First of all, I love french cinema, and I've never seen a french movie that is bad or that has low making quality. And 'La promesse de l'aube' isn't the exception. It is completely engaging, wonderful and just... perfect!
The story and how the script tells it is excellent and real. It takes us along for many years, ages and times that the main character has passed through, and it never gets boring in any minute. It makes you care about him as if he was your friend, your brother or someone you appreciate a lot. And the photography that portrayed Romain Gary's words and the score that accompain it is great and magnificent.
The performances were devastatingly masterful. Pierre Niney is one of my favourites and of the most talented actors I've seen in my entire life and his job in this film confirms it even more. Charlotte Gainsbourg was also great and at times frightening at her role.
10/10 A total masterpiece that has to be seen by every cinephile. Thank you for reading!
