The Brand New Testament
Time Out says
God is real, and living in Brussels in this imaginative, insightful comedy
We’ve had WikiLeaks and the Panama Papers. In this whimsical and sweet-natured Belgian satire it’s Death Leaks – an almighty cock-up where everyone on Earth (or at least everyone with a mobile) gets a text telling them how long they have to live.
It turns out that God exists. He’s living in a flat in Brussels and is a bit of a bully – sitting on His arse all day drinking beer and torturing humankind like a bored kid pulling the legs off a spider. We usually hear about His son, but it’s His 10-year-old daughter who unleashes Death Leaks and escapes from the flat (through a washing machine) to go out into the world and find some apostles like Her big bro. This is a film with a big heart and an even bigger imagination.
