Les Grands Mythes – The Odyssey
Homer’s Odyssey revives the story of Odysseus who, after the Trojan War, wants to return home to the island of Ithaca. But the spectacle of war has driven him away from the Gods, in whom he no longer wants to believe. This distrust attracts the wrath of Zeus to him. During this long journey, He will encounter terrible storms, tread the Underworld and face frightening creatures such as the Cyclops, the sirens, or Charybdis and Scylla.
While in his kingdom, his wife Penelope resists the Suitors who are scheming to steal his throne and his wife. Will Ulysses be able to prove that the Gods are no longer necessary for men?
