God Is Great, I'm Not

Movie Summary

Director:
Pascale Bailly
Released:
2001
Rating:
R
God Is Great, I'm Not (Dieu est grand, je sues tout petite) is a 2001 romantic comedy starring the internationally-adored Audrey Tautou (Am'lie) and Edouard Baer (La Grosse Boule, Moliere). The film was cleverly written and directed by newcomer Pascale Bailly. Michelle (Audrey Tautou) is a 20 year old French woman who already faces existential crisis. Her career in modeling is somewhat compromised by a problematic relationship with a long-time boyfriend. Before leaving him, she falls pregnant with his child. In an angst against what determines circumstance, she aborts the child and leaves her boyfriend. Michelle emerges from her gloom with a positive outlook while she searches for something meaningful to believe in. She is consequently drawn to a Jewish veterinarian named Francois (Edouard Baer) who insists he no longer follows his religion faithfully. Regardless, Michelle is lured by his philosophy and demeanor and ends up falling in love with him. Francois doesn't mind receiving unsolicited attention from a beautiful young model, either. God Is Great sometimes.moreless

    The New York Times Dana Stevens

    If these two can figure out a way to love each other, maybe it isn't necessary for us to like them very much.

    Los Angeles Times Kevin Thomas

    Far from great, and this off-putting French romantic comedy is sure to test severely the indulgence of fans of "Amélie."

  • 30

    Variety

    Choppy and fragmented to the point of irritation, pic overuses blackouts between scenes, self-conscious camera movements, narrative ellipses and other jangly techniques.
