Awaiting their inevitable deaths at one of the worst concentration camps, a group of Jews make a rabbinical court to decide whether G-d has went against the holy covenant and if He is the one guilty for their suffering.
This is a romantic film instead of a war film. It starts with the casting of Anne, who is much more beautiful and sweet as the real one. The trains that the Jews were transported in, had enough room for the people to walk around freely, and there was plenty of daylight in them. Things that the prisoners said or did that would have certainly got them shot, didn't now. At the end of the film when Hanelli steps on the plane, she is 19. But she is played by a 13 year old girl with braids. Very unrealistic. I didn't think you could ruin a film about Anne Frank, but this film unfortunately proved me wrong.
The only memorable moment in the film is when Otto Frank receives the letter that tells him what happened to his daughters. Otherwise, waste of time.
