Considering the acting talent and the historical background, this was nothing more than a middling film.

an epic tale of love and war with a very serious message - The Promise review by IanF

Spoiler Alert
11/01/2018

A great, thought provoking film. The Armenian genocide by Turkey during WW1 is not widely enough known. Because the Turks 'got away with' murdering 1.5 million people - it led directly to the Jewish holocaust in WW2. It is also a very touching love story. It is presented in big scale, Holywood style. A must see.
