Ellenor (Age 10) - ★★★★★

"This is an animated wonder. It tells the story of Anne Frank, a Jewish girl who was

forced into hiding after the Nazis invaded her country, the Netherlands, during World

War II. The story is told by Kitty, who was Anne Frank’s imaginary friend in her


I thought that the style of the story and the animation were both amazing. I really

liked how the story was told from Kitty’s point of view. It was told both in the past,

when Anne was writing her diary and from “a year after today”. I loved the

animation. It was clever and imaginative and fantastic.

I thought it was a perfect mix of scary, funny and sad. I liked the way that Anne’s life

story was told. I found the animation of the Nazis very, very scary and the scene with

the cow was disturbing! It was very loud in places and I had to cover my ears.

The film sends a very powerful message out into the world today. It tells what

happened in the past, what is happening today and how we can change it. I think it is

very important that we learn from history, so that we don’t keep repeating the same


The ending was well done and it was really the only way to end the film.

I really enjoyed this film and it made me think about the world we live in today and

how we treat others. I recommend it to everyone."
