    • Synopsis
    • Set in Jaco Van Dormael’s native Belgium, The Brand New Testament is a surreal comedy
      in which God is a real life character who lives in Brussels. On Earth though, God is a
      coward, with pathetical morals and odious with his family.
      His daughter, Ea, is bored at home and can’t stand being locked up in a small apartment in
      ordinary Brussels, until the day she decides to revolt against her dad, hacks his computer
      and leaks to the entire world their fatale date of death, causing everyone to suddenly have
      to think about what to do with the days, months, years they have left to live…
