Where does the God live? In Brussels. With a family that he tyrannises. What he likes most is watching TV mindlessly, nagging at his wife, and coming up with laws that increasingly complicate people's lives. All that comes to an end when his daughter Ea cannot bear it anymore and decides to rebel. She steals her father's passwords from the computer, as well as all the secrets that will allow her to make the world anew.

A film directed by Jaco Van Doemael, who is known chiefly for his empathetic stories about people struggling with mental hardships. This time he made a comedy full of absurd humour, reminiscent of Monty Python's best work and featuring an excellent cast.

Jaco Van Dormael (1957) Belgian director and screenwriter. Has also worked as an actor and producer. His feature-length debut “Totò the Hero” was awarded the Camera d'Or at Cannes in 1991. Author of the renowned “Mr Nobody,” which featured Jared Leto and Diane Kruger, among others.
