The Face Of An Angel is a British film. The main characters in the film are three actors: Kate Beckinsale, Daniel Brühl, and a supermodel as well as a singer Cara Delevingne. The film based on the true story about the life of Amanda Knox, who are accused of killing Meredith Kercher in 2007 and went to prison in Italy for nearly 4 years.
built on the intriguing idea of using a thinly fictionalized version of the notorious Amanda Knox trial to explore how real-life events are transformed into art, but the resulting film gets muddy and misguided very quickly
The film does occasionally show a pulse when it tries to re-imagine the life of the victim - when it turns the tables on the mystery and tries to become a film about love and life, instead of doom and death. But it's too little, too late, and too lame.
Occasionally Winterbottom delivers a haunting, effective moment, giving a hint of a different, more compelling film. But then it's back to the self-righteous, self-indulgent, muddled metaphors.

To get at the heart of what's wrong with "The Face of an Angel" all you need to do is consider the professional stones it takes to adapt the Amanda Knox case into yet another movie about the existential/amorous crises of a white male filmmaker.
There's a great deal of intelligent material here. Winterbottom mounts a harsh attack on our fascination with killers and our tendency to forget the victim. Yet it's overlaid with so much navel-gazing, it's hard to take.
