Thanks to the smart dialogue, heartfelt vibe, and winning performances, the undeniable soft-focus of Promised (it’s a disappointingly less-than-damning discussion of such an essentially horrid practice) never becomes overly problematic, with the film ultimately fixing as one more for the heart than the head.

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.
