The epilogue undermines the persuasiveness and credibility of the director’s good heart. Suddenly, touches of utopian and fantastic feminism, environmentalism (more precisely, tolerated inter-species romance) and rightful drastic punishment appear as last minute flourishes rather than central concerns. Humanity will have to wait if it wants another, more credible Testament.

There’s a lovely abrasiveness to the film’s most trenchant humour and, at times, especially in the ‘Genesis’ section, the sheer grace and simplicity of the visual absurdism are quite breathtaking (a supermarket for ostriches? A cinema for chickens? Why not?). Overall Van Dormael and his team have so many good ideas that you revel in the sheer energetic expansiveness of it all, even when individual elements don’t quite come off.

Instead of trying to nail down the specific new doctrine suggested by the film’s title, Van Dormael and co-writer Thomas Gunzig delight in comic meanderings and visual flights of fancy. Giraffes strut through deserted streets, a disembodied hand pirouettes to Handel, and random daredevil Kevin defies his distant death date (the pre-destined dates of everyone’s demise having been leaked from God’s computer) with increasingly outlandish stunts.
