Audience: Older teenagers and

Snyder GOD IS GREAT AND I'M
NOT is a French romantic
comedy about a 20-year-old
model who tries to convert to
Judaism when she enters an
on-again, off-again
relationship with a young
Jewish veterinarian. Audrey
Tautou of last year's French
hit AMELIE plays the young
model, Michele, with Edouard
Baer as the veterinarian,
Francois. When they first
meet, Michele is practicing
her family's Roman Catholic
faith. When they meet for a
second time, Michele has
become a Buddhist. Michele
becomes interested in Judaism
when she learns that Francois
is Jewish, but Francois
couldn't care less. When it
appears that this time Michele
is serious, he starts taking a
conversion class with her, but
things still don't go well for
them. This movie is a very
choppy, superficial comedy
about romance, sex, family,
marriage, and religion. As you
might expect from a French
filmmaker, the ultimate lesson
of this inconsequential movie
is that love is more important
than religion or theology.
Thus, despite somewhat
positive references to Jesus
Christ and especially to God
and the Hebrew Scriptures, GOD
IS GREAT AND I'M NOT adopts a
Romantic worldview with
humanist tones. It also
contains some strong foul
language and sexual
situations. Although the movie
opened late last year in New
York City, it is making the
rounds throughout the rest of
the United States this
year. Please address your
