Nacho Cerda's visually mesmerizing masterpiece.
29 April 2006 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

I'm a rabid fan of Nacho Cerda's artful necro-shocker "Aftermath",but "Genesis" simply blew me away,when I first saw it on cinema screen in Warsaw nearly two years ago.This stunningly beautiful horror/short concentrates more on an extensive plot and theme,but still carries with it Cerda's taste for highly disturbing and confrontational imagery.Seemingly inspired by the classic Greek tale of Pygmalion and Galatea,"Genesis" concerns a sculptor whose wife has died suddenly in a car accident.Unable to cope with his grief,he begins to create a sculpture in her image.But as his work progresses,the sculpture begins to become flesh and blood,even as its maker's own skin becomes hard and stone-like."Genesis" is extremely beautiful,sad and heart-wrenching film about undying love and merciless death.Absolutely recommended.10 out of 10-what else?
