Movie Info

God takes over the body of Simon Donnadieu (Gérard Depardieu) in order to make love to his beautiful wife, Rachel (Laurence Masliah). When publisher Abraham Klimt (Bernard Verley) hears about this astounding occurrence, he travels to the couple's Swiss town to see whether it's true. French director Jean-Luc Godard's meditation on God's relationship with man is replete with stunning images of the European countryside and nature.

    masterfully shot and featuring a wonderful musical score, but the story is mostly rubbish. most of the story is scattered, and the parts that do come together paint an inconsistent and contrived view of both God and of human love.

    Had this flim not made me so sleepy, I would have mustered the energy to intentionally throw up on the screen. Pretentious, boring, and worst of all... unapologetically French!
