A good movie

Well, it was the week-end and it didn’t feel like watching another fiction so I decided to check this documentary on Netflix. Eventually, it was pretty good but, to be honest, I expected it to be more ambiguous. Indeed, the point of the whole thing was to find out for the viewers if they would believe that Amanda Knox has brutally killed her roommate or not. Well, in my opinion, it was obvious that she was innocent pretty much from the very beginning. For example, when the body was discovered, Giuliano Mignini, the prosecutor, argues that a man would never cover a victim’s body and that only a woman would do that which was just a ridiculous and even rather pathetic argument. Then, he kept arguing that Amanda Knox had an odd behaviour which was in fact never ever displayed or actually proven. I mean, for example, according to him, it was strange that she couldn’t keep up her story straight but what you would you expect from a 20 yeard old student who suddenly had to go through hours of aggressive interrogation from the police forces? Maybe for the first hours you would be able to tell the truth but, at some point, you would say whatever the police would want to hear just to make them stop. Eventually, her guilt was mostly based on some obsession from the police forces and the media frenzy around this case than actual evidence. Anyway, to conclude, even though it was slightly disappointing, it was still a decent watch and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.
