Movie Info

Taking more than six years to film, this documentary written and directed by Claude Nuridsany and Marie Pérennou tells the tale of planet Earth's creation through breathtaking footage of diverse animals, changing land masses and swirling oceans. Narrated by Sotigui Kouyaté, the film lets the intricacy and grandeur of nature do most of the storytelling, which explains why many of the animals and natural events are listed in the credits as the "cast list."

  • 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 Prennou have made another breathtaking feature penetrating the unseen kingdom around us.

    July 15, 2005 | Rating: 3.5/4
  • An entrancing, technically ravishing blend of philosophy and science.

  • Bogged down by its intentions and too vast a 'cast.'

    July 8, 2005 | Rating: 2/4
  • 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.

Audience Reviews for Genesis

    <DIV ALIGN=center><B>GENESIS (2004) directed by Claude Nuridsany & Marie Pérennou</B></DIV><P><DIV ALIGN=justify>This is some sort of documentary trying to explain the apparition of life on Earth or in the universe. Its like an animal documentary basically, trying to explain behaviors, rather than trying to teach us about those animals.<P>I got to say, there are some incredible shots throughout the film and some weird looking animals, but when the journey is over, I dont feel like I learnt anything about anything. So Im wondering what the point of this film is ?<P>Its a bit too philosophical and cheesy sometimes, the metaphors dont always work and the narration, well, first, in a documentary when you have a narrator you need a voice that will rock you throughout the film, like Morgan Freeman in <I>March of the Penguins</I>, here, they went for an African dude. Thats all alright. But the guys has no rythm in the way he speaks, and sometimes I couldnt even understand what he was saying. He actually amde the film boring rather than fun. <I>Genesis</I> is interesting but flawed. Unfortunately one big mistake, hurt the film very much.</DIV>
