Oscar Isaac and Christian Bale Experience Love and War in New Trailer for ‘The Promise’

2 March 2017 1:26 PM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Shaping up to be the kind of sweeping romantic war epic Hollywood doesn’t seem all that interested in making today, The Promise follows an Armenian medical student (Oscar Isaac), an artist (Charlotte Le Bon), and a worldly American journalist (Christian Bale) who form a love triangle amid the chaos of the First World War. Directed by Terry George (Hotel Rwanda), following a Tiff premiere, it’ll arrive next month, and the new theatrical trailer has arrived.

We said in our review, “Terry George, whose Hotel Rwanda also dealt with a historical genocide, shoots the film with visual care. With the help of cinematographer Javier Aguirresarobe (Vicky Cristina Barcelona, The Road), he sets the scene capturing a vast, alluring Middle Eastern landscape, filled with deserts and mountains. The battle scenes are also immaculately shot by George, giving the film a grit that might be hiding under Aguirresarobe’s romantic photography. »

Featuring a terrific lead cast, lensing by Javier Aguirresarobe (“The Road,” “The Others,” “Vicky Cristina Barcelona”), and direction by Terry George (“Hotel Rwanda“), it’s a shame that “The Promise” was such a crushing disappointment when we saw it at Tiff this fall. However, there are few films that have been set against the backdrop of the Armenian genocide, which is perhaps one small credit one can give to the film.
