Profile of Promises

The mood of Promises is thought provoking, contemplative, and sincere. The plot centers around wartime life, politics, and human nature. It is a documentary movie. In approach, Promises is serious and realistic. The pacing is slow. It takes place, at least partly, in a village. Promises is set in Israel. It happens in contemporary times.

San Francisco Chronicle
