A man with 20/20 vision looks through twenty windows and sees his ex-wife through each of these windows. Yet that entire day she was in her small apartment that used to be their love nest back then when they were still married. If I tell you that David Copperfield has no role in the riddle, can you fill in the omitted parts and solve this very interesting riddle?

A hint: It was nighttime. This perhaps is not very important. However, it concerns a certain film..

He was in a building opposite, and through every window in that building he could see in to his ex-wife's apartment where she was watching TV with the light on.  She wasn't watching David Copperfield though.

That is an interesting idea and a bit disturbing too. 1st part of your guess is right. As per per looking through twenty windows in his building sounds real silly even impossible too me. His apartment is small as well.

Just apply the same approach you mobilized for another riddle of mine. See what I mean?

Not yet!  I will still propose another solution though:
 
The man is looking through a kaleidoscope, in some strange alternate version of rear window.

Nope. Is that some kind of telescope?

Got it. I mean, me, not you.  
 
Twenty windows were twenty windows. So no kaleidoscope, or fly, or Jeff Goldblum or whatnot.

The man was reminiscing about his past, and so was looking through old photos of his ex-wife - 20 of them.  He opened them each in a separate window.

Nice try. Though not at all what I had in mind.
