The serie THE GREAT GREEK MYTHS offers a new take on Homer's work: The Odyssey! This famous journey takes us to the seas alongside Ulysses, for a long journey, fraught with danger.
After the Trojan massacre, Ulysses wants to return home, to the island of Ithaca. But the horrors of war have driven him away from the gods, in whom he no longer wants to believe. His mistrust earns him the ire of Zeus. During this long journey, he will encounter terrible storms, go through the underworld and face terrifying creatures – the Cyclops, the sirens, or Charybdis and Scylla. Meanwhile in his kingdom, his wife Penelope resists suitors who only think of stealing his place. Will Ulysses prove that he does not need the gods to live?
Keeping in line with the first season, each episode consists in a succession of original animations created in 3D and very rich iconography chosen from all artistic periods – from antiquity to the modern era.
