I’m interested into Jewish tradition, as it is one of the traditions which has been closest with our traditions in Christianity.
Most of the old testament is actually a book considered as a holy by the Jews as well, just like with us Christians.
Thus I’m quite interested into what the Jewish tradition used to be and is today.
Knowing Jewish tradition gives me another way to compare my faith (the Orthodox Christianity) to the jewish judaism.
In that manner of thought, just recently I googled for the top most popupar Jewish movies and one of them that I come up with was called The Diary of Anne Frank
The version I’ve watched is actually a bit more modern since there is also a version of 1959.
The movie story line is based on a Dutch book literally translated as The Diary of a Young Girl
The movie is about a jewish young girl that in her teenage and is growing in a hiding somewhere in Amsterdam surrounded by her family and a couple of other jewish families.
The whole action develops during the progress of the Second World War (1942-1944).
The story tries to presents the hardness of the Jewish life in this days by taking a close look into the daily life of this few families that were hiding in Amsterdam in order to escape the Nazi’s concentration camps or execution.
The movie triggers a lot of emotions but generally is nothing special I actually expected a bit more, since I’ve red some positive reviews before I watched it.
However there is also good things in the movie among which is the excellent actors play.
The rest however is nothing special and doesn’t expose much the Jewish tradition and culture (as I’ve expected), at least it doesn’t get into detail of Jewish tradition like the Fiddler on the Roof musical movie
Anyhow if you’re of this people that like so much the slow progressing moviews without too much action, then you might like it.
Here I include a short movie from youtube to give you a general idea about the movie:
