The end of the millenium has taken on a certain significance in modern day prophecies. What happens if Jesus Christ has second thoughts about the Apocalypse? It is December 31, 1999 and New Year's Eve takes on new meaning when the Devil, Jesus Christ, and Christ's assistant Magdelina discuss and debate the end of the world, the opening of the seven seals, and the essence of being human.

It's amazing the things they do. They're inventing themselves now. Artificial intelligence and cybergenetics and so on.
It's impressive, I admit.
They're cross-fertilizing pears with apples and goats with sheeps, tobacco plants with lightning bugs.
Now that's just stupid.
Well, I agree.

This film is an absolute work of genius. It blends little bits of laugh-out-loud humor, with lots of really great satire, and commentary on the whole issue of the apocalypse and the millennium. The camera movements and tricks take a few minutes to get used to, but after that they add to the feeling that this is no ordinary, bland movie, and give a sense that what is happening is completely farfetched and fantastical, and at the same time very very real.
One of the best i've seen!!!!!!!!
