This DVD Is Great, We’re Not

user submitted pictureSome critics bashed this French romantic comedy for its schizo camera work and non-existent plot, but we thought God Is Great, I’m Not captured the complexities of love, faith and weird hairstyles without dragging us down into boring philosophical matters. It stars the impossibly cute Audrey Tautou (of Amelie fame) as a semi-Buddhist fashion model with spiritual amibitions who tries to enlighten her non-religious Jewish boyfriend; even though not much else happens, we got a good giggle when she lights a cigarette off his Holocaust survivor parents’ menorah. Yeah, maybe we shoulda been paying attention to the fine art of American debate taking place in our hometown (which hasn’t seen so much action since the Pope visited back in the 80’s) instead of wasting time with French subtitles, but we know who we’re voting for anyway. Don’t you?
