Hilarious and moving and so different from Mr. Nobody. One of the best movie I've seen this year because not only is the premise genius it becomes truly inspired in ways many religious satires never seem to even get at.
FNC '15 The latest Belgian whimsy from director Jaco van Dormael (Toto le Heros) finds God alive and living in Brussels being far from the benevolent overseer one's been led to believe in. In fact he's bored, vindictive and responsible for all those little things that go wrong everyday and his daughter wants it to change. Great concept that fizzles out pretty quick despite game performances and some cleverness.
I love this film on so many levels. The script, the music, the set design and the performances. I will need to watch it again for more of the subtleties. Funny, dark and sweet. I wish someone could hear the music in my heart !
Coraggioso e magnificamente blasfemo,Van Dormael ci sbatte in faccia questo Dio infame fracico,che usa l'umanità per soddisfare i suoi capricci senza alcun riguardo.Bellissima l'idea della bambina che scompagina tutto,e con la sua scelta porta gli uomini a ragionare sulle proprie vite e le relative priorità. Grottesco,sognatore,amaro,malinconico e profondo: ottimo ottimo centro.
