Dippy and dull, this look at the evolution of life on earth feels as if the New Agey art teacher took over science class. Actually, the movie isn’t even that interesting. Some fascinating close-up footage of bugs and such reveal Genesis to be the work of the
filmmakers behind 1996’s Microcosmos, but beyond that we get a lot of mystical babbling about the interconnectedness of all living things. It doesn’t help that this narration is delivered by some sort of shaman
in a robe. In French.
