This would only be possible if you were 18 years old: Anne Frank could be your role in a film. The first Dutch film was about Anne Frank, the author of the famous diary. Aiko Mila Beemsterboer it’s in Anne Frank: My Best Friend happen.
A film taken from Hannah Goslar’s special perspective. MetroAiko spoke three days prior to the film’s release in cinemas (that is, today, Thursday 9th September).
As Aiko Metro on the phone, she is sitting in an Amsterdam café. Fresh, fruity and this is just a few days after the premier of “her” film Anne Frank: My Best FriendThe night before, we were at the Tuschinski cinema in Prague. “Due to Corona there was no after-party so we were back at the hotel quite early.” Metro’sA review can be found here.
Aiko (Arnhem), 18 years old, has spent half of her life as an actress. She had her first lead role in the film three years ago. Fighting girl. She was the child of divorcées parents and is introduced to a Kickboxing school in a suburb of Amsterdam. She was able to become a kickboxer in 2020 thanks to Also, what is love?Nominated for the Golden Calf Best Supporting Actress Award. Many know her from Eyeballs. She was the intern Lieke this year.

However, Anne Frank can be interpreted. It is quite an accomplishment. Aiko Mila Bemsterboer was very happy with the Tuschinski reaction. “Many people were very moved. Although I didn’t feel any tension before I went to the cinema, once I was inside, I knew there would be people who were going to see it. It’s real. The nerves set in. But because of the emotion of the film and the many positive reactions, it turned out to be a nice evening.”
Anne Frank is, however, as we have already said. Anne Frank: My Best FriendPlaying is something that’s quite extraordinary. Aiko visited Bergen-Belsen in the Second World War. Aiko was only 15 years old when she died there. “The feeling in the camp I visited was intense. You hardly dare to talk in such a place.”
“I immediately thought it was a huge honor to play Anne Frank,” says Aiko about her role. “When I heard it, I thought it was right, but I also immediately felt a lot of pressure. Many people are familiar with her so I was forced to give her justice. I noticed that Anne Frank was not portrayed in the script the same way as Anne Frank. She is almost always portrayed as a high-ranking icon that represents the Second World War. This film shows her as Hannah Goslar’s girlfriend. Hannah survived Bergen-Belsen but is now a resident of Israel. In Anne Frank: My Best FriendAn Anne of flesh & blood, you will see. With a beautiful side, but also a less beautiful side.”
When you watch the film, you immediately get Aiko’s words. The film presents you with a very woman, a mean teenager. That’s a Star of David on her clothing. Anne, who was very fragile and needed five hours of make-up in concentration camp. A camp fence is where a girl hears her friend whisper “God will help us” to her. He then whimpers and despairingly reacts with, “How is that possible?” “I haven’t had anything to eat in days” Aiko: “It is also different from how I knew Anne Frank from the media. I felt that I needed to find the right balance in how I would position her. It is not possible to lose Anne Frank as we all know. And at the same time, we had to offer a new perspective of how her friend saw her.”
Or all the seniors positive Anne Frank: My Best FriendWe will see how she responds. Young people will be attracted to Hannah Goslar’s approach. They see Anne Frank, a young person that they can be. It’s amazing how horrible it can end with such an amusing gag. Hannah Goslar is portrayed by great acting Josephine ArendsenAiko is two years older than Aiko. The two lead actresses share a close relationship. “I got to know Josephine at the auditions. Anne and Hannah like our dynamic. When playing, we gave each other lots of energy. It’s a great way to learn from my opponent and it makes me an actor. Josephine loves it too. We match.”
Anne Frank: My Best FriendIt was shot in Amsterdam and Hungary. A concentration camp has been recreated in Eastern Bloc countries, especially for film. Aiko: “We were just playing in Hungary for a week last March and then corona came. Cast and crew had to travel back to the Netherlands from one day to another. The film was finally completed in Hungary. The last scene between Josephine and myself was actually the last. It felt like we had worked very hard towards that moment.” Go see it, is Metro’sTip by the way He is intense while leaving much to the imagination.
