Promises Written in Water is a 2010 drama film written, directed, edited, and produced by Vincent Gallo. The cast includes Vincent Gallo, Delfine Bafort, Sage Stallone, Lisa Love and Hope Tomaselli.


The film premiered at the Venice Film Festival[1] and was shown at the Toronto International Film Festival.


The film was not distributed and received generally poor reviews, with Leslie Felperin of Variety calling the film "underwhelming" and "a disappointment".[2] Deborah Young of The Hollywood Reporter wrote that the film "is an incomprehensible, disappointing effort in which he (Gallo) receives producing, directing, writing, editing, music and acting credits, so there really is no one else to blame if this story about a man who broods on love and death disappears into the waves almost immediately after its festival outings."[3]
