The Promise –

If you, like I , enjoy foreign films, and are accustomed to reading subtitles, use this skill in this movie.  Tho the subject is a good one, the Armenian genocide, the dialogue and complete lack of acting ability on the part of two of the three leads makes it almost impossible not to walk out of the theater – so I pretended I was reading the words rather than listening to the forced, unrealistic, and poorly acted script.   The scenery was beautiful, the costumes at times breathtaking, but thats all the good I can muster.
