Empires fall, love survives. When Michael (Oscar Isaac), a brilliant medical student, meets Ana (Charlotte Le Bon), their shared Armenian heritage sparks an attraction that explodes into a romantic rivalry between Michael and Ana's boyfriend Chris (Christian Bale), a famous American photojournalist dedicated to exposing political truth. As the Ottoman Empire crumbles into war-torn chaos, their conflicting passions must be deferred while they join forces to get their people to safety and survive themselves.

The Promise, a movie where two lovers, Michael and Ana, bond over over their common heritage, even when troubles arise. However, Ana’s boyfriend, Chris, an American focused on revealing the truth, does not seek to it just yet.
The movie starts off the day before World War 1, where the Ottoman Turkish Empire was on the edge of collapsing. Due to this, Assyrians and Armenians minorities lay between the rivalry. On October 29, 1914, Turkey enters the war, resulting in an Armenian genocide. This relates to AP Hug because many Armenians were slaughtered, also known as a genocide. Armenians were forced to flee their land in hopes of not dying, making them refugees. “The Promise” relates to AP Hug because although two lovers were formed, they had to survive through a genocide of their own heritage, thus their ethnicity group becoming refugees.
Overall, I rate this move a 3/5.
