The irresponsible inaccuracies in this production are bad enough, but the editing of the documentary that followed the original airing was deplorable.

The original documentary included forensic evidence and absence of evidence commentary which clearly showed that Amanda and Raffaele could not have been involved in the crime, as the appeals court eventually ruled.

But I guess that would have damaged the titillation factor that Lifetime was gunning for. It's sad that human lives are held hostage to our insatiable demand for entertainment. Things haven't changed since the Roman Holidays at the Coliseum.

This was an ok movie, withesaying that and the issues still being current and sensitive I really don't want to say much. I don't know if everything that was shown if it was actually how it happen or it lifetime fabricated other parts. After watching I still have some questions here and there about what took place. I will say this I do travel but not alot but when I travel to another country I have to be very aware because you just never know.

The whole thing is so sad and in the end it's the victim that nobody remembers just this big case.

Regardless of anything, this book is based off another book called, "Angel Face, the true story of student killer Amanda Knox.
That should say everything...

Judge Gordon Sullivan, DVD Verdict-- Ignoring all the real-life hubbub about Kercher and Knox, Murder on Trial in Italy is an okay made-for-TV film. Hayden Panettiere does a fine job making Knox a bit ambiguous. She doesn't play her as the trumped-up sexpot of the media, nor as the innocent angel her supporters would have you believe in. Instead, she's confused young woman who we can't quite believe. Some of her actions can put down to her age and inexperience, but others are a bit more troubling. Knox's supposed partner in crime, Guiliano Mignini, is ably played by Vincent Riotta, who bears a striking resemblance to his real-life counterpart in some shots. The film also managed to snag the dependable Marcia Gay Harden as Amanda's mother. She's the one responsible for really driving home the prosecutorial aspect of Amanda's treatment.

Despite the sensational aspects of the film's title, and the trial, the film could be a lot worse. Sticking to a fairly simple flashback structure, it starts with the discovery of the body and works backwards to fill in the details of Amanda's life.

Amanda Knox: Murder on Trial in Italy comes to DVD in a simple, solid package. The anamorphic widescreen transfer is bright and colorful, belying the dark nature of the story. I didn't notice any significant compression or authoring problems, and this DVD looks about as good as you can expect from contemporary television. The audio is a bit less impressive, but totally serviceable. Dialogue is kept clear in this simple stereo mix, never overwhelmed by effects or music.

It was really fun to watch this for the many views of Perugia and of the cottage tho it could have been much better if their intent was honorable - or even better (seeking TRUTH, not just quick cash $$$)

EVERYONE was against the making of this film before the trial finished, including the defense of Knox, Sollecito and even the defense of Meredith.

I woulld have loved to hear how Hayden was advised to portray AK cuz she sure does make her look GUILTY tho the evidence says NO.

Amanda and Raffaele were not 'surprised' or 'caught' by the police - that's why they were standing outside the cottage waiting!

The clock on the wall was 12 minutes SLOW, not fast as Mignini claimed.

In the film MK's room is twice the size that it really was. Too small for 4 people!

She had no dresser.

Meredith was not stripped to her bra and panties. She was stabbed before she even took her coat off!

She was sexually assaulted after she was mortally wounded, as she lay dead or dying.

Mignini claims she didn't retract her srtatement but court testimony proves that's not true!

AK knew the details of the murder because Filimina's friends Paola and Luca looked into the room and told Raffaele and Amanda what they saw. Again, as they testified in court!

They never had a picnic - they met in frigid October.

They didn't run away laughing and gigglinng from the candlelit vigil.

AK and RS were not there. They were called back into the station that night.

NONE of MK's friends or the other roommates were at the vigil either.

NO ONE yet knew who the murderer was as the lab tests were not back and Rudy had not yet been found!

TERRIBLE FILM! SHAME on LifeTime for shwoing it in Italy now!!!

$$$$$$ at the expense of EVERYONE exceot the MURDERER, RUDY GUEDE!!!

An absolute terrible film. Completely inaccurate to the point of defamation. Badly written and acted. It's obvious no actual research was done about the circumstances of the actual events. It seems as though the actors and writers used The Daily Mail as their guide. Full of yellow journalism and tabloid sensationalism.
