Storyline

Heaven is a place with crumbling ceilings, an aging Jesus, and angels and saints entertained by human sexuality. On earth, Christmas, 1999, Jacques, who's dying of cancer, meets Sophie, pregnant and abandoned. Her babies and his death are due in the spring. Jacques runs a cabaret facing bankruptcy because his landlord insists on a 15-minute speech about Jesus every evening by the boring Bernard, and all the customers leave. Jacques prays for Bernard's removal: Heaven arranges a car crash. Jacques keeps a tape recorder handy, narrating his final days, focused on composing memorable last words. In Heaven, the dead Bernard keeps watch over Jacques and Sophie, with saving effect. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

This was a great, fun movie!
27 May 2001 | by (new york, ny) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this movie. It made me feel as if there is hope - even in the depths of despair and dying -- and that things work out as they are intended to. The acting was great and it was a fun and I highly recommend it. Enjoy!
