Igor, aged 15, and his father Roger deal in housing and peddling illicit labor in the outlying districts of Liege, Belgium. Scams, lies and swindling rule their lives. When one of his father’s illegal workers gets injured on the job and asks Igor to promise to take care of his wife and baby, Igor finds himself at a crossroad. He wants to keep the promise, but the price would be to betray his father.
For me, this movie is one of the best movie released in the year 1996. It is my favorite drama movie because parts felt very similar to my life experience. I was so emotionally destroyed that I saw the entire movie three times on the internet almost in one go.
I’m big fan of drama movies. Everytime I watch this movie online, I really enjoy the music, it is just pure soul of that movie. An movie highly valued for me.
I’m not a true fan of drama, but I’m like that too! I have not found La Promesse movie full elsewhere so I uploaded it here, and now everybody can see this movie online for free.
