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 »

Quotes

[first lines]
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.

The Battle for Humanity
22 May 2001 | by (Eatontown, NJ, USA) – See all my reviews

This TV mini-series shows us the horrors resulting from the cold, clinical meeting dramatized in HBO's film CONSPIRACY.

But beyond the horrors, this film is a touching presentation of the events behind the book THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK and goes far beyond the stage play and film of that title. Anne, her friends, her family, and her world are depicted before, during, and after the long, hopeful, but futile hiding in an attic. Various forms of the monstrosities of humans who forget their humanity are pitted against the perseverance of people who maintain their humanity.

This film should be seen in conjunction with CONSPIRACY, SCHINDLER'S LIST, VOYAGE OF THE DAMNED and other films that vividly show us what happened at a time when the human race was supposedly at a very highly civilized point. Such films show what horrors the human race can create when we forget who and what we are -- human.

We should see such horrors so that we do not forget. As the old saying goes, he who forgets the past...
