God is a jerk who lives in Brussels and loves intentionally making people miserable… That should have you hooked.


Van Dormael’s new movie is as satirical as you’d expect but get past the initial blasphemy and you’ll find a clever, sweet, funny film that should conquer your heart.


After JC’s go, we’re now following the adventures of God’s daughter, Ea, who’s trying to fix what her useless father is inflicting on us. She goes on a quest to find new disciples and write a new book to add to the Bible.


This original and thought provoking piece will force you to ask yourself philosophical questions about your existence while making you laugh out loud along the way.


Always comical, sometimes a bit cynical, never pessimistic and surprisingly filled with tenderness, this movie is truly one of a kind.
