What if God does indeed exist but he’s actually a dick and his only daughter travels down to earth to set the record straight.
That’s the playful conceit behind Jaco Van Dormael’s The Brand New Testament, a dark comedy that screened earlier this year at the Directors’ Fortnight section at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival.
The film will soon have a release in Europe in early September and the first full theatrical trailer is now available to watch. There are no English subs but even our non-French speaking readers will get a kick out of the mayhem the pursues, not to mention seeing the great Catherine Deneuve in bed with a gorilla.
The Hollywood Reporter called the film, “irresistibly laugh-out-loud and feel-good, without sticky-sweet undertones.” Watch the trailer and an additional clip below and judge for yourself.
