Noah

Noah is chosen by his world's creator to undertake a huge mission, in order to rescue the innocent before an apocalyptic flood cleanses the world. It's not the end... but the very beginning. From an adaptation of a comic-book, written by D.Aronofsky and A. Hadil in 2011. 



Darren Aronofski directed a film in which he succeeded to integrate his own iconoclastic, independent and adventurous views, but Noah remains faithful to the Bible. The production scale is up to standard of the iconic legend. This story sticks to the moral of what human kind is about. There is a sort of dimness, as the story is far more darker than I thought it will be. It goes from the creation, through the original scene, through the first murder and then to Noah; i-e The creator goes from creating a world to destroying it. Finding a balance between mercy and justice. The editing process is very well made, D.Aronofski is an innovative and creative director. He makes this film available for believers as well as non-believers. Thanks to a whole surprising fantastical world, which brings something new and totally unexpected. Moreover, each characters exactly find their place in the story and carry the film. First of all, Russell Crowe is a fantastic drama actor. He challenged his character and brings him a truthfulness, he is undeniably and absolutely credible as Noah, he could have built and orchestrated the construction of the arch. When you see him, you believe in what he's doing. Jennifer Connelly is also really good. Noah is almost Shakespearean in this way, as it's dealing with very strong female character. Ila, starring Emma Watson, is in fact a very important character. She has to witnessed the events and she is sharing a love story with Shem (Douglas Booth) which is the light of the story. Plus she appears to be a sort of conscience in the film. Noah might have pissed off some pro-religious people but we get so easily in this world, narrating a specific version of the iconic Biblical character that we have to admit that it's way far more than just a Biblical story, it's questioning Humanity and people in general. 


Overall, everything in this movie is going to surprise you.
