This chapter gives close attention to the ways in which the film interprets and adapts the Noah tradition in the light of contemporary ecological concerns, and the ways in which this use, and the response to it of critics like Godawa, conforms to wider patterns within ecocritical biblical interpretation. It engages the film, the biblical text, and aspects of their mutual histories of reception, conscious of the potential for each to inform and enlighten the others. The chapter analyzes the trajectories of the film's ecological rhetoric, offering an assessment of the success of its approach and identifying potential alternative resources and approaches that were not taken up. Cain's subsequent descendants are replete with names and descriptions that invoke the spectre of Babylonian religion and describe the development of human civilization through animal husbandry, music, and metalwork. Noah's realization that the distinction between 'men' and 'them' can no longer hold neatly echoes a detail in the biblical text.
