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.

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. 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...

The Saddest Movie I've Ever Seen.
16 June 2004 | by (Helsinki,Finland) – See all my reviews

What can I say about Anne Frank:The Whole Story that hasn't already been said?Not much I guess.I saw it a week ago when it premiered in Finland and was totally devastated by it.It's quite possibly the saddest movie I've ever seen.There were tears in my eyes throughout the movie and the last half an hour was almost unbearable to watch.

Hannah Taylor Gordon is a revelation.She looks just like Anne Frank but,more importantly,manages to capture her wide-eyed optimism and indomitable spirit perfectly.It's truly heart breaking to see her at the end,her spirit finally broken and all her hope gone.Gordon is so believable in her role,it's almost scary.Ben Kingsley is also wonderful as Anne's father.You really believe they are a father and a daughter.The other actors are good too,but Gordon and Kingsley really stand out.

As I said,there's nothing I can say about this movie that hasn't already been said.It's an experience that will stay with me for a long time and possibly the best holocaust movie I've ever seen. 10/10
