testament_300In Jaco van Dormael’s peppy, inventive comedy, everyone gets a text message from the Almighty, while “JC”’s sister gathers a gang of disciples.

What’s best is that through it all Van Dormael maintains a blazing storytelling momentum and a highly creative visual scheme.

Everyone on Earth is ultimately doomed, but this is a vision of optimism, of people being given the opportunity to help one another and doing it with tenderness.

If you can get past the initial blasphemy, you’ll find a highly moral film.
