This was absolutely dire with astonishingly bad acting & accents (everyones different & worse than the next persons) which made the film not only embarrassingly cringeworthy but incredibly difficult to understand & unwatchable. I honestly could not sit through it. Absolute dirge.

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.

This film is a biography of Miep Gies and concentrates surprisingly lightly on Anne herself. The 2001 or BBC versions depict the story of Anne's hiding much better.

Saying that, the film is interesting enough as it shows a different angle on the situation, and just how crucial Miep was to their hiding

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.

Many people cast aside Anne Franks story but it is facinating when you study it. Miep is the true star of the story as she kept Anne alive for as long as she did!!!!!
