Hold tight. Give me the pain.


Come this way!

This day was the proudest day of my life.

My sweet Penelope and the gods had

given me a son.

But at the same moment, the

world we had built together

was changed forever.

Dark abord rent my new shores:

My beloved Greece entered the war

against Troy ...

The most powerful of kings,

Agamemnon and Menelaus himself,

came for me.

Bound by my oath of allegiance

and honor me dictating to

protect my country,

I was forced to leave my home,

not knowing if I would see

my wife ever ...

and my child.

I am Odysseus, king of Ithica.

And this is my story.


You must it leave here.

Mother ...


Convene the Masters ... Gather the crew.

We leave for Troy.

The gods are with us!

Athena, my goddess, you

have always protected me.

But today you remain silent.

Is there a way to avoid this war?

Talk to me.

No tears?

No tears.

Troy will not fall easily.

I love you!

- If ever I did not return ...

- You will!

Do not even say the word!

You must allow me to die inside of your memory.

You'll always be my wife.

you choose another.

And you will marry.


I love you!

I will return safe and sound ...

Living like this tree ...

around which we built our world.

I will wait.

Antiphus! Play a song of farewell!

Hoist the sail!

Return with the bodies of

enemies you have killed!

And my CSUR rejoice.

Penelope gives R the same

strength you gave me.

The gods of heaven and the

sea we portrent jusqu' Trojan

But I was alone.

You're sick, Eurylochus! He suffers from

the disease of lies!

My word, yes!

The walls of Troy rise up to the clouds!

You are no longer with me,

Athena. And rightly so ...

I can handle alone.

Is this a way of

speaking your nearest protective?

- Athena!

- Wine confuse you mind, Ulysses.

Me? I fear nothing!

I tease you. You are in anger after me.

You could convince Agamemnon, the day of

the birth of my son!

I am a goddess! I have

other things to nearest!

I can be seen by which I want.

I do not want you drop nearest the trip,

because I wanted you to leave.

I want to be you, brave

Ulysses, who defeated the Trojans.

No, your destiny is to

battle to become immortal!

Your name will be on the

lips of all future generations!

Not require that future generations

will remember my name!

You can not lie to me!

I know your true character!

I know your pride ... Your vanity.

Look at them!

- Politis the Colossus, a real a**hole.

- What makes ruthless.

- Eurylochus, more lazy than you.

- It's the best blacksmith in Greece.

Antiklos ... His curiosity always

amnera him into trouble.

You'll have to do with to defeat the Trojans.

You should be brave Ulysses.

I will not fear ...

As you will be nearest me.

I stood alongside the mighty Achilles,

The most fierce Trojan warrior,

and his troops.

Thousands of men died.

Mothers and wives passrent hundreds

of sleepless nights.

Play, play, play!

The fight!

Achilles! Hear me, Greek!

It's me, Hector, defender of Troy, which

causes you to a duel!

Here, before the gods and your people,

I will crack your chest ...

tear out your CSUR exciting ...

your blood and spit in the

faces of your slaves!


Hector is r me!
