Movie Info

Set in the aftermath of World War II, and based on the bestselling autobiographical novel "How Many Stars Twinkle in the Sky" by author Edith Bruck, Anita B tells the story of a world we wish we could believe in, a world where evil lurks at the edges, suppressed, and a bright but distant future awaits, like a good dream about to come true. Anita, a beautiful orphan of Auschwitz, arrives among her fellow displaced Jews at the home of her young Aunt Monika and Uncle Aron, whose life is spent screening off the memories of their own cruel losses. Anita, brimming with talent and life, soon finds herself caught up in a turbulent relationship where the very struggle to be free, and good, gives her the strength and opportunity to start a new life.(C) Official Site

Critic Reviews for Anita B.

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

Just as it seems on the verge of yielding a nuanced view of the Holocaust's emotional and psychological fallout, Anita B. recedes into platitudes and cliché.

The story in Anita B is rich but predictable, and for all the great themes layered throughout, Anita B is surprisingly monotonous.
