Film (Re)View – The Promise

A heartfelt and harrowing tale of the invasion of Armenia by Turkey in WWII, and the senseless destruction of so many lives for no other reason than being on the wrong side.

The love story between the three leads is so very sad and something many of us can identify with, as Chris is in love with a woman who no longer loves him. Ana and Michael, torn apart by the war, are brought back together in horrific circumstances.

The ending, though heartbreaking, is probably the simplest and best, from a writer’s point of view, otherwise you are into the whole love triangle issue and who will win. It isn’t good to leave a story unresolved as it leaves readers unhappy and dissatisfied!
