Trivia

This mini-series was not sanctioned by Bernd Elias, Anne Frank's cousin and chairman of the Anne Frank Fonds (which owns the copyright of Anne's Dairy), as a result, this mini-series could not directly quote "Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl". See more »

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. 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 Peter2See 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
