Ramses is a somewhat shy 20-year old boy who has been living in a rural commune under sect-like conditions for 8 years. With piercings all over his body and dressed in robes, he has been studying the teachings of Kahn-Goeroe. When he is about to undergo a rather painful initiation rite, his sister Natasha visits and tells him their father is sick and dying. Ramses receives permission to leave, and together they head for Amsterdam. Once outside the commune, Ramses who isn't used to making his own decisions, learns about love and he meets a Palestinian prophet who is expecting the Messiah to land on the roof of his flat on the outskirts of Amsterdam.

The landing spot for Jezus is supposed to be De Bijlmer, a slum of Amsterdam. In 1992 a Boeing jet operated by El Al airlines crashed down on De Bijlmer, just after takeoff, taking out a large chunk of a highrise and killing a hundred people. See more »
I gave this film a six. It's worth seeing, but don't expect too much. A laugh or two and some funny ideas (Boeing crash on Bijlmer + smoking through your legs! + the title of the film).
The thing I liked most about the movie was the characterisation of Ramses. I believe that there are a lot of people out there who feel and act the same way as he does. Ramses is a person, that chooses the easy way and thereby throws his life away. As he comes from a difficult family situation this is in some way understandable, but he goes too far. He ends up back where he started, because he does not know what to do with his life. I hope the film helps people to see this waste and change their lives.
