The 33rd Annual Olympia Film Festival presents
THE BRAND NEW TESTAMENT
6:30pm

 In this wildly innovative and incredibly funny film, all Hell breaks loose when the daughter of God – who turns out to be a cantankerous, vindictive slob living in Brussels – informs Earth’s mortals of the exact dates of their demise. This eagerly awaited project from Jaco Van Dormael (Toto the Hero) mixes religious satire and ironic fantasy to salutary effect. No longer in thrall to God’s all-seeing eye, the general populace feels free to act on their basest instincts and hidden desires. For Catherine Deneuve, that means going to bed with a gorilla. A snarling Benoît Poelvoorde plays God as a grumpy bastard, given to managing Earth’s affairs while clad in a bathrobe and pajama bottoms. Wonderful French comedienne Yolande Moreau is his mild wife, who comes into her own when God descends to Earth to, er, try to put the fear of God back into everyone. This is bold, brash, blasphemous filmmaking on a grand scale that will delight and challenge you and have you laughing the whole way.
Director: Jaco Van Dormael / 2015 / Belgium, France / 113 min
