Storyline

God-fearing Noah and his wife Emmy work a farm in a barren landscape with their married sons Shem ,Ham and Japheth and their wives and naïve teen-aged son Kenan. On a visit to the pleasure loving city Kenan falls for the hedonistic life-style of Sabba, daughter of Noah's atheist friend, wealthy trader Paul, and he visits her on a nightly basis. When an angel tells Noah to build an ark because his world will soon be engulfed by a huge flood Noah takes the news seriously but his family do not believe him and when he tries to warn the citizens he is reviled and pelted with rocks. Eventually Emmy shames the boys into helping Noah and the ark is completed though there is no sign of rain. Godly fugitives from the city arrive and, when the flood comes, are welcomed on board with a host of animals and birds but Kenan elects to stay with Sabba and they are drowned along with the other unbelievers. After the flood has abated the angel reappears to show Noah a rainbow, a symbol of hope. Written by don @ minifie-1

The Ark
12 April 2015 | by a_baronSee all my reviews

You know the story, but what would your wife say if you told her you were informed by an angel that God had chosen to save you while he drowned the rest of mankind for its sins? You want to build a boat seventy miles from the sea when it hasn't rained for a year? Why don't you lie down on the couch and tell the good doctor all about it? Well, not the last part, but you get the drift. Other family members were not exactly chuffed either, the consensus being that the old man had been out in the sun too long. And of course this view was shared by the crowds who denied even the existence of the Man Upstairs, but weren't our ancestors supposed to be superstitious heathens who believed in all manner of spirits?

Whatever, this special TV adaptation of the story of Noah and his ark is not concerned with anachronisms; the word science did not exist in his time, but it's unlikely he spoke English either.

One serious criticism must be made of it, it is curtailed greatly towards the end. After they enter the ark we see nothing until Noah is back on dry land. Whatever restrictions the film makers were under, they should have extended it for at least another half hour.
