    I don't cry during movies. I cried to the point of dehydration in this one. Everyone should see this movie.

    You can hear what palestinian children think about the conflict and what Israeli children think about it too.

    Great movie! Very insightful and thought provoking. It is sad to realize how these people are living and how their children are impacted by this conflict.

    Promises may want to unite the audience in humanitarian emotions, but it's more useful as a prod to examine what these children are learning from their schools, their leaders, and their media.
  2. Despite its lively tone and brisk editing, the project's sad epilogue -- shot two years later -- suggests that Abraham and Mohammed will be duking it out on the world's dime for some time to come.

    Timely and informative.
