The Romantic Comedy with Spirit. Divine Intervention is a comedy about a young, hip preacher who becomes the temporary pastor of a small fundamentalist Baptist church in Los Angeles when the long presiding pastor has to take an indefinite leave of absence after suffering a stroke. The handsome and stylish Reverend Robert Gibbs flashy and hip style of preaching is immediately embraced by members of the now growing congregation, but is frowned upon by his predecessor, the stern and traditional Reverend Matthews, who does not agree with Gibbs trendy tactics or the new commercialized direction in which the church is headed. Coincidentally, Reverend Gibbs eventually stumbles upon a young lady who sparks his interest but presents a challenge to him. The young, lovely, and witty schoolteacher Divine, initially unbeknownst to Reverend Gibbs, is the daughter of Reverend Matthews and she has lost her faith in God due to losing her mother several years back to cancer. Reverend Gibbs tries to win her over while restoring her faith in God and steering clear of her dry humored and overly protective father in the process. Reverend Matthews prospects of returning to the church eventually lessen and Reverend Gibbs moves closer to assuming a permanent role as pastor of the church. That is until he meets even stronger opposition in the jealous and scandalous Deacon Wells, who attempts to uncover some elements of Reverend Gibbs past which may prevent him from winning the seat of permanent pastor of the church and more importantly, a place in the heart of Divine. Divine Intervention is a funny, upbeat spiritual journey about romance, religion, and scandal that will succeed with the ever popular and abundant, urban churchgoing audience and general viewers will embrace it for its warmth, humor and controversy.

Divine Intervention (Home Use) at Amazon

Region: 0
Run Time: 90 minutes
At the center of the Middle East conflict, hearts beat in tragic comedy and deadpan irony: a young Palestinian woman defies Israeli soldiers and struts through a checkpoint as if it were the catwalk of a fashion show, Israeli police use a blindfolded prisoner to provide directions to tourists in Jerusalem, a Palestinian collaborator casually extinguishes his firebombed house. These are but a few of the images that filmmaker Elia Suleiman puts forth in his critically acclaimed satire showing the absurdities of life on both sides of the Palestinian-Israeli border. DIVINE INTERVENTION offers a rare glimpse in the Arabic psyche by following the story of E.S., played by and clearly based upon Suleiman himself. E.S. is burdened with a sick father whose house is being gutted by tax collectors, and an unrequited love affair with a beautiful Palestinian woman who lives in the occupied city of Ramallah. Their love affair, which serves as a metaphor for the struggle for Palestinian independence, takes place in the parking lot of an Israeli checkpoint between Ramallah and Jerusalem. As they gaze in silent amazement, their world unfolds in front of them in a series of absurdist vignettes that speak to the sorrow and lunacy of the conflict and the effects it has on both sides. It is Suleiman's acerbic sense of humor (earning him comparisons to Jacques Tati) and his eye-popping direction that won him the 2002 Grand Jury Prize at Cannes.
