pretty good
30 December 2000 | by See all my reviews

This film is the theatrical follow-up to a very popular German TV-series (also called "Anna"), about a young girl who wants to make it as a prima ballerina. The plot is pretty predictable (and comparable to many other a dancing-film), but that doesn't really matter, since the dancing and the charm of the main leads (especially non-professional actress Silvia Seidel as Anna) save the day. A worthy sequel to the even better TV-series. Witty and charming. 7/10
