Espulsa dentro una lavanderia self-service infila la via del mondo, recluta sei apostoli e si prepara a combattere l'ira di Dio, a cui ha manomesso il computer e di cui ha denunciato il sadismo, spedendo agli uomini via sms la data del loro decesso.

Das brandneue Testament : Gott exisiert, er lebt in Brüssel( Visual )

3 editions published in 2016 in German and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sanft-groteske Komödie, die die biblische Schöpfungsgeschichte dahingehend "korrigiert", dass sie Gottes Tochter Ea gegen ihren misanthropisch-despotischen Vater, der mit Frau und Kind in Brüssel wohnt, ins Feld schickt. Das zehnjährige Mädchen wirbelt Gottes sadistische Weltordnung durcheinander, als es den Menschen ihr genaues Todesdatum enthüllt. Die fein ziselierte Fabel steckt voller aberwitziger Ideen und inszenatorischer Einfälle, wobei sich hinter ihrem mitunter schwarzen Humor großzügige Menschlichkeit sowie die fast kindliche Sehnsucht nach einer besseren Welt offenbaren. Die Inszenierung greift tabuisierte Themen wie Armut, Krankheit, Gewalt, Sex und Suchtverhalten auf und hinterfragt nicht zuletzt die Rolle von Frauen in Bibel und Gesellschaft." [filmdienst.de]
