Trivia

All four female leads, Anne (Hannah Taylor Gordon), her sister Margot (Jessica Manley), her mother (Tatjana Blacher) and Auguste Van Pels (Brenda Blethyn) all agreed to lose their hair for the scenes in the concentration camp. It was a requirement of being cast in the role that Hannah and Jessica have their actual hair cut off on camera. It was an act of solidarity with the young girls that Tatjana and Brenda decided to do the same. They came up with the idea the day before the scene was to be filmed. The still photographer did a set of before and after pictures as mementos for the women. 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 »

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...

Honest, Truthful, Real...Truly Anne Frank
21 May 2001 | by ConfuciusSaySee all my reviews

Anne Frank. A girl like anyone else. Anne Frank. A girl who wanted to travel, to do great things, to be a "modern woman". Just an ordinary girl, who lived and died under extraordinary circumstances. Forced into hiding after the Germans gained control of the Netherlands, she was confined in an annex for two years, and then discovered and with her family was taken to a concentration camp. She later perished there. The only survivor of the annex group was Anne's father, Otto Frank. All that is left of her story is the diary she left behind. Her diary, her legacy to the world, defined the voice of a generation. Her irrepressible spirit and pure heart shine through within its pages. Her words, some of the most precious words in history, have been preserved for posterity in the novel, Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl. This movie, Anne Frank: the Whole Story, tells this tale with such power it leaves the viewer in tears. From her bright, hopeful beginning to her heart-wrenching end, this movie grows a step further than the diary and really does show the "whole story". Inspiring, truthful, tragic, heartbreaking, yet triumph. 10/10
