I have seen the film just a few nights ago.I agree that the futuristic part is enigmatic but it is also magic. Leloush couldn't give it up for the best reasons,and it is very dramatic to the story/legend that he is trying to tell us here. That part was taken at turkey,on the biblical site in the goreme valley, a cave town called the "The Witches Chimney's"- directly referring the Holocaust. Also, it is both futuristic & prehistoric land. This is the birthplace of nations in the bible. A place not far from Eden and Arrarat mountain. His point of view is panoramic and spectacular in that sense, and vital to the film which is an allegory before everything else. He points us the ongoing clash of traditions, nationalities,international politics and genders in one film which makes it a masterpiece to me. He also rewrites a totally different story of a man & woman, his classic, in historic context, only after 8 years.
