Synopsis

Amanda is a genuinely moving film about the impact of a terrorist outrage – the film is set within the context of the attacks in Paris and Nice – on a young family.

Cleverly, Director Mikhaël Hers does not focus on the attack itself but on the human consequences for those caught up in it – in this case David who suddenly finds himself solely responsible for his 7 year-old niece, Amanda.

With a delightful performance in the title role from Isaure Multrier and a cameo from KFF guest Greta Scacchi this is a film of great sincerity and warmth.

Thanks to Curzon
