Goofs

During one of the air-raid scenes, Anne expresses hatred for all Germans. Otto reminds Anne that she is German, and she expresses surprise over this statement, asking Margot to confirm that they were Dutch. Actually, Anne knew full well that she was German, and expressed several times in her diary her sorrow over her "fatherland" being hijacked by the Nazis. See more »

Sensitive, heart-warming & realistic
22 May 2001 | by Curly-27See all my reviews

Having read several books about Anne Frank and seeing the wonderful documentary, ANNE FRANK REMEMBERED, I was very curious about this film. I could not have been more impressed. The casting was excellent, and the acting superb, especially with Hannah Taylor-Gordon as Anne and the riveting presence of Ben Kingsley as Otto. Yes, it was difficult to watch and yes, it was not "entertaining" by definition. But if you want a very accurate portrayal of the before, during and after events of the group who inhabited the "secret annexe," you won't do better than this film. I'm sure it will be a treasure for years to come. Beware: Although it is an excellent educational tool, the last 45 minutes are quite intense and do include some brief nudity. Small children may find it too graphic.
