The cycle of life of a handful of different animals is captured on film in a whole new way in this documentary. Using special motion-control photography equipment, Genesis allows filmgoers to view animal behaviors which are too small, too slow, or too difficult to normally be seen with the naked eye, including a chick hatching its way out from inside an egg, jellyfish drying into nothing under the heat of the sun, or a snake slowly swallowing prey bigger than itself.

With quiet skill and some poetry, Nuridsany and Perennou -- who began as award-winning nature photographers and popular book writers -- give us a big peek into their infinite theme and subject.
Nuridsany and Pérennou have made another breathtaking feature penetrating the unseen kingdom around us.
While the science sticks to the level of high school physics and biology, the combination of words and images is resonant and pleasing.
Genesis is a creationist's nightmare -- a feature-length endorsement of evolution. But it does so in an inherently spiritual manner. At times, the life through a microscope plainly blurs the line between man and animal.
The team of five credited cinematographers, which includes the directors, uses slow motion, time-lapse and extreme close-ups to provide fresh perspective on familiar sights and jaw-dropping footage of things you've never seen.
Because the images are so original and beautiful, Genesis is a movie you'll want to see on the big screen.
Switch off the subtitles and you have 90 mins of convenient entertainment for the school holidays, though the kids would probably prefer to be taken to the aquarium or the zoo

The images in their visual way match the poetry of the griot's language, and it's obvious much deep contemplation has gone into the film's narrative development.
A work of deep conscience and imagination.
