The Commitment

R2 Spain




The Japanese film The Commitment concerns a group of high-school seniors desperate to enter the respective universities of their choice. In a last-ditch move to guarantee acceptance, they embark on a quest to a mysterious shrine, where they promise their eternal souls to a malicious, omnipotent spirit, in exchange for admission. The apparition grants their requests, but at a deadly cost: if any of the individuals tell the world of bargain, the rest will die. Moreover, the spirit has some vile requests of its own that it requires the students to fulfill. In time, those choices lead to unprecedented destruction and misery in the students' lives. Prangthong Chsngthom and Thitima Maliwan co-star in this tense supernatural thriller.
