I was struck by the bright green coat that Amanda Knox was wearing at the end of her trial when she was compared to Amélie, the heroine of the eponymous movie that Knox and her boyfriend claimed to have watched on the night that Meredith Kercher was murdered.
Interestingly, the film is also dominated by the colour green: green lighting, green walls, green furniture and green clothes.
So was this an attempt to create a visual association between Knox and an adorable character whose sole aim in life is to bring joy to others?
If so, it fails completely. Amanda Knox is clearly no Amélie; she's way too weird for that. Worse still, green is definitely not her colour.
