When novelist Alessandro Battavia commits suicide, a taxi driver named Evangile and her brother Nord believe they are characters imagined in a novel, probably one written by God. Because they see their lives as "merde," they go in search of God to get their story rewritten. Along the way, believing everything is imaginary anyway, they shoot people, rob pharmacies, and tie up the residents of places they squat. They also gather a taxi full of eccentrics, including a priest, Battavia's suicidal widow, and a policewoman; various couples pair off. Soon life imitates art: the events and ellipses seem lifted from modern fiction as the group's quest for God continues. What's real?Written by
References a fake essay book, «Un bref désir d'éternité» by Louis-Albert Dieu, who appears to the group of people searching for God, wearing a uniform similar to that of a U.S. 7th Cavalry soldier. Dieu's character is played by Jean Yanne. See more »

Is this movie available on DVD? I'd love to watch it again but can't find it on neither DVD nor VHS. I would even settle for French with no subtitles :) I think I'll learn French, just to see this movie :)
PS 1 Comment about the IMDb comments validation. Could not submit this comment with the French title! The page said "Spelling Error, please correct". Funny ha!?
PS 2 I am writing these two PS's so that I can submit the comment! The second error I am getting is saying that my comment isn't too long! Must be minimum 10 line of text!!?! What is this? Can't I be terse, laconic, brief, concise, succinct, straight to the point without having to write this unrelated garbage?
