The Face of an Angel, film review: A sense of mystery, sex and the unanswered questions of Meredith Kercher's murder

“You can’t tell the truth unless it’s a fiction,” a filmmaker is told as he travels to Italy to make a film about the murder of a British student. Using this philosophy British Filmmaker Winterbottam has made a film about the murder of 21-year-old British student Meredith Kercher in 2007, by changing the names of the protagonists and moving the setting from Perugia to Sienna. The character Simone (Kate Beckinsale) is based on Barbie Latza Nadeau, the journalist who wrote Angel Face, one of the first books published about the trial. The unanswered question of the film is whether filmmaker Thomas (Daniel Brühl) is actually a self-portrait from Winterbottom.
