A Wonderful Anne...
20 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Anyone who thinks that Hannah Taylor-Gordon's portrayal of Anne Frank was the ultimate, should see this movie. Katharine Schlesinger, to me, was perfect as Anne, both in looks, and acting. This Anne was so well written. You really get a chance to see all sides of her

This BBC mini-series is great. The writing, sets, and acting were first rate, and I think it's every bit as good as the Taylor-Gordon version (except this one doesn't go into what happened after the betrayal.) My only complaint was Otto Frank. I didn't think the role was cast well, and (in the script) he seemed to get flustered very easily, which doesn't sound like the real Otto at all. Also, there were a few inaccuracies with the Dr. Dussel character.

It's a really shame that this isn't available in the U.S. My DVD is from Holland. Fortunately for me I have a code-free DVD player.
