This 2 part mini-series is meant to entertain but Barnes, who studied British history & theology, was also Jewish. He was serious in a funny, sometimes irreverent way-a combination of British satire and Jewish humor. Yet he captures your attention & for me, he made me think... to ponder over & over what that journey may have been like.
The film doesn't stick to scripture, however, scripture gives us little detail either. I have watched this DVD more times than any other movie in my 70 years & still pick up new nuances of Bible truths. I loved the characters interactions & relationships. This depiction of Noah showed his love for mankind, which caused him great pain; his obedience was done with a pure faith, yet he questioned God and felt guilty for the loss of so many lives.
For me, Peter Barnes wrote the essence of the story and the man. I continue to ponder how this relates to me...to my life...to what this Biblical tale is telling us today.
What a fun, entertaining movie? Enjoy. Want to probe further? Watch it more than once.
I bought this because of the actors and actresses in it---ALL favorites. This is a popcorn and soda mini-event, and,
is presented as light entertainment with----in MY opinion----a closer story line to MY interpretation of The Bible
than the Rabbi-interpretation in the newest NOAH movie with the Golem-like Stone monsters... that----in MY opinion----reminded
me MORE of a TRANSFORMERS sequel, with a FLOOD event thrown in as a bonus. Bah!
I prefer light, wholesome, entertainment such as this... sometimes the one-liners were side-remarks about the LIBERTIES
that were taken with the story*... when Noah comments that "some people will say we WEREN'T in Sodom..."
*= denotes I do NOT recall Noah saying ANYTHING in The Bible.
