Trivia

All four female leads, Anne (Hannah Taylor Gordon), her sister Margot (Jessica Manley), her mother (Tatjana Blacher) and Auguste Van Pels (Brenda Blethyn) all agreed to lose their hair for the scenes in the concentration camp. It was a requirement of being cast in the role that Hannah and Jessica have their actual hair cut off on camera. It was an act of solidarity with the young girls that Tatjana and Brenda decided to do the same. They came up with the idea the day before the scene was to be filmed. The still photographer did a set of before and after pictures as mementos for the women. See more »

Goofs

Anne is given the tattoo number A-25063. It is only seen when it is given to her and it not seen afterward, not even when her hair is being cut off. See more »

A Fantastic Adaptation of Anne Frank's Diary!
15 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Let's face this fact that Anne Frank's diary is almost as well read as the Bible, Torah, and Koran. We all know about Anne Frank, the Dutch Jewish girl, who hid in the attic with her family during World War II from the Nazis. She wrote in her diary about life in the attic and how they lived under constant fear and terror. The cast has Sir Ben Kingsley as Anne's father, Otto Frank, and lone survivor. Brenda Blethyn OBE is also in the cast. It's chilling when they get to the concentration camp of Bergen-Belsen, the separation, hair-shaving, and ritual act of dehumanizing everybody there. There was no talk among them as they sat with their hair being cut off for another purpose. We know who made it and didn't. After visiting Auschwitz in 2000, I didn't feel what I supposed to feel like ghosts and hauntings which I feared the most because it drains you emotionally. Even 60 years after the Holocaust, I fear that people are forgetting about it and not learning from it. We haven't learned because there are other Anne Franks out there. It is still a haunting and chilling testament of survival and the human spirit.
