Storyline

The hero of "God" is really a god, arrogantly motionless Shiva, immersed in a secular dream or meditation. It would seem where are the insects and where is he? But the opposites come together: the Aldashin fauna takes revenge. It turns out to be very easy to get God - a rather annoying fly flies into his mandala. The awakening of the many-armed is terrible and comical in its helplessness. Numerous hands flicker, the body of God writhes in desperate attempts to punish the impudent, but blows are strewed onto the head of Shiva himself, arms and legs are intertwined by sea knots. As a result, the fly remains unpunished, and God descends from orbit, that is, falls out of the mandala. What consequences threaten humanity, one can only guess.

only a question of perspective
1 November 2017 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

only a question of perspective separates the amusement by the offense in this case. and not only for a Hindu viewer. because it is easy to see the god of destruction in the middle and deep angry, using entire body against a fly. and the final spider could be inspired metaphor for the fall of religion. or for the replacement of an old god. but, in same measure, for Bronzit is a game with fire. not only for the status of delicate subject for each irony exercise against religious believes but for the limits between a nice animation and a sacred taboo. the film reminds , in soft manner, the style of Charlie Hebdo. or the reincarnation of terrible Shiva. but the subject remains bizarre. and this is the only significant fact for me.
