The cinema programme at the Institut français d’Ecosse screens a new film every Wednesday at 2:00pm and 6:45pm. These events are free, but for members only. We invite you to book early and if you are not yet a member of the Institut français d’Ecosse, we invite you to join. Our film this week is La promesse de l’aube by Eric Barbier.

From his childhood in Poland to his adolescence in Nice to his years as a student in Paris and his tough training as a pilot during World War II, this tragi-comedy tells the romantic story of Romain Gary, one of the most famous French novelists and sole writer to have won the Goncourt Prize for French literature two times. Adaptation of the autobiographical novel by Romain Gary, in which he recalls his youth in Lithuania, his exodus with his family to the south of France to escape the consequences of the arrival to power of Hitler in Germany and his career in the French Air Force.

Starring Pierre Niney, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Didier Bourdon
