Le tout nouveau testament (2015)
Funny and original
Jaco Van Dormael is a special director : only four movies within 25 years, all good and all original. This one is a comedy and it's very funny despite many dark moments. The force of this movie comes from the possibility of multiple readings. Many other movies don't succeed to represent god in comedy (Let there be light, Bruce almighty., two of a kind, Clah of Titans...). The repetitive narrative structure is the only - minor - weakness but it's so important because each six segment has it own specificity. The casting is excellent specially Benoit Poelvorde as God and Yollande Moreau as his wife (a silent role). Despite all this, the film was a failure at the box-office everywhere.
