Synopsis
A PROMISE is a documentary reflection of a young couple on questions about relationship, marriage and divorce today. What keeps two people together at all? Love can be stifled under the pressure of this contract, or it can blossom into a bond of unimagined depth when faced with eternity. Why do two people choose to make a promise to each other? Levin Peter and Elsa Kremser, both filmmakers and a young couple, look for answers to these questions. A PROMISE is a documentary reflection on relationships, marriage and divorce. Levin got married when he was 20 and divorced four years later. But it was only after his divorce that he began to ask himself what marriage really means.
In the new relationship to Elsa the impetus to examine this in film aroused. Driven by a very personal story, the film interweaves an ensemble of different couples and concepts of marriage.
A PROMISE gently explores a web of hopes and dreams, fear and dependency, loyalty and trust.
