Amanda (2022), directed by Carolina Cavalli

Eccentric twenty-something Amanda has no friends, despite it being the thing she desires most. When she discovers that, as a toddler, she was best friends with a girl called Rebecca, Amanda sets out to rekindle the long dormant relationship.

This highly entertaining arrested development coming-of-age film is already being compared to the works of filmmakers as distinctive and diverse as Yorgos Lanthimos, Miranda July, Aki Kaurismäki, Noah Baumbach and Paolo Sorrentino. And yet, Amanda still announces the arrival of an engaging new voice in international cinema, in the form of writer/director Carolina Cavalli. With its very likeable blend of deadpan comedy and breezy drama, Amanda is guaranteed to charm.
