Promise at Dawn

CTC Drama

Sorry, there are no upcoming session times for Promise at Dawn at Dendy Canberra

Synopsis

“A melange of pathos, comedy and ripe Camembert…  an old-fashioned, triple-decker jambon et fromage sandwich of a movie; it’s cinema that fills you up.” — Variety

At any stage, Romain Gary’s life was exceptional: from his impoverished childhood in Poland, and sun-soaked adolescence in Nice, to flying school in Africa during WWII. But he owes his compulsion for fame and desire for becoming a great writer to his mother, Nina, and to the unbridled and often stifling love she showered upon him throughout her life. French director Eric Barbier’s sweeping adaptation of the life of one of the 20th century’s greatest Jewish authors features two outstanding French actors, Charlotte Gainsbourg (Melancholia) and Pierre Niney, in the leading roles.

The film is in French language with English subtitles
