Sinossi

Dal romanzo (1988) di Roddy Doyle. Negli anni '80 un giovane proletario irlandese mette assieme un gruppo di musicisti soul (“The Commitments”, ossia le promesse) che nella Dublino degli U2 e di Sinead O'Connor cercano di uscire dal ghetto. Come la sofferenza nella vita può diventare gioia nella musica. Un bel film. Giusto nella scelta e nella direzione degli attori, nel suggerire le spinte e i bisogni di libertà, democrazia e progresso di una generazione, nel ritmo del montaggio modellato sulle canzoni. Anche gli altri 2 romanzi della trilogia di R. Doyle sono stati adattati, entrambi con la regia di Stephen Frears: The Snapper (1993) e Due sulla strada (1996).
