Storyline

WORD OF GOD is the screen version of Jens Blendstrup's best-selling autobiography of the same name published in 2004 - a wry, funny and touching film by award-winning director Henrik Ruben Genz, and starring Søren Malling in his defining role as Uffe/God. It is the 1980s - Jens and his brothers live in a single-family house in Risskov, a suburb of Aarhus, Denmark. Here, the family's patriarch psychologist and self-appointed God - Uffe - rules the roost in his dressing gown and underwear. Changes threaten the peace when Uffe decides to write his memoirs. The family home is suddenly filled to the rafters with Uffe's loyal patients, who both provide Uffe with moral support - and drunken companionship. As insurrection smoulders on the part of his three sons, maternal Gerd Lillian does all she can to keep the family together. But for Jens, Thomas and Mikkel to break free of their father's tyrannical rule and grow up will require a final, inevitable showdown with 'God'.

Worst movie ever watched
10 June 2019 | by Khbn-28140877See all my reviews

This is by far the very worst movie I have ever seen. I took a chance and gave it a try at the cinema back in 2017. 5-7 persons left the cinema in anger of how bad it was. I only made this account to make this review.
