Movie Reviews

REALLY good for claymation
Josephus | Knoxville, TN United States | 07/01/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"It is short, only 30 minutes, but it follows the story of Ruth according to the scriptures. I show this to my Bible History Class (teenagers 15-18 year olds) and they really like it. Even after 8 showings - I still like it."
A Must-Have If You Can Get This On DVD! Biblically Accurate!
Bryan E. Leed | Dayton, OH USA | 08/30/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I am really surprised how good this DVD is! It is super cute, yet it is also super faithful to the Bible scriptures that the story is taken from!

It looks exactly like the claymation used for such Christmas classics as RUDOLPH THE RED-NOSED REINDEER and LITTLE DRUMMER BOY!

I wish that every Bible DVD stayed as close to scripture as this little DVD does! The story of Ruth is short enough to fit into a 30 minute DVD. Other DVDs in this TESTAMENT series are accurate to scripture, but they must edit out some scripure to fit into the 30 minute format. What IS there is usually VERY good, though!

There are about 10 of these Bible stories from the 1990's, from a Russian company working with some British people, made for an English speaking audience. Only three are claymation. There is also a claymation of ABRAHAM, I don't recall the name of the third claymation, as I write this, sorry.

The others in the TESTAMENT series are cartoon animations using vastly different drawing styles. Most all of these are SUPER faithful to scripture and deeper theology! A few times they waste running time with a story framing device, such as having contemporary people recall the Bible story, before they switch to the actual Bible story.

If you have considered buying this, then DO SO IMMEDIATELY! You will not be disappointed, and you will get a great teaching tool for kids and anybody who can enjoy a cute claymation TV show."
The biblical story of Ruth in claymation
Kim Boykin | New York, NY | 02/13/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is an excellent 25-minute animated film of the book of Ruth. It's quite faithful to the biblical account, and since the book of Ruth is so short, the story didn't need to be condensed. The clay animation is well done, and I think both children and adults would enjoy this film. I've used it in teaching the Hebrew Scriptures in college and high school classes, and the students like it.

Also recommended: "Abraham" and "Jonah" from the same series."
