The new animated feature from Ari Folman (Waltz with Bashir) is a visionary retelling of the Anne Frank story that connects her legacy to oppression in the modern world.
One night in a near-future Amsterdam, in the Anne Frank House – once a secret hideout, now a museum – Anne’s world-famous diary opens of its own accord and her imaginary friend Kitty (Ruby Stokes) magically enters the world as a real person. Taking the diary with her – and dodging police as they hunt the thief – Kitty explores the 21st century while reminiscing on the life of her creator (voiced by Emily Carey) via deeply moving flashbacks. Befriending a group of asylum seekers in hiding, Kitty is saddened to find that war, injustice and prejudice are still very much with us. Combining young-adult adventure, fantasy and social commentary, this timely tale is enlivened by wonderfully vivid and dreamlike animation.
Fervent, heartfelt and visually wonderful.
Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
Where Is Anne Frank spins around exceptionally engaging central characters, expresses the story’s unspeakable sadness with eloquence and sensitivity, and winningly captures the intelligence, humour and adolescent exuberance so evident in photographs of Anne Frank and in her writing.
Sheri Linden, The Hollywood Reporter
