THE BRAND NEW TESTAMENT
released 15 april 15 | 115 minutes
Belgian fabulist Jaco Van Dormael’s warm, cheeky and inventive satire proves Monty Python don’t hold a patent on God- coms. With Benoît Poelvoorde’s God presented as a mean- spirited grouch, his daughter visits Earth and gathers fresh apostles for a brighter Testament.
Madcap wit, invention and all- embracing compassion compensate for sketchy plotting; even the devout, surely, will warm to Dormael’s winning gospel. Kevin Harley
