Genesis paints a picture of how the world was created, and what creatures live on it now. The images are dazzling, as with the pairs other films. Images include The Galapagos Islands, Madagascar and Iceland. Many of the animals are shown in amazing detail. Allowing one to see what would normally be missed.
Although the images are expertly edited, Genesis lacks the 'wow' scenes that make Microcosmos and Winged Migration so great. A narrative is provided, with subtitles. An African elder describes the history of the world through its various stages. There are many assuming scenes, as in Microcosmos, making Genesis equally as appealing and suitable for children.
Genesis took a reported 6 years to make. Genesis is currently only available from Europe.
Bruno Coulais provides the soundtrack which some will find excessive towards and end of the film.
