Very good animation
nubka from United States
29 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...
