The story is fantastic and it'll give you a warm, nice feeling. At the beginning of the movie, Anne receives a Diary from her parents on her birthday. She begins to write in it and tried to confide all the things she faces every single day in her life. She calls it 'Kitty' and treats it as a real friend. She didn't have much friend in her life so she puts her sorrows, sufferings, joys - everything in Kitty. After some months, she has to go to a hiding which she refers as the 'Secret Annexe'. There, she meets a new family - the van Daans. As the story continues, her life as a teenager, family affairs, relationships and sorrows reveal. It will surely make you moved!
The art/animation is horrible. I nearly puked; it could have been way..way better and make the anime more enjoyable.
The sound was nice and the voice actors were pretty involved into the characters.
The movie is too short for the character development. Some important parts are missing. Though, in the book, you'll definitely get involved into the characters, but in the anime, it's different. All the characters except for Anne has been kept under the cover!
You'll definitely like it. It will make you cry and moreover, make you nostalgic for some reason. Do watch it. ^^
