The Italians do a sort of romantic film best, but they start with a big edge: Italy. In Facing Windows, they have Rome and the warm colors and the food, and a very good cast led by immensely appealing Giovanna Mezzogiorno.
It's Italian, it's actually quite mesmerizing in the manner of '50s psychological melodrama held together by incredible coincidences, everyone in it is splendidly attractive, and when you get out, you will be thinking: 'I have to get a pie soon.'
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.
