Quite nice (and sometimes evil)
31 March 2014 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

Why would Jesus love one person? There is a satisfying answer to that in the movie (if it isn't already answered in the plot description). The guy playing Jesus (literally) has his feet firmly placed into the romantic genre in Germany. A known actor, but he still can pull it off, thanks to a very decent script.

The jokes sometimes work (Devil is smelling bad, though that joke only works once not as often as it is played out in the movie or the one about the appearance of God), but some are complete miss. There is cursing (which some might find offensive in a movie like this), but everything is kept as light as possible. Whatever your beliefs are, you might be able to enjoy this as a comedy. Not great, but OK
