‘Where is Anne Frank’ begins with a miracle, Kitty, the imaginary friend to whom Anne Frank writes in her famous Diary, comes to life in present-day Amsterdam.
Unaware that 75 years have gone by, Kitty is convinced that if she's alive, then Anne must be alive too. It's the beginning of an adventurous journey. It's the story of Kitty's quest across contemporary Europe searching for her beloved friend.
The flashback events of Frank’s life are elegantly interlaced with Kitty’s journey and though a modern refugee subplot feels slightly ungainly, Folman never once loses sight of the overwhelming horror of the Holocaust.
A bold attempt to combine family entertainment and politics in animated form.
