Very good animation
nubka29 November 2006
This is a wonderful animated version of the Anne Frank story. Why it has not been released in the the USA, I'll never know. I finally broke down and bought a code free DVD player, so that I could play the Region 2 French DVD that I bought on eBay. It has English subtitles, and a few special features, including a very interesting and long interview with Anne's cousin Buddy Elias.

The animation is really great. The story picks up on Anne's 12th birthday, so we get a look into the Frank's apartment on the Merwedeplein, and there is also a scene featuring Anne at school. As in the Millie Perkin's version, Meip and Bep are combined into just "Meip", and Kugler and Kleimann and combined into the character "Koophuis." If you are really into the Anne Frank story, the interview with Buddy Elias alone, makes this DVD worth buying.

Now, if only this animated version was available in the USA!! It would introduce Anne to a whole new audience of young people...
