Ambitious try at filming the first chapters of the Genesis chapter. The Ark and Babel's Tower are impressive visual images and manage to make the Bible epic, but the film ends up being very preachy and slow and most of the film feels like a audio picture book read by John Huston.
Wow! John Huston as Noah, George C. Scott as Abraham, Ava Gardner as Sara and God as God. I liked the second chapter with Huston as a facetious Noah and the Babel tower episode. Now, it's a Dino De Laurentiis production and Huston didn't have much latitude with a book like the Bible so don't expect too much in terms of surprises. Recommended.
