It's not about 'whodunnit'... there are so many angles, how to organize it in a meaningful way, it's important that its a story based on truth, but i want to do something that transcends that, that its not just a simple reconstruction...

A Poor Movie On What Could Have Been An Interesting Story
Kate Beckinsale, Daniel Brühl, and Cara Delevingne star in this British psychological thriller entitled,"The Face of an Angel". The film is based on the real-life story of the murder of a British exchange student Meredith Kercher from University of Leeds in Italy.
The movie could have been a good one.Too bad that it is not sure of what story it wants to tell. It basically focuses more on media ethics rather than on murder mystery.Added to that,it could not allow the viewer to get interested in it as it tries to present too many details on the irrelevant things and does not dwell on the most important aspect of the stories that drains the suspense and tension of the story.Finally,the performances could not lift the limitations of the poor screenplay.
