The film has a reflection on whatever a side light is brighter. At night, another mirror inside my room when a light is on.

Answer: 
You can see in when inside is brighter. The film has a reflection on whatever a side light is brighter. At night, need a privacy, not another big mirror inside a room when a light is on. It totally wastes money and time.

Answer: 
Yes, especially during the day when it is brighter outside. At night, or if you turn on a bright light inside the space one can see inside. Under normal conditions this only occurs at night when you turn a light on in the space. During the day it is almost always one way viewing (inside can see out, outside cannot see in).

Answer: 
Yes... to the daylight privacy film. It works on the principle of the dark side (indoors) being shielded by the mirror effect on the light side (the outdoors light).
At night, the light is stronger indoors (usually), so people can see in without a problem, and the mirror effect is on the inside... so it reflects the light from inside back into the room.

The side that is under the protective layer is the side that goes against the glass. I noticed that the adhesive label that held the roll together in the box was attached to the protective film. This will give you a hint. If it is a larger window, have someone help you to prevent it from doubling over on itself.

The mirror side of the film is the side with the most light.
When installed, the side that is dark (inside the house, for instance) cannot be seen from the outside (the brighter side).
At night, the darker side becomes the outdoors... and when you turn your lights on in the house, that side (indoors) becomes the mirror side... you will not be able to see out of the window as long as the lights

I hope this helps...
Just follow the instructions for the installation...
There really isn't any "mirror side" to determine.
How it is employed once installed determines which side reflects.

I wanted this for my garage so no one can see in. If it is nighttime and there are no lights on in the garage, can a person shining a flashlight in from the outside see anything inside?

No, but he burglar can see your flashlight, the one that is mounted to your 45 caliber pistol, which is being aimed at them. It is common at which point for them to no longer be trying to rob you.

Answer: 
The flashlight would make the film more reflective, if they press their face against the glass and shield any outside light with their hands, they will be able to see inside like you can with tint on a car window. If you are looking for more privacy than this, you might prefer the frosted version.

According to the claim on the box itself... it indicates it can reduce the heat of the sun by 79%. . .
that's a bold claim.
I am not interested in that capability; I want it to reflect the light for a photo technique.
I hope that helps. . .

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 113 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Awful product Not at all what the product says it is. Tears easily. September 6, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Good for day only I bought this for privacy thinking that it would mirror everything from the outside only. But at night it mirrors the inside as well and the people can look inside your house as clear as day and you can't see them. It only works based on how light hits it. Not happy with the product. Even during the day they can still see inside if not enough light hits the window to reflect. August 16, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to install, but passers-by stop to look into the mirror I have installed this product for privacy issues (my windows are close to the sidewalk at eye level). The installation was fairly easy, but I suggest practice putting it on and off on a few small squares and using a larger squigee for larger windows. The only "bad" remark I have is that people passing by (especially young women) stop to look at their reflection in my windows. (Some fix their hair, makeup, clothes, take selfies, etc.). I find this annoying and wished it did not have a mirrored finish on the outside. But overall, it does its job as nothing inside my house can be seen from the outside, not even our big smiles or waves. June 25, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Product is full of imperfections instructions and kit faulty The idea of the product is very good and when installed properly and with window film free of defects, the window treatment is wonderful. Unfortunately, with the instructions provided and the the purchased window trim kit, the installation of the window film for a relatively modest size window is awful. The single razor provided, is worthless and the scraper provided is so small is pathetic to use for a standard size window. Finally the window film is full of line imperfections(wiggles etc). August 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Spend 20 minutes to read instructions/watch demo I have a 3 clear glass inserts in my balcony railing and wanted to darken them up for some privacy. I bought the mirrored film and briefly glanced at the instructions before attempting to install - big mistake. I found the installation process cumbersome and my results were awful (lots of creases, bubbles, etc.). Going back to the drawing board, I decided to go to the Gila website and watch the demo videos which were a big help. Key tips: clean the window thoroughly, be generous with the application spray, cut the film at least an extra inch wider than needed on all sides (to be trimmed later), follow their squeegee technique, and put the video on your phone/tablet as you install. Although the film-peeling process was still a bit finicky (would help with two people), my results were 10 times better (bubbles and creases virtually gone), and you can barely see through the balcony from the street. Very nice result! April 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love it Bought it related to blocking the sun from my bedroom windows the heat is Tremendous hottest room in th house , I chose this product vs the heat film because it blocks more of the Rays allowing less heat . Could tell a remarkable difference when I put up one window treatment and held my hand up to the uncovered window vs the covered window , and the next day was even better I finally had a cool room! It was no longer unbarable heat box it felt cool. Unless your window film expert definitely need to people To get the job done. It was a process but went well with help definitely worth taking the time to do . June 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Gil's Mirror Film Excellent product for various applications. I have used the film for years with no complaints. Applying the film can be tricky. Take your time. Use plenty of water and be careful not to let the film touch each other or it is ruined. July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Works Really Well! I love the privacy afforded by the mirrored effect. However, for windows above 8' in height you may need two people to apply the film. It can be labor intensive and frustrating for inexperienced people like me. July 26, 2016
