The film is a sequel to the TV-series of the same title and tells the further story of Anna, now on her way to become a professional ballerina. She becomes the student of a famous teacher at the national ballet theatre in Munich, and later is asked to come and dance in New York with yet another famous ballet master. However, she is prepared to move across the Atlantic only if her dancing partner David, on whom she has a big crush, can come with her. Her relationship with this new man in her life leaves her faithful friend Reiner, who loves her as much as ever, jealous. A tragic accident changes everything.

pretty good
30 December 2000 | by bioscoopzaalSee all my reviews

This film is the theatrical follow-up to a very popular German TV-series (also called "Anna"), about a young girl who wants to make it as a prima ballerina. The plot is pretty predictable (and comparable to many other a dancing-film), but that doesn't really matter, since the dancing and the charm of the main leads (especially non-professional actress Silvia Seidel as Anna) save the day. A worthy sequel to the even better TV-series. Witty and charming. 7/10
