Critic Reviews for Amanda

All Critics (24) | Top Critics (5)

Amanda may explore loss with sensitivity and grace, but only after it's shielded its eyes from the rest of the world.

January 10, 2020 | Rating: 3/5

The risk is mawkishness, but the film sidesteps it with a close-up study of loss and new connection.

It tells a familiar story furrowed by quiet emotional conviction, much of it in Lacoste's unhurried, unaffected turn.

Top Critic

A low-key family drama with a shattering tragedy at its heart, Amanda is a quietly moving celebration of human resilience from French writer-director Mikhael Hers.

[A] good-natured and well-intentioned film.

August 30, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

While the film works as a whole, one thing stands out: we never see the terror attack... It knocks you out, but you rebuild, like the characters on screen.
