Editorial Reviews

Ben Kingsley, Brenda Blethyn, and Hannah Taylor Gordon star in the stirring tale of one of the most influential young women of the 20th century. Based on Melissa Muller's critically acclaimed book, ANNE FRANK goes beyond the story you already know and paints the true portrait of Anne both before and after she went into hiding. Get to know the high-spirited and popular girl before the war, and experience the challenges of the brave people who risked their lives trying to keep her safe. ANNE FRANK also explores the enduring mystery of who betrayed the Frank family and reveals what happened next.

Customer Reviews

This movie is very interesting as well.
13 year old Movie Fanatic
This film provides a gripping portrayal of Anne Frank's life coupled with the tragedies she and millions of others experienced in the Holocaust.

I personally think everyone should read this book or another like it to remind us of what can happen.

As i write this review, this film is just finishing up, and I must say, this is one of the most moving accounts of Anne Frank that I've seen to date. We all know the story of Anne Frank, how it started, and what a complete tragic end of her life; and more importantly, what hope she brought to the world that killed her. This film is a remarkable, incredible retelling of the life of Anne Frank.
The reasons why this film soars, aboslutely soars, are numerous. First, the film tells the complete story, from before the Franks hid in the Annex, until her final days in the concentration camp. Whereas some films tend to linger solely on Anne's days in the Annex, this wider focus gives us the larger picture. Anne's time in captivity is heart wrenching; we have fallen in love with the tempestuous, darling girl and to see her solely fade away is devastating. It serves as a testament both to the millions lost, and the one girl that would write a book to change the world.
Secondly, the performances in this movie are amazing. Ben Kingsley and Brenda Blethyn lend their star-stature names to this project, and turn in performances that are real and dignified. Favorite Lili Taylor, who is one of America's most talented actressses, gives a quiet, powerful performance as Miep Gies. It's Hannah Taylor Gorden, as Anne, brings Anne to life with complexity and grace. Gordon honors Anne in every scene, never deifying the girl, but making her real, human. She even writes the way Anne did, holding the pen as Anne would have held it. That attention to detail does not go unnoticed by those of us who love Anne. It was a perfect match of actress and role.
Third, this film is visually beautiful. Often, you expect a "lower" standard of technical excellence in a television film.

In the past year I had been wanting to learn about the story of Anne Frank. I kept passing up the original movie at the video store because I thought it'd be "boring" and that some people said it was too much like your typical Hollywood film.

I didn't care for the original at all and thought the actress who played Anne Frank was miscast to say the least. Not only that, but very annoying. After watching the original movie I bought the book and read it immediately. After finishing it I purchased this movie and was extremely impressed with it. I liked it so much that I immediately loaned it to my mother and she loved it too.

They seemed to keep all the smallest details of the book and the person who played Anne Frank was much better than the actress from the original movie. I believe this was a TV movie, but you can hardly tell. One sign of a good movie is if you think about it weeks and even months later it must be good. It's only been 3 months since I saw this last and I really want to watch it again.

Trust me, get this movie. You'll like it!

I'd also suggest the movie "Anne Frank Remembered".

I am not a crier. I only cry when something pierces me so hard that it forces the tears out. But even this did not pierce me. It stabbed me. I have been researching the Holocaust since I was nine years old. I have read every book there is on it. Watched so many movies on it. But I always had a feeling for Anne Frank. I read her Diary and all that, watched movies on her, so when I saw that a miniseries was coming on on ABC I was pretty excited. Since we don't get ABC my Grandmother taped it for me. Then the next day my Mom, my cousin and I sat down to watch it. The First part was great for me not a single tear but then came day two. When Anne was wrenched out her "Pim's" arms it was too much. The tears came and didn't stop till the Conventration camp was over. It was the very first time I ever cried during a movie. Hannah Taylor Gordon looked so much like Anne that I had to remind myself that the real Anne was dead. Lili Taylor was awsome as Meip Gies the main helper of the Frank Family. Jessica Blanaly as Margot just makes Anne's character shine even more. I think she deserves way more credit then she got. And all the rest of the Characters shine also. Because of the very Graphic images I don't recomend this movie for anybody under 11. But if you are over I strongly recomend this movie. To help us remember to never let this wretched thing happen again.

At the very end of this movie we are presented with the following words:

"One and a half million children were murdered in the genocide the Nazis called `The Final Solution.' Anne Frank's story is only one of them." (The Nazis' final solution was to exterminate the Jews.)

And what a story it is! The story is well told through this movie.

At the beginning of this movie we are presented with the following words (information in parentheses is my own additional information):

(i) This movie is based on the book by Melissa Muller called "Anne Frank: A Biography" (1998) as well as research and interviews by an independent researcher. (I have not read this book but from what I have read, it is excellently researched.)

(ii) Some scenes can also be found in "Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl." Note that the actual words from the diary were not used. (The first diary entry is for mid-June, 1942 and the last one is dated (August 1, 1944). It is also helpful to know that Anne was born June 12, 1929.)

(iii) There are realistic depictions of concentration camp life--including brief nudity.

The actual movie itself can be divided into four parts:

(1) The time before the German-Jewish Anne Frank (Hannah Taylor-Gordon) and her family go into hiding. The movie begins Feb., 1939 in Amsterdam, Holland. Some of this is based on the ten diary entries Anne made before she went into hiding. (This part of the movie lasts about 55 minutes.)

(2) The time the Frank family of four, another family of three, and an elderly dentist went into hiding in the "het achterbuis" which, loosely translated, means "secret annex" of an old three-story building. This part of the movie begins in mid-Nov.
