THE BRAND NEW TESTAMENT begins with one simple conceit: God exists! He lives in Brussels and he’s a real bastard, a petty tyrant to his wife and daughter. His son is known well; JC managed to escape his father’s grasp and live among us, getting himself killed in the process. But God has a daughter, too. Ea is ten years old and has had enough of her father using humanity as his playthings. When she spies the right opportunity, she hacks into his computer and leaks to the entire world via text message their inevitable date of death. What follows is Jaco Van Dormael’s witty and eccentric answer to the loaded question: what would you do if you knew exactly how much time you had left to live?

"Lovely to look at, charmingly played throughout, and with a sense of fun that is more playful than subversive, "The Brand New Testament" is a bouncy treat: not so much heresy as whimsy, with a smooth matte finish and a mischievous grin."
Jessica Kiang - THE PLAYLIST

"With the consistently playful, often delightful and frequently funny God fantasy "The Brand New Testament", the Belgian auteur delivers his most substantially enjoyable film since 1991’s Toto The Hero."
Charles Gant - SCREEN INTERNATIONAL

"What we have is ultimately a welcome satire for the modern age that’s no less funny than it is intelligent."
Raffi Asdourian - THE FILM STAGE

"For sheer inventiveness of story, language, visuals and theme, THE BRAND NEW TESTAMENT is, quite nearly, a divine comedy. "
Michael O'Sullivan - WASHINGTON POST
