Storyline

Ramses is a somewhat shy 20-year old boy who has been living in a rural commune under sect-like conditions for 8 years. With piercings all over his body and dressed in robes, he has been studying the teachings of Kahn-Goeroe. When he is about to undergo a rather painful initiation rite, his sister Natasha visits and tells him their father is sick and dying. Ramses receives permission to leave, and together they head for Amsterdam. Once outside the commune, Ramses who isn't used to making his own decisions, learns about love and he meets a Palestinian prophet who is expecting the Messiah to land on the roof of his flat on the outskirts of Amsterdam.

Fun, Dutch, crisis-of-faith comedy
9 February 1999 | by Cas-5See all my reviews

In this unusual portrayal of people trying to find salvation in new kinds of religion in this era at the end of the millenium, the story focuses on Ramses, a young and impressionable man. Ramses is a member of a religious cult, located in the province of Limburg, Netherlands. .. Everything's all right in the end, but not as you expect it.
