          The film treats The Hermitage as a living being. It tells the story of the daily life of the museum today continuously leaving the here and now to retrace two and a half centuries. A wonderful complex of buildings with the largest collection of paintings in the world. St. Petersb...urg and the Hermitage were a meeting point for foreign artists, architects and intellectuals creating connections through art and culture. The history of the museum is marked by the acquisitions of the enlightened Empress Catherine II, whose personality has continued to fascinate art historians and critics over the centuries. Toni Servillo leads us on this journey through cultural bridges between places and distant civilizations. Bridges form a symbolic visual element, that will be repeated in the narrative.

          Anne Frank was born in Frankfurt on 12th June 1929 and this year she would have been 90 years old. The documentary film tells the story of her life through the pages of her diary: an extraordinary text that has made the tragedy of Nazism known to millions of readers all over the ...world, and revealed the brilliant, enlightening intelligence of a young girl who wanted to become a writer. Annes story is intertwined with that of five Holocaust survivors, teenage girls just like her, with the same ideals, the same desire to live, the same courage: Arianna Szrenyi, Sarah Montard, Helga Weiss and sisters Andra and Tatiana Bucci. Helen Mirren will introduce audiences to Annes story through the words in her diary. The set will be her room in the secret refuge in Amsterdam, reconstructed in every detail. Off the set, a young girl, will lead us on a journey to get to know the places that were part of Anne Franks short life and her feelings. She wants to know about the story of the Jewish teenager who became a symbol of the greatest tragedy of the 20th Century, and she also speaks to us through social networks. In fact, photos and posts are her language, and in this way she gives us her interpretation of what she discovers, sees, from the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in Germany (where Anne and her sister Margot died) to the Holocaust Memorial in Paris, up to and including her visit to the secret refuge in Amsterdam.
