Adam and Eve in Paradise, the trials of Cain and Abel, and the beloved story of Noah and the Ark come to life in this visually breathtaking, faith-based portrait of Creation and The Flood by acclaimed Italian director Ermanno Olmi. Narrated by Paul Scofield, and with a score by Ennio Morricone, Genesis is an epic yet poetic portrait of the creation of the world, painted with unforgettable imagery, words and music.

I'm a Sunday School teacher and was looking for something to supplement a lesson on Noah's Ark. This looked interesting, so I bought it without review. The cinematography is nice, yet if you're looking for a good re-enactment of the three Genesis stories you should look elsewhere. I gave it two stars as it does stay close to Scripture.

The story is narrated with brief and "low budget" portrayals of the three stories. Much of the film shows a nomad (Beduoin?) family seemingly from the time the stories were actually written. Seeing people sitting in tents or around a campfire while an old man narrated was not compelling. Wife was snoozing after ten minutes, while husband had to fight gamely to make it to the end, though there's a good probability some portions were missed.

It was boring and hard to follow and not scriptural. Example: Noahs grandkids were on the ark also........I would not buy it again!!!

The person talking sounded like they were whispering, I even added external speakers and could not hear it well enough to enjoy the story.

Unlike most of the other "Bible Stories" DVDs, this one doesn't follow the Biblical account of story lines at all.

Oct. 1st, 2014 11:23am I am not yelling when you come upon Capital Letters, as so people mistake it to be, But for me I capitalize ANYTHING WITH GOD'S NAME, LAWS AND HOLINESS and TRUTHS!!!! I can not recommend this movie to anyone and I am sure many would disagree with me, but THE ALMIGHTY GODHEAD TOLD Noah How To Build The Ark, see Genesis 6:14 -8:22!!!!! It makes me so sad when people want to make a film about Stories in GOD'S HOLY WORD, but they do not want to stay with in the CONTEXT OF THE BIBLE, but add to IT Want IT Does Not Say!!!! GOD IS A HOLY LOVING GOD, and NOT A GOD Of Confusion and lies!!!! I would not buy, nor recommend this movie to anyone, Accept Those who had their BIBLES Open To Read before or after they watched it to see The TRUE Context of what is being shown or said!!!! So many BIBLICAL movies that are made are not always strictly To THE WORD OF THE BIBLE!!!! And if a person does not read Their BIBLES PRAYERFULLY would think they are learning TRUTHS Strictly From THE BIBLE! So if I said this movie was good, in my heart I would be a liar!!!! I wanted to stop it all together, and I wasted money paying for it!!!! Many people watch BIBLICAL Movies to enjoy watching THE BIBLE Live Action!!! Polar 2[Eya-Andrea]

All of the bible story series have been wonderful. To gain a better understanding of the beginning is as important as the rest of the stories in the series.
