The Dead Bride [הכלה המתה]

Author(s): Yossi Izraeli
Izraeli’s adaptation of Anne Frank’s diary. A tour guide oversees the lives of the hideout residents. Anna expresses her thoughts and feelings—her complex relationship with her mother, her feelings toward Peter. They listen with hope to news of the war on the radio. But the news is not good. Finally, Anna’s mother dresses her in a wedding dress, and she dances with the tour guide.
