when a promise is kept
18 January 2005 | by (Brisbane, Australia) – See all my reviews

Guneris' wife has just died and after her cremation, the old man goes to the police and asks to be taken into custody after he satisfies his conscience by confessing to murders he committed as a young man, 52 years previously. At this time, Guneris' infant child died of malaria and at the same time a rare gem came into his possession. A group of thugs somehow found out about it and ransacked his house looking for it. They then molested Guneris' wife after trying her to a tree. After enduring this horrific time, she escapes and sets Guneris free too, but when the thugs try to catch them again, Guneris kills them and makes his wife promise that it will not be revealed until one of them dies. This award-winning film is directed by Bennette Rathnayake and stars Joe Abeywickrema, Jackson Anthony and Sangeetha Weerarathna. (From Sri Lanka, in Sinhalese and English, English subtitles)
