Storyline

In Claymation, we see the story of Achilles. He loves Patroclus; they carry that love with them when the Greeks seek revenge on Troy. After nine years of assault on the city, Achilles goes into a funk and withdraws from the battle when he decides that Agamemnon, the Greek king, has denied him his due spoils, a captured Trojan slave girl. In Achilles' absence, Patroclus leads the Greeks into battle, with tragic consequences. To avenge his loss and absolve his grief, Achilles faces Hector. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Work of art
15 February 2006 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

This short movie is neither about mythology nor warriors. It's about love.

It's hard to believe it actually made it's way into a presentation here in Brazil, I was really impressed by it back in 98 when I saw it. Came across a copy of it last year and still was amazed.

And in it's eleven minutes you can watch a full and rich show of stop-motion technique merged with an excellent art direction which brings you back to the "classic era" with the Greek beauty patterns.

The puppets are extremely well sculpted and the movie presents itself like an ancient arena theater, with great light/shadow effects and of course, Greek drama. All of this combined makes Achilles one of the most charming short movies I've ever seen.
