Brilliant adaptation.By a customer from Surrey, England , 11 Jan 2009
[Highly rated reviewer]A brilliant and heartbreaking performance by all the actors. This adaptatation has compelled me back to Anne's diary I last read at school. I feel Ellie Kendrick has given complete justice to Anne's witty, outspoken and intelligent character.

A brilliant watch.By amidwife (21 reviews) , 24 Oct 2013An excellent way to learn about Anne Frank and what happened to her. Really well scripted and there isn't many scenes in it that you wouldn't want your children to watch really.
Surprisingly grippingBy a customer , 12 Oct 2013Despite the claustrophobic setting, this is compelling viewing, that felt too short (5 episodes). Excellent performances from an impressive cast and the adaptation is very true to the original. The ending brought us all to tears and back to Anne's diary. It is a tragic story, but also an incredibly honest insight into a teenager's world - not much has changed there!
Well made adaptation..By a customer , 21 Mar 2012This certainly deserves five stars from me. Wonderful acting from all the actors but especially Tamsin Greig who played Annes dower mother to perfection. Left me feeling so sad and upset for her and her family. An ordinary teenager, though living in constant fear for her life, was still going through the typical difficult stages of childhood to adolescence, albeit in extreme confinement. Highly emotional film and would highly recommend it.
The sufferings of war.By growlerbear (8 reviews) , 24 Nov 2011this was a really enjoyablef film. What courage.It must have been very difficult for everyone. the end was unexpected. Anne was a stroppy cow.
Accessible to all agesBy a customer , 26 Aug 2011A brilliant portrayal of the story - accessible to younger readers who have read the book without scaring them with too much graphoc coverage of what was a hideous time.
