This is a short film parodying the major Hollywood film "The Creation" directed by John Houston. This film has the look of a tongue-in-cheek production, done on a small budget by animators who wanted to make fun of great works that cost enormous sums of money.

Apart of Tezuka's 13 experimental films, Genesis is a parody of the beginning of man, women, animals and the world. Osamu actually diverts the belief that man came first and women birthed from the rib of Adam in a most comical way. The film suggest that God failed with women (really though man and women failed themselves with war, crime and perversion of the world and material possessions and what have you.), that he should start over, but this time with man coming first and women second.

There is not much of a story here, just a very early piece of animated parody with read more

Warning this is based on not only religion but creation. Don't forget this is a person's view doesn't mean what you may think happen happened.

What is originally thought to be the oldest story known told in an animation form takes an interesting spin. Sure, it informs you with old information but provides almost a background basis that was either left out of the bible or in more of an easier form to read. As for the conclusion it is was you would expect.

- sure color could have been applied but given the plot it works well without it. For color read more
