This is one of the best films that I've ever seen! In some films that are based on a true story, directors twist the plot line around to suit their whims. But in this one, the producers stuck close to the real story, portraying each character and event as they really were. Actual footage from WWII was inserted in certain points of the film, giving it an authentic air. Also, some of the consultants were people who knew the real Frank family, people like Miep Gies (who to my knowledge is still alive in Amsterdam today) and Jacqueline Van Marsen, one of Anne's childhood friends. The actors and actresses acted out their roles superbly, and I was especially impressed with Hannah Taylor Gordon's performance. Not only does she bear a striking resemblence to the real Anne Frank, but she also acts very much like I believe Anne would have acted. I also appreciate the fact that, even though the film's setting is a very harsh time in history, the producers managed to show the brutality of the Nazi occupation without resorting to blood and gore. Anne's story is a sad one, but one worth watching, because it reminds us that the people who died in the holocaust were just normal human beings with hopes and dreams, whose lives were abruptly snuffed out by people who were blinded by racism and extreme nationalism. I would recommend this film for any history buff. It's definitely the best portrayal of Anne Frank on film. Thumbs up for this movie!

Format: Interactive DVD
"Anne Frank - the Whole Story" is a well-acted and beautifully filmed movie based on Melissa Muller's biography of Anne Frank.It basically recounts how the Frank family comprising father Otto, mother Edith and daughters Margot and Anne chose to go into hiding in Amsterdam after the Nazis stepped up their persecution of Jews [and Margot got a summons for deportation].Their hiding place is a secret annex located in the factory run by Otto Frank. The Franks' trusted Gentile friends help them and soon the hiding place is opened to accommodate the Van Pels' [husband, wife and teen son, Peter] and a dentist, Mr Pfeffer. The Jewish refugees spend about 2 yrs in hiding, from July 1942 till Aug 1944 [when they were betrayed].

This was a difficult movie to watch because I was already familiar with Anne's story [having read "Diary of a Young Girl" more than two decades ago] and knew what happened to Anne, her family and the rest of the hidden Jews. The movie was beautifully filmed with great attention to period details and the excellent casting choices made this the best movie on Anne Frank I've ever watched.

Ben Kingsley is very credible as Otto Frank, the stoic WW I German veteran who is initially optimistic that the war will soon end. His intense bond and love for Anne is very real in this movie, as is his portrayal of a protective family man who is determined to keep his family together, no matter what. Hannah Taylor-Gordon plays Anne Frank, and her resemblance to the real-life Anne is quite uncanny. Her portrayal of Anne is simply amazing - strong-willed, impetuous, candid, ambitious, and yet, underlying all that fierceness of spirit is a young girl on the brink of womanhood who yearns to be thought of as a woman and not a girl, and longs for freedom and love.

Format: VHS Tape
I have been fortunate enough to be able to see this movie through SKY Moviemax tv in the United Kingdom.I have seen many versions of the story of Anne Frank,but none that hit me so hard as this one.I was moved to tears,espescially during the final scenes in Bergen Belsen concentration camp when Anne is desperately trying to keep Margot alive,although the situation is absoloutly hopeless.For me the saddest thing is that Anne believed that her father was dead,if only she could have known that he was still alive then she might have found more strength to survive until the liberation which ,unfortunately came too late to save her.My father went into Bergen-Belsen as a Britsh Royal Army Medical Corp just a few weeks after the liberation and he was able to confirm some of the horrors that were found in that camp.For me,this movie provides a very moving tribute to Anne Frank and it is one which nobody should miss.The characters all gave superb,realistic portrayals,espescially Hannah Gordon-Taylor ,who is a very talented young actress and Ben Kingsly was very convincing as Otto Frank.Just one question,will the video be released in The UK?

At last, this stunning ABC mini series is coming to video! (I am ordering mine as soon as I finish writing this review!).
At last we can see the full story, from before the diary and after, and it's everything we could imagine!
Hannah Taylor-Gordon plays Anne. After a pain-staking casting search, the requirements that the actress should bear a clear resemblance to the real girl and have a solid acting style were clearly found in Gordon. She is truly the epitome of what we envision Anne to be.
Rounding out the cast are Ben Kingsley as Otto Frank, Tatjana Blacher as Edith Frank, Brenda Blethyn as Auguste van Pels and Lili Taylor as Miep Gies.
Filmed on location in Prague, the entire production is flawless and is based on Melissa Muller's book on Anne, not on the actual diary itself.
If you love the story of Anne, you will love this new mini series. Your heart will sing, soar and break.
