Uneven faith-based drama has lots of war/Holocaust violence.

Excellent film. True story. Wonderfully shot. Loved John Rhys Davies as well as the many fine, Chicago based actors. A++

I must admit that I probably wouldn't have seen Return To The Hiding Place if a friend had not invited me. But I am so glad he did. I was captivated by the opening scene and riveted to the screen all the way through to the closing credits. I can not understand after seeing it, how anyone could give this movie a negative rating. Return To The Hiding Place chronicles the true story of the young resistance fighters to the German occupation in WW2 told from Hans Poley's perspective. The acting is authentic, believable and incredibly well done, from the young students, to the Nazis', to the Jews concealed in Corrie Ten Boom's shop. I can't remember seeing a "Christian" movie this well acted with such quality of cinematography. And I have not enjoyed any Hollywood movie as much as this one in years. The close up filming gives you a feeling as if you are right there with the students and in the "Hiding place." Some of the issues the characters deal with are complex and the movie gives us a realistic look at the struggles the Dutch faced in making their decisions. I wish all teenagers could see this movie (may not be suitable for children ) to see a true story of how evil and gullible humans can be. Contrasted to the ordinary people who because of their faith sacrificed greatly, some with their own lives to save others. It is truly a moving and inspirational film. Take your teen and have a long discussion about the movie afterward.
