December 13, 2016
A diverting, often chuckleworthy, sometimes provocative act of creation.
December 13, 2016
Even more than its fanciful flourishes, however, The Brand New Testament is elevated by its consistent sense of humor.
December 11, 2016
Nutty gags-a couple Terry Gilliam-worthy-and crisp comic timing allow the boisterous tone to rise above the machinations of a busy plot.

Bold, zany and outrageously funny. The most wildly original comedy since Being John Malkovich. It's a godsend!
December 9, 2016
... juggles shifts in tone without overdosing on sentimentality, and the offbeat result is whimsical but wise.
December 9, 2016
A dramedy about the Divine Feminine with a surplus of laughter, tears, music that touches the soul, and miracles that soften the heart.

A surreal comedy whose endless visual imagination matches its conceptual wit.
December 8, 2016
A clever exercise in gently heretical whimsy from Belgian writer-director Jaco Van Dormael.

It ought to be too daft and random for its own good, but Brand New Testament is a book we can believe in. Hallelujah.

The film might not be on par with some of the other work by the filmmaker, but it's still a great film. [Full review in Spanish]
June 6, 2016
Using comedy, drama, and fantasy, the film slowly reveals what it really is: a feminist fable with existential tones. [Full review in Spanish]
June 6, 2016
Speaking of religion is a delicate matter, but the honesty and cynicism Van Dormael uses to denounce it's incongruities will upset the more conservative viewers. [Full review in Spanish]
June 3, 2016
A controversial film, but don't take it too seriously, that's the whole point. [Full review in Spanish]
