God Is Great and I'm Not
The annual Melton Center Matinees film series explores aspects of contemporary Jewish life and history. Screenings are followed by informal discussion with scholars from the Ohio State community.Copresented by<b>Ohio State's Melton Center for Jewish Studies.</b>
She's back! French actress Audrey Tautou, who won the hearts of moviegoers around the world in the Oscar-nominated Amelie, stars in the delightful God Is Great and I'm Not.
In Pascal Baily's God Is Great and I'm Not, Audrey Tautou plays a high-strung Parisian supermodel who falls in love with a down-to-earth Jewish veterinarian.
She decides to convert (against his will) to the Judaism he himself barely acknowledges, and their already improbable relationship turns into a series of hilarious and ironic situations as she proceeds to teach him about his own religion.
Postscreening discussion led by Paul Reitter, Department of Germanic Languages and Literatures, and Michael Swartz, Department of Near Eastern Languages and Cultures.
