Miep Gies: Damn you all! You vile, rotten people! You think you own the world and everyone in it - you don't own the world! You'll never own it! And every day you're losing more and more of what you did own of it and thank God for that! Our day will come, and when it does, we'll make you pay... for everything! For everything you've done!

An interesting movie
30 June 2011 | by parbatshounakSee all my reviews

''The Attic: The Hiding of Anne Frank'' is really a very good and interesting movie about Anne Frank. I like the history of Anne Frank very much and I have seen six movies about Anne Frank, and I think after ''Anne Frank: The Whole Story'', ''The Attic: The Hiding of Anne Frank'' is the best Anne Frank movie. The movie is about Miep Gies and Anne Frank. It tells the story of how Miep helped to hide the Franks, the van Daans and Dr Dussel. I liked most of the casting. The main reason to like this film is that it shows in detail about the time the eight Jews were in hiding. It also shows what happened after the betrayal and arrest of the eight people hiding in the Annex. Yes, it doesn't show any concentration camp scenes, but it does have the scene where Miep attempts to free her friends from the Gestapo headquarters. It also shows how Otto Frank came back to Amsterdam after the war... The music and the casting was good. And finally I think I would like to give this film: 8 out of 10. Everyone who are interested about Anne Frank should watch this movie.
