Troy

After reading The Venetian Betrayal by Steve Berry, I wanted to watch Troy again. I never read The Iliad. I was actually confused what the Iliad was about. My mother refreshed my memory with it. Since Troy is based on the Illiad, I decided to watch it while Chris was here. It has Brad Pitt, Orlando Bloom, and Diane Kruger in it. Big Warning: there is lots of violence (of course since it’s about a war) and one sad part. Troy is about the war between the Greeks and Troy. It actually started because Paris was in love

Troy is about the war between the Greeks and Troy. It actually started because Paris was in love with Helen who was married to a king. Paris decides to kidnap Helen and make her Helen of Troy. The king not only wants Helen back but also have Troy for himself.

One thought on “Troy

  1. The Odyssey is one of my favorites, so I have to go back and read the Iliad again every few years… just to remember what all happens. The Iliad is a TOUGH read. It confused me for years… then I read a review somewhere- guess what, it’s confusing. lol. Literally, things happen out of order… dead people reappear in scenes later… lol. Seems it was a collection of stories, pieced together. 🤔

    That being said, I enjoyed the movie more. 😊
