Wandering Wednesday: 'The Odyssey' (1997)

See also

This Wednesday's pick for Wandering Wednesday is 1997 TV miniseries "The Odyssey." What better story about traveling than "The Odyssey." This ancient Greek epic by Homer is definitely a timeless story about one man's desire to just get home, but the gods, monsters, and the will of man just won't let him.

The miniseries first aired on NBC, and since then had garnished two Emmys and had been nominated at the Golden Globes of that year.

Andrei Konchalovsky directed the movie and Armand Assante, Greta Scacchi, Isabella Rossellini, and Vanessa L. William all starred in the movie. I would also like to note one of the producers was Francis Ford Coppola. It aired in two parts and is roughly around 176 minutes all together.

So this Wednesday's pick for Wandering Wednesday is the epic film, "The Odyssey." It's a series to watch if you love Greek myth and Homer's work. Travel back to an Ancient world of gods and monsters!

Note:

If you would like to even get more classic, check out the $2.99 rental of the Kirk Douglas's film, "Ulysses." That's another film version on the Homer legend.
