The brand new testament

Jaco Van Dormel(2016)

Feature Film | 90 min | Original version : french

Synopsis :

Dieu existe. Il habite à Bruxelles. C’est un salaud. Il est odieux avec sa femme et sa fille. On a beaucoup parlé de son fils, mais très peu de sa fille. Sa fille c’est moi. Je m’appelle Ea et j’ai douze ans. Pour me venger j’ai balancé sur Internet les dates de décès de tout le monde…

When Ea gets fed up with her overbearing father (who happens to be God), she decides to follow in her older brother's footsteps by leaving the house, gathering her own apostles, and writing her own testament.
