'The Brand New Testament' - Movie Review

God, it turns out, is a grumpy old bastard who lives in Brussels. His famous son ran away from home many years ago and got himself killed. God spends his time making life more miserable for his creations. Now his ten year old daughter hates him, and as her departing act of revenge, she posts everyone's death dates to their phones. Then she sets out to find her own six apostles.

I found the movie highly reminiscent of "Amelie." It definitely shares certain elements - the childlike world-view in the face of very adult subjects (religion, sex, death), people talking to the camera as their own life plays out behind them, and of course the charming surreality. Weird, thought-provoking, and very funny, I really enjoyed it.
