Audience favorite Benoit Poelvoorde—whose film My Worst Nightmare screened in the 2013 edition of Five Funny French Films—plays God as a mean-spirited, pajama-wearing man who lives in a high-rise apartment in Brussels. His young daughter hacks into his computer and tries to fix the mess her father has made of humanity, rounding up a motley crew of apostles (including Catherine Deneuve) to instill a more positive message in the world. The Guardian called the dark, witty, and eccentric film “a sweet and blasphemous satire.”
