Promise at Dawn (French: La Promesse de l'aube) is a 1970 American drama film directed by Jules Dassin. It is based on the 1960 novel Promise at Dawn (French: La Promesse de l'aube) by Romain Gary.


The film follows author Romain Gary as he recalls his growing up with his Russian-born mother. The two leave Russia for France, where they settle in Paris. As twenty years pass, they encounter social change, age, different convictions, poverty and the slow approach of World War II.
