Goofs

The film implies a long-standing crush on Anne by Peter van Pels, even before the two went into hiding together. There is no evidence of this, and Anne hardly mentions Peter in her diary at all until January 1944 - a year and a half after going into hiding - when she expresses the overwhelming desire to talk to someone. Prior to this, Anne gives the reader the impression that she and Peter usually ignored each other. See more »

Quotes

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 mermattSee 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...
