      Movie Info

      On the last day of 1999, Jesus (Martin Donovan) and Magdalena (P.J. Harvey) touch down at the airport and are thinking about the end of the world. Once they retrieve a laptop computer from a locker, with a few simple clicks prophecy will be realized and Armageddon will commence. Seeing humanity in all its complexity causes Jesus to have second thoughts, though. Meanwhile, Satan (Thomas Jay Ryan) sits in a bar trying to move a couple of souls to his side before the whole thing ends.

        The Book of Life has promise but it doesn't have the full punch of Hartley's other work. An interesting existential film nonetheless.

        Interesting low budget existential drama.
