I have just seen the movie God is Brazilian and absolutely loved it. I found the dialogs hilarious and intelligent. This God is certainly a gust of fresh air compared to his American counterpart. God is a good guy, simple, vain and proud of his work. He just wants to take a vacation because mankind gives him so much to do. The other two main characters, Taoca and Madá (short for Madalena) are just so human that they could stand for the whole of mankind, as can all the other characters that appear in the movie. The story is a bit those medieval moralities where the characters start a journey that will reveal the truth. In their way they meet all sorts of characters that will help them on their quest. The best thing, however, are the dialogs. Just hilarious!
