Movie Info

Vincent Gallo directed, wrote, produced, edited, and scored this evocative independent drama of the unusual relationship between two troubled souls. Mallory (Delfine Bafort) is a beautiful woman who had learned she has only a short time to live, and wants to find someone who can help her make the transition from life to death. Mallory approaches Kevin (Vincent Gallo), who makes his living as a killer for hire, and asks him to look after her remains from the time of her death to her cremation and the scattering of her ashes. Kevin agrees, and takes a job at a funeral home to better understand the process, but as this assignment forces him to look upon his relationship with mortality in a new way, he also ponders his interaction with Mallory and other women in his life. Promises Written In Water was an official selection at the 2010 Venice Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Top Critic

As ephemeral as its title, the film is risky, limpid, and with a Borzagean delicacy flashing from under its Warhol-Eustache-Garrel grain.
