PROMISE, THE is in the KIDS FIRST! Film Festival - it may not be a regular, endorsed title
The indie animated film The Promise is one of the most beautiful and compelling movies I have ever seen. It is fascinating, with a conflict running throughout the entire film, and has beautiful animation. The characters are richly defined, and the voice acting is brilliant.

The storyline is about a thief that is forced to make a promise. I like the hopefulness of the story, and found that compelling. At every moment, I wondered what was going to happen next. The entire story sizzles with conflict, making me wonder what would happen next.

This film had impressive animation - simple, but beautiful with a hidden depth to the story. I especially like the shots at the beginning, which depicts a cold setting and later, the growing flowers, which are richly defined. The film looks beautiful, thanks to its beautiful animation. The editing is well done, especially in the montage when the character is stealing.

What attire that the main character wears immediately shows the audience a lot about her and the environment she lives in. The background are brilliant. The first set is a city with dark gray tones which gives it a depressive mood. The next is a flowering city, bright and colorful, carrying a sense of hope that made me very happy. The final set is the same city as the opening one, but a lighter gray.

The background music and sound have a great effect on the film. My favorite is the music used when the city starts flowering, bringing with it a hopeful tone. The music drives the action of the film by making the events seem more hopeful and exciting.

The characters include a young girl, an old lady and a boy. The narrator's voice, which is my favorite, is very well acted. The other voice acting, which is minimal, is also well done. There are two messages in this film. The first is that people can always change for the better. The second message is that humanity must care for the environment. You should know that it does have some negative behavior - nothing violent. One borderline inappropriate moment is that the protagonist steals to survive. It also shows the main character being stolen from again. Plus, it shows kids doing risky things that kids might imitate. The film made me want to learn more about the environment and what exactly I can do to help the environment. My favorite part of the film is the moment where the city starts flowering and the music swells.

The film has some star power in Katie Leung who plays the thief, Olivette Cole-Wilson and Shobhit Piasa.

I give The Promise 5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 8 to 18, plus adults. The film is beautiful and has a compelling message that everyone needs to hear. Reviewed by Sandrine A., and Julie S., KIDS FIRST! Jurors.
