Goofs

In the movie, the address given to the Germans of the hiding place over the telephone by the supposed informer is incorrect. The informer says the address is 263 Lindtstradt, but was actually 263 Prinsengracht. It still exists today as the Anne Frank House museum in Amsterdam. The real betrayer of the hiding place has never been revealed or proven beyond only circumstantial evidence. The informer depicted in the movie is based on the belief of Melissa Muller, who wrote the book (Anne Frank: A Biography) that the movie is largely based on. In her book "The Hidden Life of Otto Frank" by Carol Ann Lee, which was published in 2002 and revised in 2003, an entirely different theory as to the identity of the informer is presented. Officially, the identity of the actual informer that betrayed those in the hiding place has never been conclusively determined and most likely never will be, as most of those that would be able to shed more light on the subject have since died.

Anne Frank: I want to be a champion skater, and a writer. I want my picture in all the magazines. Maybe I'll be a movie star. I want to be different from all the other girls. I want to be a modern woman, I want to travel. I want to study languages - languages and history. I want to to everything. I want to...

Sensitive, heart-warming & realistic
22 May 2001 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

Having read several books about Anne Frank and seeing the wonderful documentary, ANNE FRANK REMEMBERED, I was very curious about this film. I could not have been more impressed. The casting was excellent, and the acting superb, especially with Hannah Taylor-Gordon as Anne and the riveting presence of Ben Kingsley as Otto. Yes, it was difficult to watch and yes, it was not "entertaining" by definition. But if you want a very accurate portrayal of the before, during and after events of the group who inhabited the "secret annexe," you won't do better than this film. I'm sure it will be a treasure for years to come. Beware: Although it is an excellent educational tool, the last 45 minutes are quite intense and do include some brief nudity. Small children may find it too graphic.
