The Promise

I have just returned from a truly incredible, very emotional cinematic experience. The film is called The Promise and tells the story of the Armenian genocide, conducted, yet still denied, by the Turkish government during the Second World War. It is told through the very personal relationships of several key characters. With themes of love, betrayal, jealousy, moral decline and redemption, this is an epic story, lovingly told and wonderfully performed by the entire cast. The Turkish government have tried to prevent this film from being shown, claiming that the genocide is a lie. You can form your own opinion.
