Alternate Versions

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.

Very touching!
14 April 2013 | by nursevicki47See all my reviews

After having the distinct privilege of being cast in the play "The Hiding Place", I had the marvelous opportunity to attend a special viewing of Return To The Hiding Place.

After reading many of the reviews, it saddens me to see anyone rate this anything less that great! The budget that was available for this film was not all that large and to have made this movie on 'what they had', I think they did a fabulous job! The story is just so inspiring, as is The Hiding Place. I hope and pray that this movie will be viewed by anyone who either has or has not heard of the Ten Boom family and their story. It is life changing for sure.

My 13 year old granddaughter attended Return To The Hiding Place with me and was very inspired and now aspires to live her life as the young people in the movie however she is able.

If you get the opportunity to see this movie, by all means, go see it! You will not be disappointed and it will quite possibly change your views of the world. It is definitely a blessing!
