A Russian teenager, living in London, dies during childbirth but leaves clues to a midwife in her journal, that could tie her child to a rape involving a violent Russian mob family.
For the record, I have never been a fan of Viggo Mortensen, not until I saw his performance in A History of Violence. This time Viggo re teams with Director David Cronenberg in Eastern Promises. The film is well directed and with a cast that includes Academy Award nominee Naomi Watts, turns out to be a pretty good movie to watch. I have read a few reviews which say that Eastern Promises is one of the best films of the year. Although it is watchable, I thought it was far from being one of the best movies of the year. If you are a fan of Viggo Mortensen and a bit of A History Of Violence brutality, then this is one movie you don't want to miss.
