Anne Frank was an ordinary girl with dreams for her future. The only reason that she was not able to follow her dreams was the sole fact that she, and her people, were considered to be “enemy aliens” in that period of time in history, since she was Jewish. By circumstance, Anne was forced to bear witness to the most pressing tragedy of the 20th century - the Holocaust - and the persecution of Jews in Europe under Nazi occupation during World War II. This four-hour television miniseries tells a story of hope and the light that human kindness brings to our world in times of despair; some very courageous people come to overshadow all the evil in Anne’s world, as not all hearts and souls were seemingly plagued by Nazi ideals and propaganda. As well, it also tells a story of how writing can set you free and that even adolescents may be able to express their viewpoints through the written word. Although the film does not exactly follow the text line/plot, it conveys the overall message and main ideas that were covered in the novel just as well, and portrays Anne’s perspectives respectively. However, it is somewhat choppy when transitioning between different scenes, so that the change in events may seem rather abrupt. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed watching this film and feel that Anne’s written word comes to life, in a way, through this medium, making it an almost “magical” experience when getting the chance to watch it on the big screen. Therefore, I would give this hauntingly beautiful tale four out of five stars for providing an interesting perspective and take on the Holocaust, from the eyes of its’ most innocent of victims.
