This is a fabulous film. Some may feel that it is sacrilegious, However, I appreciated the way it explored and challenged religious doctrines, as well as patriarchal societies. I highly recommend it!

What would Watson do without his computer!

A modern dark satire of religion. While not being laugh-out-loud funny, this film has humour that invokes deeper thought. The film is very reminiscent of "Amélie" while still being unique. "The Brand New Testament" offers a creative look at what life would be like if people knew how long they had to live. I will be buying a copy of this film as I already have the desire to watch it again.

A feminist view of what could be, tongue in cheek. Very well acted, in spite of the Chinese woman who is playing at being Inuk. A fun look at how the world came to be.

Worth watching, but not to everyone's tastes.

God is a bitter, petty, violent a**hole and his daughter has had enough. She crashes his computer and goes on a quest to find enough apostles to turn the hockey team into baseball in support of her mother. Full of quirky moments, faulty characters and more. One of my favourite scenes is when the priest clocks the God figure. Worth watching, but not to everyone's tastes.

"The Brand New Testiment" is a very European film . A spiritual comedy with emotional depth. The typical stereo type white male God is portrayed as a scoundral & gets his come upings in the end by the female side of God. That is God's wife & his 10 year old daughter. God runs the world via a computer which is very apocoplyptic. The daughter sabtages his his computer & escapes to earth were all Hell breaks loose for the betterment of humanity. The male God is not believed as God & is departed to a washing machine factory in Uzbakistan for eternity. God's wife takes over the computer & the world lives happily ever after.

I love quirky films that make you question and evaluate all the values you were taught to believe were "right and proper" while growing up, and this one did just that. Will many feel it is filled with blasphemy? Absolutely! This movie will bring out strong emotions in many, and I believe it was meant to do just that. I loved it and highly recommend it!
