It is December 31, 1999 and New Year's Eve takes on new meaning when the Devil, Jesus Christ, and Christ's assistant Magdelina discuss and debate the end of the world, the opening of the seven seals, and the essence of being human.

'Believe in Humankind after all.' Clearly this was 'BT' --Before Trump.

Very intriguing film. A bit slow, with no action, and mostly dialogue, but it surprisingly kept my attention. The plot was original, and meaningful and the cast was perfect. I'd say this is well worth seeing.

Wasn't sure at first. Found the pacing difficult for a bit but the film turned out to be intelligent and cheeky. Almost died when Jesus dropped the F-bomb on the Devil.

For those put off by the video style, it was done in digital video - brand new at the time.

Ok.....let us talk about this movie; firstly I have to say it had behind a great, if not awesome, concept. What is religion? How is God? How do the opposite forces of the universe interact? I generally like that sort of take on religious movies so that should have sold it to me, but it didn't. The modern setting and the reinterpretations of the Apocalypse were somehow acceptable, but the camerawork was terrible, the cinematography almost non-existent, everything was blurry and shaky. The narration was interesting, philosophical I might even say, and it had shown the complexity the the principal character. The dialogue was weak, badly acted, I say again, in my opinion, and stilted, but not in the I-am-so-amazing-I-can-talk-about-the-end-of-the-world-and-soup-and-you-would-think-it-is-awesome. No! in the I-am-so-nonconformist-only-hipters-like-me. I had high hopes.

I'm like ummmm!...why would God throughout the ages get to this particular point and change his mind...ok alter ending but totally unrealistic...I wasted time watching this movie, thinking I would get some type of range besides blahness...hey I got a new word out of it...blahness..an hour or so of blahness...someone postd believe in humankind...yea buddy we've done that through the centuries and man is still man..the movie did state one thing that sticks...regardless of the time..we are still living in an Imperial Rome, names and faces have changed, but nonetheless the same....I rated it one star for the plot..but I would give it a 2 out 10 for originality...

Interesting, but not my type of movie. I think those who try to show or promote a weak image of God, only fool themselves hoping to get away from the final judgement, someway or another. I couldn't find any point to this movie. So I give it only 1 just for the acting. I watched this movie twice so far and couldn't come up to a better conclusion. If anybody has a better idea, please enlighten me.

It's fucking great. I'm an atheist, & I love it. It's a good movie, it's got great music, PJ Harvey is great, & it makes sense. Believe in Humankind after all. 9/10
