Amanda is in her early twenties and has never really had any friends, even though there’s nothing more in the world that she wants. When she moves back to Turin and discovers that she had spent a lot of time with Rebecca as a child, she devises a cunning plan to convince her that they really are best friends.

With rising star Benedetta Porcaroli in the lead role, this is an imaginative and playful debut from exciting young filmmaker Carolina Cavalli. With its dynamic sense of form and style as well as an idiosyncratic storytelling ability, Cavalli is likely to be a film presence to be reckoned with in the years to come, if this film and its participation in last autumn's most prestigious film festivals is anything to go by.

Amanda was one of our great surprise packages and finds of last year - a fun and out of the ordinary cinematic experience about something as simple, yet complicated as friendship.
