Noah - Creation

I went to see Noah the other day. Took a while to get into it, but once things started kicking off (i.e. boat building), I actually enjoyed it quite a lot. I tried to forget about all my thoughts on religion, the bible and so on and just see the story for what it is. Great effects, a story well told (particularly the tension surrounding the birth on the boat), and Jennifer Connelly, who, let's face it, can save almost any film. 

My favourite scene though was when Noah told the story of creation. From 2.47 is especially effective, if especially sad.
