The Brand New Testament (Le tout nouveau testament)
Strap yourself in for this wildly inventive satire in which God is an overbearing crank, shuffling around in a bathrobe, yelling at his family, and plotting ways to torment humanity and his daughter is a bratty, rebellious 10-year-old living in Brussels. This wickedly funny film, with a message, follows the “Daughter of God” as she hacks her dad’s computer and sends a text to everyone on Earth giving them the exact date and time of their death. Not your typical French film!
