The Bible Stories: Genesis
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 breaktaking, faith-based portrait of Creation and the Flood by the acclaimed Italian director Ermanno Olmi. Narrated by Paul Scofield, 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.
“The Bible Stories: Genesis” does a good job in sharing the highlights of the book of Genesis. Narrated by Paul Scofield, the film features beautiful cinematography of landscapes, water, blue skies, pastures, and also a few recreations of the various Bible stories, including the story of Noah’s ark. God tells Noah to build it. So he builds it, endures the flood, and finally sees dry land again. Scofield tells part of the Genesis story in the narration and the film describes part of the story with the lush and gorgeous scenery.
The story of Cain and Abel and the lineage of the early families of the Bible are also featured in this movie. We are happy to award “The Bible Stories: Genesis” our “Faith-Friendly” Seal for all ages.
