THE BEDROOM WINDOW is a movie co-written and directed by Curtis Hanson in 1987.
Baltimore. Steve Guttenberg is an architect who's just been lucky with his boss's wife, Isabelle Huppert. While he's in the shower, Huppert hears a scream outside and witnesses an assault on a young woman from the bedroom window of Guttenberg's flat. Guttenberg hasn't seen the man but, after having read the newspapers and learned that a young woman was raped and murdered the same night in the neighborhood, he calls 911 the next day. In order to protect Huppert from unwanted publicity, he tells the detectives that he saw himself the whole scene. Naturally, he won't be able to recognize Brad Greenquist when the detectives present a line of suspects in front of him. Following only his instinct, he tails Greenquist and soon is persuaded, after a new murder, that Greenquist is guilty. Being the only witness of the assault of Elizabeth McGovern, he is asked by the State Attorney to testify but is trapped by the precise questions of Greenquist's lawyer. Greenquist is released, Huppert doesn't want to have anything with Guttenberg anymore as she has told the truth to her husband and the police is beginnning to suspect him. At the opera house, Greenquist kills Huppert who dies in Guttenberg's arms in front of the audience. Guttenberg is now the number one suspect and asks McGovern to help him find a way to prove his innocence.
Good homage to Alfre Hitchcock.
