Good satire on religion
23 August 2017 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

Being a big fan of Benoit Poelvoorde I had to watch this movie. And even though Poelvoorde isn't really the main character of the story, while he's God, the movie is more than enjoyable to watch. It sometimes made me think about Amélie Poulain, complete different story but with the same easy-to-listen-to narrating voice. Pili Groyne is the narrating voice and also the main character, playing Ea the daughter of God. She did a really good job playing her role of unsatisfied of her father's work, daughter of God. The cast was very well chosen, from people nobody ever heard of to Catherine Deneuve. And also François Damiens, the comedian everybody knows here in France and Belgium, as the man that can drive you completely nutters with his character of François l'Embrouille, mostly known for his short videos on Youtube etc. The shooting itself is by moments sublime, very good altogether. Jaco Van Dormael delivered another good Belgian movie. You can only give him credits for that knowing the tight budget you have when producing a Belgian movie. This time Poelvoorde is not the usual comedian we know, in fact the movie has some funny moments, but it's not really a comedy. It's more a parody on the ridiculousness of religion. And that's for me, being a convinced atheist, only a thing that I can enjoy.
