English Summary:

The Odyssey is a 1997 American mythology–adventure television miniseries based on the ancient Greek epic poem by Homer, the Odyssey. Directed by Andrei Konchalovsky, the miniseries aired in two parts beginning on May 18, 1997 on NBC.

Odysseus (Armand Assante), the king of the ancient Greek kingdom of Ithaca, is called to service in the Trojan War after the birth of his son Telemachus, much to the dismay of his wife Queen Penelope (Greta Scacchi). Odysseus is worried that he may not return, and tells Penelope that she should remarry by the time Telemachus is a man if he does not return. The war lasts ten years, during which Greece's best soldier, Achilles (Richard Trewett), is killed and the Greeks avenge him by using a giant horse to sneak inside and destroy the city of Troy. Laocoön (Heathcote Williams) tries to warn the Trojans of a vision of this, but is suddenly devoured by a sea monster. Odysseus' ego gets the best of him and he tells the gods that he did it himself, which angers Poseidon (voiced by Miles Anderson) so much that he promises to make Odysseus' journey home to Penelope nearly impossible, mentioning that it was he who sent the sea monster to devour Laocoön.

 

Hungarian Summary:

Odüsszeusz otthon várja fia, Télemakhosz születését. Kötelessége azonban elszólítja, mivel a görögök oldalán részt kell vennie a trójai háborúban. A görögök eleinte azt remélik, hogy a harc nem tart sokáig, de a háború több mint tíz évig húzódik. Akhilleusz halála után úgy tűnik, a trójaiak javára dől el a harc. Ekkor támad Odüsszeusznak az a zseniális ötlete, hogy egy falovat építve csempésszék be a görög harcosokat a trójai várba...
