My Best Friend Anne Frank (Mijn beste vriendin Anne Frank) is a drama movie directed by Ben Sombogaart. Starring Aiko Beemsterboer and Josephine Arendsen. It has been written by Marian Batavier y Paul Ruven.
Based on the real-life friendship between Anne Frank and Hannah Goslar, from Nazi-occupied Amsterdam to their harrowing reunion in a concentration camp. (Filmaffinity)
But, the film is also a story of how the human spirit endures. It is a story about courage and resilience, but mainly of hope. Josephine Arendsen, who played Hannah, is a delight to watch and lifts up the film at times when the script fails her. The other characters lack depth, resulting in a movie with a lot of wasted potential.
This film wants to spotlight a story of friendship and childhood innocence during the Holocaust, but feels quaint and misguided.
