Critic Reviews for Promised
It's not a particularly stylish film... But there's a simmering good humor to it and a sense of reality that turns its ordinariness into a virtue.
Promised lacks sophistication and craft ... Still, there's something charming about this film ... an imperfect movie that nonetheless captures something that feels real and valuable.
There is a migrant story here perhaps worth telling, as well as a study of changing socio-cultural mores and the rise of feminism, but it's all so drably done that even the staunchest Aussie cinema groupie might struggle to care...
While 'Promised' may not have the depth, it certainly has the heart.
