Facing Windows

Movie: Facing Windows. The title makes it sound like a creepy stalker film but it isn't. It's an Italian drama from 2004 about a couple who happen upon an elderly amnesiac. The kind-hearted husband thinks they should take the man in and help him. The wife is against it. Irony kicks in and it's her life that is changed and given direction by the amnesiac's advice. There's another bit of irony in that if you had only one thing you could remember, you wouldn't chose to have it be the night during World War 2 when you were taken away to a concentration camp.
