RETURN TO THE HIDING PLACE, US version - has drastic changes from the 2011, UK version. It is now 1:38 (instead of 2:35), includes plot re-writes and completely new full scenes, re-filming, complete re-editing, new music scoring and re-arranging. Some subplots were removed and new elaborate scenes were added to enrich this story based on true events. Half of the retained film content was drastically reduced altering the story from the original focus being on Piet Hartog and Aty to now follow the life of Hans Poley as the chronicler of the story, with a completely new surprise ending resulting in an entirely new film, soon to be released. RETURN TO THE HIDING PLACE tells the exciting story of Dutch Resistance fighter Hans Poley in World War II, who found refuge at Corrie ten Boom's house from the 1974 movie THE HIDING PLACE. Hans defies the new Nazi commandant and escapes with his life. He takes refuge in Corrie ten Boom's house, which is crowded with Jewish refugees and becomes part of her teen age army. Hans gets a false identity and joins the Dutch Resistance. As the Nazis commit atrocity after atrocity, the danger for Hans and his new compatriots increases tenfold. See more »
Some People Are Reviewing an Unapproved European Version
This movie was previously released in an unapproved edition. The new movie has new scenes and has deleted some unnecessary scenes and subplots, with new editing.
The U.S. version is being released later this year and is very good. IMDb should do a separate page on the U.S. version, but they have been unresponsive to this, which is very strange. People should see the reportedly much improved U.S. version before dissing the movie, and the ratings should be re-set for the U.S. opening, which will then be sent around the world.
RETURN TO THE HIDING PLACE is superbly written. There are several fascinating subplots that move the story forward. There are several romances that break your heart. Within the strong plot structure, the movie highlights true story after true story of people willing to sacrifice their lives for others, even those who don't like them. The direction, cinematography, and music are excellent.
