In Anastasia you expect there to be a few musical numbers, a battle of
good and evil, and romance. Well there is that but, it comes out so

Anastasia is a movie about a girl named Anya who lost nearly all of her
memory about her past and her family. Now with the help of a con-man
named Dimitri shes going to Paris to learn the truth about her past.
While on this journey an evil sorcerer (who's the reason her family
died in the first place) is out bring an end to the Romanav line
forever. So as Dimitri and Anya grow closer to learning the truth about
her past they must also make a difficult choice about what to do as
they begin to fall in love.
Anastasia is a movie that just about the entire family will enjoy. It
is light-hearted, filled with laughter, beautiful music that will make
you want to dance and sing, and adventure to keep you excited
throughout the film. This is a film I recommend to everyone who wants
to find good whole-some family entertainment to watch, because
Anastasia is perfect for that very reason.
