I dare to say that this is the only Odyssey that is so close to the original epos written by Homer. As a Greek and a Classics' teacher I recommend this film to anyone who is interested in The Odyssey. I'm never bored of watching it. An excellent cast and a respectful attitude towards the ancient script. Watch it!

This lavish small-screen adaptation of Homer's ancient epic--replete with exotic Maltese and Turkish locations, state-of-the-art special effects, and many bronzed muscles gleaming with sweat--chronicles the voyage home of a Trojan hero, Odysseus, and includes many more scenes of his faithful, beautiful wife dodging leering suitors at home than Homer ever composed.
