The Second (misplaced) Coming
30 January 2001 | by (Copenhagen) – See all my reviews

Jesus himself has returned to earth, to save the sinners. He has brought a list of people who is to be recruited for this new revolution. However, the first on his list, is not easily convinced of his divine nature...

This film is not only intelligent, it is also written with lots of wit and thoughtfulness. It shows a society which is in fact blinded by its technological superiority.

Anders Thomas Jensen truly turns everything he touches into gold. If you don´t believe me, watch "Dogme 1 - Festen" (UK/US title: "The Celebration")
