Critic Reviews for A Promise
Despite decent performances, a promising dramatic set-up leads to little of real interest.
The anguish of the lovers' decade-long separation can't be evoked in a matter of minutes ...
The actors are smoothly professional and the production feels polished. But it's hard to recommend a romance without passion, no matter how pretty it looks.
The magnetism between these stiff nonstarters wouldn't stick to a fridge, especially when the war-ex-machina forces them apart for years but the only credible passing of time is our own.
This awkward, passionless drama conveys neither the sensuality nor the drawn-out sense of longing required by its period tale of a young secretary who falls in love with his employer's wife.
Audience Reviews for A Promise
I watched the beginning and was bored, I skipped around the middle and was bored, I jumped to the end and was still bored. Seriously, this was an overly dramatic bit of sappy fluff.
There's a sense of serenity and beauty to this tragic love story. Despite the performances being pretty good, it remains boring and uninteresting.
A Promise is almost as much an exercise in patience for its viewers as it is for Friedrich and Lotte.
