Eastern Promises

15 yrs 96 minutes 2007 7.6

A realistic thriller and mafia drama about a young midwife (Naomi Watts) who delivers a child while the hard beaten mother dies. Traces lead to the alleys of London and the Russian Mafia's world of dirty business, violence, trafficking and complex family relations. In the leading part as a mysterious double-playing Mafia aspirant we find Oscar nominated Viggo Mortensen. DN's Helena Lindblad gives the score 4 out of 5 and writes: "With directors like Cronenberg behind the camera, there is hope for a revolution in the stupid genre movie."
