Amazing Anne Frank!
16 February 2002 | by famousgir1See all my reviews

This version of The Diary Of Anne Frank is absolutely brilliant and of course *very* sad too, especially as I am Jewish, myself. Melissa Gilbert is great as Anne Frank as are rest of the cast, including Maximilian Schell, who played Otto Frank and Scott Jacoby, who played Pete Van. The Diary Of Anne Frank is highly recommended to anyone of any age, as is the book, which I'm sure most people have read by now.

"We all live with the objective of being happy; our lives are all different and yet the same." - Anne Frank.
