Critic Reviews for The Diary of Anne Frank
One of those extremely long and well-meaning adaptations of plays, this doesn't really amount to very much, despite its intrinsically moving subject matter.
Mr. Stevens has done a superb job of putting upon the screen the basic drama and shivering authenticity of the Frances Goodrich-Albert Hackett play, which in turn caught the magnitude of drama in the real-life diary of a Jewish girl.
Represents Stevens at the height of his pretentiousness and the depths of his accomplishment.
The strength of both families in the face of such frightening conditions provides the film with a moral center and tragic power that overcome its minor weaknesses.
A poignant drama bringing us into the lives of Anne Frank, whose diary inspired millions seeking to understand why such a sweet, innocent child could be murdered in the Holocaust.
Audience Reviews for The Diary of Anne Frank
book is better
A classic movie based on a classic novel/diary of the real experiences of a girl living in Nazi Germany. This movie really brings the events to life, and I highly recommend seeing it.
Touching classic based upon true events in WWII on Diary of Anne Frank. I read the Book twice and every tiny bit of the words in the book sucked me in to it. A tragedy.
