This article describes model units for an in-depth cultural analysis of "Das Versprechen" in undergraduate college courses including intermediate German, German culture and civilization, advanced conversation and composition, and film. Practical suggestions for pre-viewing, viewing, and post-viewing activities as well as assessment in content-based, culturally oriented instruction illustrate how von Trotta's story of love and life in first divided, finally united Berlin fits into coursework designed to implement cultural proficiency standards.
