Time Out says

3 out of 5 stars
Short on specific solutions but long on outrage, Fatal Promises details the burgeoning but often ignored crime of human trafficking. Through interviews with Ukrainian survivors of sexual servitude as well as activists like Gloria Steinem, Katharina Rohrer’s documentary paints a picture of a global slave trade that preys upon the economically disadvantaged. The film fingers public ignorance and governmental inaction as causes, but its horrifying first-person testimonials of exploitative abuse are what make this call to arms resound loudly, angrily, urgently.
