PROMISE AT DAWN. France. 2017. 131 mins. English, French, Polish, Spanish with subtitles. Narrative.
Nominated for five Cesar awards (French Oscars), this is a sweeping adaptation of French novelist Romain Gary’s beloved memoir of exotic globetrotting in his 20 year extraordinary career as writer and diplomat, from childhood poverty in Poland to his exploits as a WWII aviator. Much is seen through the problematic relationship with his domineering, eccentric mother, portrayed stunningly by known French actress, Charlotte Gainsbourg. This magnificent saga features meticulous cinematography and production design.
This program is made possible by the Everett Jewish Life Center.
