The Brand New Testament (Bel/Fr/Lux, 2015), cert. 15 – subtitled

BNT landscape poster 250

a Croydon Comedy Festival screening

Director: Jaco Van Dormael       

Stars: Benoît Poelvoorde, Catherine Deneuve, Yolande Moreau, Pili Groyne

Imagine:

That God lives among us now (or at least is holed up in a flat in Brussels, dreaming up mean schemes and disasters for the world;

Brand New Testament - God is mean

Brand New Testament - Daughter escapes

and that his ten-year-old daughter decided to escape, gather six new disciples, and write a Brand New Testament.

 

And that their story is brought to you with great verve and imagination, dark humour, an extremely irreverent but genuine belief in both justice and redemption, and a sense of wonder, like Amelie turned up to 11.

Does that sound like fun? We certainly think it is!
