Storyline

During the Peloponnesian War some 2,400 years ago, a wide and fragrant field in spring becomes the fierce and fateful battleground for two opposing armies: the Athenians of the Delian League, and the Spartans of the Peloponnesian League. Man against man and sword against spear, the soldiers are determined to sacrifice themselves for a greater purpose--the blood-soaked soil under their feet is the ultimate proof. But from afar, a young witness stains her precious innocence with the horrors of men. Is war the answer? Written by Nick Riganas

The nagative reviews are the proof of how much in denail modern humans are.
3 September 2018 | by johnxolidisSee all my reviews

The animation was exellent, I give it a 8 stars because as a person who is into historical reenacment I found some pieces historically innacurate with the way figures fought and were equipt but this can be forgiven because this animation shows 4 skirmishers not hoplites. The negative reviews I have seen so far are a testiment to human deniel and misinformation/lack of infomation. The animation has a story, it's the Peloponissian war, a war that happened not a fantastic event that most of your might think. It potrays perfectly the gruesomeness of such combat instead of making it look like a hero movie like most pieces of modern cinema do. For all those who review this movie negatively and actaully think what they are waching is just two guys killing each other for just cause then you have nothing more to do but to simply open a history book to realise this doesn't just have a story but it's a recreation of a real moment in human history.
