Beautifully shot, great scenery and really interesting characters
17 February 2019 | by OscarMcGeachie1995See all my reviews

I bought "Amanda" (which is only available on DVD as "Amanda: Das Wunderpfred" in German) for 7.49 Euro (£6.56) on Amazon.de as a Christmas present.

In Red Lodge Montana, Biddle (Kirean Culkin) lives with his brother and parents in a small ranch where they are horse-mad and everything is all about horse-riding. But he has problems with his eyes as the result of falling off the back of a horse, and is scared of horse-riding but sticks to riding a bike as his freedom. But his life changes when he makes friends with a famous horse called 'Amanda'
