Five Funny French Films
The Brand New Testament (Le tout nouveau testament)
Saturday, April 8, 2017:
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.”
“A cheerfully blasphemous movie and pointedly hopeful vision of what life might be with the right girl in charge.” —Los Angeles Times
“Wickedly amusing! A surreal comedy whose endless visual imagination matches its conceptual wit.” —The New York Times
“Wildly inventive.” —Variety
