Very funny although disjointed
Probably inspired by Life of Brain this film gives an account of Mozes' brother-in-law. His life is somewhat similar to that of Mozes. He floats in an ark at exactly the same time as Mozes. He marries a sister of Mozes wife. He stands just around the corner when god speaks to Mozes and thinks he is addressing him. So he tries to do the same as Mozes without much success. In the end he is the writer of the commandments which are based on his own life experiences. The film plays fast and loose with the Bible to convey only one message: Don't take your religion more seriously than your particular god does. He may be more of a prankster than you are. The film feels like a couple of skits woven together. Which makes for a couple of jolting breaks between scenes. However, in this time of people taking religion much too serious again, this really is a breath of fresh air.
