[radio chimes]

[officer speaking Italian]

Perugia Police Department.

The address is 7 Via della Pergola.

[dispatcher] Marco, listen.

Do you understand

there's a dead girl here?

[officer] The request is from Amanda.

Amanda Knox.

[man] Bra.

They covered her.

Shit.

Shit.

[Amanda Knox in English]

There are those who believe in my innocence.

And there are those

who believe in my guilt.

There's no in between.

And if I'm guilty...

it means that I am

the ultimate figure to fear.

Because I'm not the obvious one.

But on the other hand,

if I'm innocent,

it means that everyone's vulnerable.

And that's everyone's nightmare.

Either I'm a psychopath

in sheep's clothing,

or I am you.

You can see that this

does not look like grief,

does not read as grief.

I think everyone's reaction

to something horrible is different.

Your roommates, your boyfriend, the cops,

they all say the same thing.

They thought you were responding weird.

Odd. Strange.

What makes you strange?

[woman] If you google the name

"Amanda Knox," you get 7.1 million hits.

You all know better than anybody

that hundreds of thousands

of those are not kind.

[interviewer]

"She-devil with an angel face.

Heartless manipulator.

Concertante of sex."

[interviewer] Were you into deviant sex?

Insensitive question, but, hey,

we gotta get to what it is.

This fuels the doubt.

Did you have any type

of experimental activities there

you're embarrassed to talk about?

[interviewer]

Did you kill Meredith Kercher?

No.

- Were you there that night?

- No.

Do you know anything

you have not told police?

- Do you know anything?

- No.

[car alarm beeps]

[Amanda] Before Italy, I had a happy life.

[Amanda's sister] All right, Amanda.

Are you excited to see David?

David? David?

[Amanda's sister]

David, the statue of David.

Oh. [chuckles]

- God damn.

- Good one. [chuckles]

[Amanda] I was quirky

and I was okay with that.

And I was ridiculous

and I was okay with that.

I thought of myself as, like,

a warrior princess.

I'm like Xena! [laughs]

I remember thinking,

"Okay, I'm different.

I'm my own person,

but I'm gonna find my place."

- [meowing]

- [Amanda] Yeah, I know, I know.

I know.

Going into college,

I felt a little behind.

[woman] One shot. One shot, Amanda.

[man] Don't you dare.

- It was one and a half, okay?

- [woman] It was one shot.

One and a half.

[Amanda] I didn't depend on myself much.

And I felt like it was very important

for me to get out of my comfort zone

and see if that made me

turn into an adult.

Italy has so much history.

Ruins, art, vineyards.

And I thought,

"I will find myself in this new place."

[Amanda's sister] So are you excited

to go live in Italy?

Fuckin' yeah, bitch.

Those first weeks,

I was discovering what the city was.

I was living with these Italian women

and a British girl my age,

who was super sophisticated.

And we had this beautiful house

that overlooked this valley, like,

I was owning it. [chuckles]

I was expecting that I was going to be

part of this scholarly program.

And it was zero work.

And so I thought,

"Okay, I might as well get a job."

Patrick Lumumba was

trying to get his bar off the ground.

And he hired me hoping

it would bring in customers.

I swear to God,

I don't know what it is about people

who think that guys

are not attractive physically, but...

[whistles]

[Amanda] In Seattle, I was cute.

In Italy, I was the beautiful,

blonde American girl.

That, I had never been before.

[orchestra playing]

[Raffaele Sollecito]

I went to a classical music concert
