Le tout nouveau testament

The Brand New Testament

The Brand New Testament looks to be an example of that uniquely Franco-Belgian sort of surreal, manic comedy, made popular in the west by the likes of Jean-Pierre Jeunet. Jaco Van Dormael’s film centres on God – here an eccentric jerk living in Brussels – and his ten-year-old daughter Ea, who sets off to save humanity from his questionable care.

The film arrives in UK cinemas on April 15th, but we’ve got an exclusive clip to whet your appetite ahead of the release:
