Although I doubted that ever again I will watch Odyssey on artistic scale comparable with Franco Rossi 1968 version, this another Italian version brings very pleasant surprise. And although before mentioned version is still considered the best ever, this one presents radically different approach. Its more inner Odyssey which tries to present only some of brief moments with psychological dilemma of main character. Its not spectacle nor literal presentation of Homers work, and its certainly not one of the peplums. This is visual poetry and its highly recommended to every one who loves seventh art.Its sad its still not yet much known.
