Une Promesse

Patrice Leconte France, 2013

jooley's rating of the film A Promise

There is something confortingly traditional about the concept - slow, understated, while attempting to portray that fabled allconsuming, allconquering love in a most ungratuitous way. However, it shoots itself in the foot, coming off as boring and lackluster as Holywood would like you to think, in part due to the characters whose conduct and show of emotion range from nonsensical to infuriatingly stereotypical.
