Goofs

When Anne's family are being loaded into the truck after their capture, and again boarding the train their breath is seen condensing as if it's a cold winter's day, yet this event occurred in early August. Similarly, when Otto Frank arrives back in Amsterdam 'one month after the liberation' (according to the caption) his breath is again seen condensing as he leaves the train and again by the canal, and the trees are clearly bare, indicating winter, yet 'one month after the liberation' would be early/mid-June.

The continuing story of Anne Frank
21 May 2001 | by (Washington) – See all my reviews

I was skeptical of this TV movie when I found out it was not based on Anne's diary, but on a biography of Anne Frank written by Melissa Muller. I am sure I am not the only one who wondered if any truth would be presented. I was pleasantly surprised.

I have just finished watching the second half of this movie on ABC. The scenes of the concentraion camps are horrific, and really tug at your heart. I can only imagine what these camps were like for the real people and how survivors live life today. Since the story wasn't told from Anne's diary, the viewers got another view of the short but significant life Anne lived, headed by a wonder all-star cast. The movie began with Anne in 1936 and ended upon her death at Bergen-Belsen in 1945.

Hannah Taylor-Gordon was excellent as Anne. At first I wondered if she was too young (at age 14) to portray such a dramatic role, but as Anne grew, Hannah grew as well. Ben Kingsley and Tatjana Blacher played Anne and Margot's parents wonderfully, and the rest of the cast added to the beauty, horror, and passion of the film: Lili Taylor, Rob Das, Brenda Blethyn, and many more.
