Easter Promises

David Cronenberg’s Eastern Promises portraits the relations within the slavic mafia. After the birth of a baby whose mother died giving life to her, a foreign nurse tries to find the family of this newly born, without knowing where she is puting her feet into. Beautifully photographed by long time Cronenberg’s DP Peter Suschitzky, he gives the cold look of the Eastern Europe feel. A long research on the tattoos used in the film, has been done on Viggo Mortensen’ s suggestion during his own research for the role. Featuring Viggo Mortensen, Naomi Watts, and French actor Vincent Cassel.

  1. Awesome movie and it’s totally been under the radar. Viggo is stellar in this role. Shouldn’t be compared so closely to “History of Violence” but definitely a great companion piece. Includes one of the great fight scenes I’ve ever seen.
