Trivia

Lamya's zebra-striped high heels were actually too small for Franck's feet to fit in. As a result it finally was up to cinematographer 'David Jacques' to foot double Franck's feet during the close-up shot on the footbridge. See more »

Goofs

A hung-up crew member's jacket plus some crew members' feet are clearly visible on the right top corner of the screen when Ludovic turns around and smiles at Lamya at the end of the film. See more »

Frederic Chane-Son has created a small masterpiece with Les promesses de l'aube!
16 June 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am very, very happy to have just caught this movie last week at the NewFest LGBT Film Festival in New York. Director Frederic Chane-Son has written and directed and beautifully enigmatic and sexy short film.

The audience wonders who the characters are in relation to each other. The avoidance of obviousness is perfect for the pace of the film. The main actors are sexy and easy on the eyes.

Speaking of eyes, this film is directed with much style and artistry.

I look forward to more work from Frederic Chane-Son. He is a true artist! Bravo, Frederic! I can't wait to see what you come up with in the future.
