Synopsis


The Odyssey
Utilizing an exceptional international all-star cast and excellent special effects, Hallmark entertainment and American Zoetrope productions created this fun-filled adaptation of Homer's most-famous epic poem. It was originally broadcast as a four-hour miniseries on the NBC network. The story faithfully chronicles the many adventures of sailor Odysseus (Armand Assante), his colorful crew as they encounter a variety of mythical figures, including Odysseus's spiritual guide Athena (Isabella Rossellini), the seductive Calypso (Vanessa Williams) and the treacherous Eurymachus (Eric Roberts). Highlights include the Trojan Horse (made to original scale and filmed on location in the ruins of Troy) sequence. Much of the miniseries was filmed in Europe and on the Mediterranean, making it a feast for the eye. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

    I am not trying to tell anyone that this movie is excellent. It is a made for tv retelling of Homer's epic. It is well done and enjoyable. I don't think you would regret the purchase. I have been wanting them to re-release this for so long. It hasn't aged well, but still enjoyable.

    This made for tv saga was one of my favorites. In its time the special effects were top notch. The story and cast of actors and actresses were wonderful. Our family enjoys mythology and learning about the stories of Greece and Rome, and this one wasn't too far off. Very entertaining.

    I remember seeing this on VHS back in elementary school, so I immediately had to purchase it when I saw it. It is definitely a great teaching tool to explain The Odyssey.
