Promise at Dawn


At any stage, Romain Gary͛s life was exceptional: from his impoverished childhood in Poland, and sun-soaked adolescence in Nice, to flying school in Africa during WWII. But he owes his compulsion for fame and desire for becoming a great writer to his mother, Nina, and to the unbridled and often stifling love she showered upon him throughout her life. French director Eric Barbier͛s sweeping adaptation of the life of one of the 20th century͛s greatest Jewish authors features two outstanding French actors, Charlotte Gainsbourg (Melancholia) and Pierre Niney, in the leading roles.
