Eastern Promises Movie Reviews
User reviews on Eastern Promises
This movie is definitely worth seeing. Viggo Mortensen is a very convincing Russian mobster. The only disappointing part of the movie is the ambiguous & somewhat far fetched ending.
A thriller that is gruesome at times and tender at others. Story involves Anna (Naomi Watts) - a British midwife, who helps a dying Russian girl give birth to a baby. The girlÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s diary survives her, and when Anna seeks answers in it she becomes entangled with the Russian mob. There are some wonderful performances by the actors especially Viggo Mortensen who plays a mysterious and charismatic driver for one of the crime families. Contains an interesting theme about flesh vs. the sole and whether oneÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s appearance can accurately reflect their true identity.
