Anne Frank Book vs Movie

In the movie Anne Frank it was very interesting. At first I noticed it really wasn’t the same as the book. The Van Danns had different last names and some people changed. I thought that the movie was good because I could see how everything was and I was able to have a picture in my head of what was going on. I liked seeing how it was back then and what they went through. In the beginning of the movie and book Anne was pretty wealthy. Once the war started they went into hiding with the “Van Danns” and the dentist “Mr.Drussel”. After hiding for a while the war was soon about to end. Anne waited for this day for a long time. She couldn’t wait to see her friends again and she wanted to get her diary published. Just before the war was over the Germans caught them. They were taken to a concentration camp. They thought it was ok and they kept their hopes up until they were all called to get sent to another one. This was a life and death situation now. Were you going to live or die? When they arrived to this place they were thrown harshly off of the trains and onto the ground as they were separated. Anne was separated from her father Pim who she loved dearly. She went off with her mother and Margot. They were forced to take everything off of them. They’re jewelry and clothes, and this after they were cruelly branded. I think that this was very mean. The overall movie was good though it was interesting and almost exciting to see what would happen to them next. I’m glad I got an opportunity to see both the video and read the

    During World War II, the Franks and the Van Daans were hiding in a small area of two to three rooms, with a single window, in the attic of an office building in Amsterdam. In her diary, Anne refers to it as the "secret annex." For two years, these close quarters serve as a shelter and protection for the families against the Nazi enemy.

    There are some movies that are adapted from the novel such as Harry Potter, Da Vinci Code, Twilight Saga, The Hunger Games and Lagenda Budak Setan. What are the differences between watching a movie and reading a novel? There are some contrasts between the two actions. One of the differences is by watching a movie, you just need to sit and relax. It is very easy since you only need to watch it and understands it. Furthermore, you can watch the movie while doing something else such as eating or exercising.

    The Book Thief is an encouraging tale of a fictional girl named Liesel. Liesel was raised during a time of great pain and suffering: Nazi Germany.
