The Belgium entry for Best Foreign Language Film at the 88th Academy Awards, A Brand New Testament is a dark comedic fantasy that follows the mundane life of God. In this film, God is a mortal who lives in a high-rise apartment in Brussels and never gets out of His pajamas. He takes delight in dreaming up new "laws" to torment humanity and He is petty to his wife and daughter. When his daughter spies the right opportunity, she hacks into His computer and leaks to the entire world the only thing He has over them: their inevitable death date.
