Religion, and specifically the need to reinterpret the scriptures under the urgency of our times, is present in the films of Darren Aronofsky from short as Protozoa (1993) up in long as Pi (1998) and The Fountain (2006).

Although Noah Torrent (Noah Torrent) has all the look of a biblical adventure in the mold of classics like The Ten Commandments (1956) - and the film Aronofsky has jurisdiction in this sense as action epic - their version of the flood inevitably goes through the same reinterpretation.
