Poster for The Brand New Testament

According to this comedy, God (Benoit Poelvoorde) is alive and well and living in Brussels where He sits at His computer in a wife-beater and bathrobe. Staving off boredom by creating natural disasters, and directing divine wrath at His put-upon wife (Yolande Moreau) and shy daughter Ea (Pili Groyne), this isn't the God we're used to. His son may have buggered off, but His daughter has a revenge scheme in mind... More

"God exists. He lives in Brussels. He is horrible to his wife and daughter. We’ve heard a lot about his son but precious little about his daughter. I’m his daughter. My name is Ea and I’m ten. To get even, I’ve sent everyone in the world an SMS with their date of death...." (Cannes Film Festival)

God's not dead, just useless, in a sweet and blasphemous satire.
