God Only Knows

Director: Mijke de Jong
Tragicomic tale about the unconditional love between siblings, in this case a brother and two sisters. One of them has a screw loose – or perhaps all three of them do?
The maniacal fifty-something Thomas is at home, burnt-out and addicted to pills and conspiracy theories. His sister Doris has taken him under her motherly wings – a blanket of care that the helpless looking Thomas gladly submits to. But it also suffocates him. Her over-anxiety also grates under their sister Hannah’s skin. The dialogue-rich actors film featuring Dutch top talent - Monic Hendrickx, Elsie de Brauw and Marcel Musters conceived the story, teaming up with director Mijke de Jong – incorporates excerpts from old letters to reveal deep emotional ties between the three siblings. But anytime they get together, tensions quickly mount and the decorum goes out the window.
