God's Comedy (Portuguese: A Comédia de Deus) is a 1995 Portuguese film by João César Monteiro. It is the second part in a trilogy, preceded by Recordações da Casa Amarela (1989) (Recollections of the Yellow House) and followed by As Bodas de Deus (1999) (Houses of God). God is symbolized through the character João de Deus (lit.: John of God), played by writer/director Monteiro himself. The film was selected as the Portuguese entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 68th Academy Awards, but was not accepted as a nominee.[1][2]
