Can’t think of anything more diverse. The film My Best Friend Anne Frank and the Jewish stars of last weekend at a demonstration in Amsterdam. Yet – unfortunately – both exist.
My Best Friend Anne Frank appears in Dutch cinemas on Thursday. It’s a remarkable film that seems almost unbelievable when you consider the fact that it is the first film about Anne Frank made in the Netherlands. Theater and musical performances were already performed in the Netherlands about Anne Frank, the famous Second World War girl. Just like a YouTube series Anne Frank Video Diary. The teenager in the video was not a girl who kept a diary but a vlogger. This find was a hit with young people worldwide.
Also My Best Friend Anne Frank has an original perspective. Ben Sombogaart’s film is told through Hannah Goslar, her Amsterdam bosom friend. Goslar (1928), was also detained by the Germans. Anne ended up in the Bergen-Belsen concentration camps. It wasn’t something she knew for a while. But a meeting – albeit with a separation of two camp parts – did occur. Hannah Goslar is alive and well. She lives in Israel. in De Telegraph she previously expressed her admiration for the film. She is glad that attention continues to be paid to Anne Frank and the Second World War. But Goslar also said:In real life it was worse, much worse.”
Anne Frank and Hannah Goslar are played by Aiko Beemsterboer (18) and Josephine Arendsen (16). Roeland Frank and Lottie Heckingman (father Otto Frank’s parents) are other major roles. Eva Jinek hosted a talk show last night featuring the lead actresses. that fragment see you here.
Aiko and Josephine, as a couple, are a wonderful find. They are not noticeably older than Anne Frank and Hannah Goslar due to their age difference. They were two years younger at the beginning of filming, which was halted for a while due to corona. Aiko Beemsterboer stood out before (recently in The Luizenmother). Metro Josephine Arendsen had never seen before, but what a talent. The first time Amsterdam had ever been carefree. The terror of the Germans. Bergen-Belsen’s horrifying horrors. It’s also possible to believe her crazy risky decision to visit Anne Frank in order to support her friend, who is severely handicapped. Anyone can visualize Anne Frank. Hannah Goslar, however, is difficult to picture. This look will have moviegoers imagining Josephine. It’s very nice.
Director Sombogaart earlier stated, “When making the film, I always kept it in mind that an audience of young people should also find the story touching.” Anne and Hannah are both 13-year-old girls who can be easily identified by young audiences. A story about two teenage girls living in a concentration camp is a great way to entertain the imagination. Sombogaart also leaves the struggles between the ladies. It was a fight over sexeducation. The film shows Anne Frank’s enthusiasm and sometimes irritation-inducing enthusiasm. The story isn’t only for young people. Also the Metroreporter came out of the cinema somewhat quietly after a press presentation.
It is always good to think about how fortunate we are now, in comparison to the horrible times of World War 2. Some groups of people have struggled for years in this period. This was made clear at the Amsterdam demonstration that brought together around 20,000 people. People – from the entertainment world, those who can’t buy a house – who have their reasons to make themselves heard in various areas.
However, that people with Jewish stars on their clothes walked among them… Of course that went beyond all limits. It became a protest for people who felt genuine concern. Gone relevance. These Jewish stars are the reason. People who are able to do anything they wish, so long as they put a cotton swab in the nose. For people who need to wear a cap and a comfortable, warm train. The train that gets them to their final vote. Those people would My Best Friend Anne Frank must go see.
