far more intrigue. Full Review
Deborah Young
Only partially succeeds in interweaving questions of family loyalty with historical memory and the fate of Italian Jews in WW2. Full Review
Desson Thomson
Washington Post
There's something diverting but not wildly stirring about this Italian drama. Full Review
Jack Mathews
New York Daily News
Ozpetek moves things along at a snail's pace and lays the sentiment down thickly. But it's a potent tale, wonderfully acted by Mezzogiorno and Massimo Girotti as the old man. Full Review
