Though Anders Thomas Jensen (producer, writer) is not a Christian producer
(Former movie 'Blinkende lygter (2000)' quite violent and about thugs improving their lives)
This movie is both hilarious, fun to watch and... supports the hypothesis God's out there ;-)

Typical Anders Thomas Jensen, but he has grown!, 5 April 2005
Author: torben andersen from Copenhagen, Denmark.
Anders Thomas Jensen may be the most interesting danish director/scriptwriter in recent times, and this movie certainly proves it. The neo-nazi Adam (Ulrich Thomsen) is sent to resocialization at a local church with a priest who can't do anything but turn the other cheek. In a religious context he relive the life and destiny of Job who's punished by God. This could very well have been an abstract and far-our movie, however Thomas Jensen has the ability to make it understandable, humorous and very entertaining, while keeping the love and respect of the religious story. He also has the ability to make the audience reflect the content, by providing black humour, quickly followed by caring tragedy. One might not always know why one laughs. Following the success of Blinkende Lygter and the not-so-great De Grønne Slagtere, Thomas Jensen places this story in between, by providing a black comedy with a great mind.

An extreme and wonderful movie, 14 August 2005
Author: renateaa from Norway
I went to see this film last night. I had no expectations going in to it, other than the fact that I really love Danish films and the actor Mads Mikkelsen. The movie really blew me away. The story is told in such a way that you find yourself laughing in the strangest places, you get really shocked in other places and the communication between the persons is extreme and wild! The acting from all of the actor's is superb!You go out of the movie theater with a smile on you face at the same time you find yourself reflecting on some of the key questions on life itself..

Get ready to laugh, wonder and be amazed by this movie, because this is one of the best danish movies I have ever seen. The weirdness and the obscure acting is just outstanding - The 2 new actors Ali Kazim and Nicolas Bro does the job well..
And who would have thought, that mixing comedy and religion could be that great - Anders Thomas Jensen you have done a fine piece of work.
In this movie you will also see some special effects, and it's done perfect - as you can hear, i am devoted to this movie - and I know I can't wait until it's out on DVD, I just have to see it one more time - I have even seen the trailer several times, just to be reminded of some of the funny scenes.. thumbs up 10 times!
