God lives in human form as a cynical writer with his young opinionated daughter in present-day Brussels, Belgium. She concludes that her dad is doing a terrible job and decides to rewrite the world, descending to earth in search of her own 6 messengers to write a brand new testament and change the status quo.
After looking at the cast, i.e. Poolvorde and Damiens, you would be expecting some pretty obvious comedy, and... you would be wrong. While there are good jokes and comical situations, the movie focuses on the story of the characters (there are more than it appears in the trailer) and answers the question "What if..." I was not bored a single minute during that movie, and the story developed naturally, with the discovery and adventures of the new characters.
I however didn't like the story with Catherine Deneuve, and the portrayal of a mighty computer.
Also, it's always a pleasure to watch foreign movies in small theaters in San Francisco. Going to big chain theaters showing blockbuster movies with 30 min trailers and advertisements in giant crowded and way-too-loud theaters is not how I like to watch my movies... But I digress.
