Life looks bad for a young man named David, who found himself in great responsibility after his sister was brutally murdered. His dead sister left her child Amanda to David, where he faces difficulties by caring for his little niece Amanda, who may have lost her mother at a dangerous age and suffering that has not yet been repeated.
The most remarkable feature of Amanda is that all this is done while the tone stays fairly light, and the movie avoids the posturing and aggressive intent seen in the works of self-confessed Islamophobe Michel Houellebecq.

A low-key family drama with a shattering tragedy at its heart, Amanda is a quietly moving celebration of human resilience from French writer-director Mikhael Hers.
