Reviews

Television dramatisation of the memoirs of Miep Gies, the woman who aided the family of Anne Frank in their attempt to hide from the Nazis in the Second World War. Gies (Mary Steenburgen) is the business partner of Otto Frank (Paul Scofield); when he takes his family of eight into hiding in the Secret Annexe, it is Gies who brings them food. As their only link with the outside world, Gies brings the Franks support and encouragement, and when they are finally betrayed and captured, it is she who retrieves Anne's account of her days in hiding.

Format: DVD
The well-known story of Anne Frank and the others hiding in that attic in Amsterdam for years, is of course as heartbreaking as ever. This film's different angle of putting their helper Miep Gies in the main role rather than Anne herself, should make it a valuable addition to our knowledge about the terrible events of those years. Unfortunately, it fails badly. Mary Steenburgen's performance as Miep Gies is unbelieveably wooden and often overacted to an almost comic degree. Neither is she alone in wooden acting, although in fairness not all characters are as badly played as hers. It does not help much that almost everybody speaks with horribly fake accent, Dutch and Germans alike. Oh yes, the Germans. In the film, they are all portrayed as sneering creeps, reminding me of those wartime propaganda films. Realism is not always on display either. At the end of the film, when Hans Frank (Paul Scofield) returns from concentration camp, he looks exactly like he did before he was arrested. Even his hairstyle has not changed! At only 95 minutes, this is not a very long film, yet it seemed to go on forever. Sadly, this film is an opportunity missed. Don't waste your time or money on it.

Enjoyed the portrayal of Anne Frank in this drama. Very gripping and well produced. Having visited Anne Frank's House, it was brought to life in this film.

Since my daughter was asked to view a film on Anne Frank as an introduction to studies of WW2 in Elementary, which she does not by any means have any easy time with since it deeply effects her feelings, I had to choose carefully. I must say that this dve tells the tragic tale truthfully but doesn't have any horrific scenes that would be too much for a child, of course their are some upsetting and very sad scenes due what the poor Jewish people had to go through. I would recommend this for those that have to keep childrens viewing in mind.
