From his difficult childhood in Poland to his adolescence under the sun in Nice to his exploits as an airman in Africa during World War II… Romain Gary lived an extraordinary life. Yet he owed this determination to live a thousand lives, to become a great man and famous writer, to his mother Nina. For it was the overwhelming love of this endearing, eccentric woman that would make him into one of the major novelists of the 20th century, a man who led a life filled with adventure, passion and mystery. But her boundless maternal love would also be his burden to bear for life… The film “Promise at Dawn” is the cinema adaptation of Romain Gary’s cult novel.
