Tuesday Cinema: Noah

It's time for a new Tuesday Cinema, this week's movie is a biblical movie to give you something to think about before Easter's weekend: Noah. It's pretty straight forward this time as it comes from the bible so there is no real surprise with the story.

The story: Noah has a dream that the world is going to be floated, he doesn't really know what to do about it so he goes to seek advices from his grandfather, who is very old and wise and can do some pretty cool magic. On the way he rescues a little girl. Then he decides to build an Arch for his family, and all the animals of the creation and he is helped by the Watchers who god has transform into huge stone giant when they disobeyed him. Following the animals, the rest of humankind shows up at the Arch is looking for trouble. At the same time, Noah decides that the human race should be lead to extinction. 

My feelings: I had a bit of trouble with this movie. It was hard to actually get into the emotional part of it and to bind with the main character. The best characters were Han and Ila because they were more feeling driven than duty driven. Even though Noah was to do the right thing there was no real guidance from god for him. He had the dream, of course, and saw images, but it was his duty to interpret it and to decide what he wanted out of it. It was not really god's choice of God's will, it was all Noah's. I think that part at least was great, no matter what you do in life, no matter how close to god you seem to be, it's never his will or his choice or him who makes people do anything but people who decide to give their own unique interpretation of the words and images. We are not puppets, we have free will and Noah also did. Hiding behind God is for coward who don't want to take full responsibility for their actions.
