PROMISE AT DAWN LA PROMESSE DE L'AUBE

DRAMA / FRANCE / 2017 / 131 MINS / M

FRENCH AND POLISH WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES

Many people remember author and diplomat Romain Gary for his marriage to ingénue Jean Seberg (star of Godard’s 1960 classic, Breathless) – but Seberg was not his first obsession. In Gary’s own ‘fictionalised’ telling of his early life, he attributes his endearing yet eccentric mother for making him a success whilst simultaneously burdening him with her boundless maternal love.

Originally adapted by Jules Dassin in 1971, this second screen version of Promise at Dawn stars Pierre Niney (It Boy, AF FFF2014) as Gary and Charlotte Gainsbourg (Ismael’s Ghosts, AF FFF2018) as his mother, Nina. We’re thrown into a tumultuous trajectory that twists and turns across a difficult childhood in Poland, a sun-drenched adolescence in Nice and through to piloting adventures in Africa.

At every touchstone in Gary’s life, Nina leaves her ineffaceable mark. With boundless dreams and huge aspirations, she is the momentum that propels Gary forward, eventually culminating in the novel of Promise at Dawn that he feverishly writes as his life comes to a close during the Dia de los Muertos celebrations in Mexico.
