Trojan Women
Film Review


The Trojan Women earns a sympathetic but low 3 star rating from me. This is the type of film that I want to come off. This is the same director that did Iphigenia and Antigone and both came off very well as tragedies. Unfortunately, with Trojan Women the acting is very mixed. At times it is very good, but it is also often overwrought. I have to put this down to the directing and I suspect there may have been communication issues since Irene Papas comes off solid as Helen. Also, the sound is often very poor with the windy, open outdoor location and that may have caused the actresses to frequently shout their lines. Still, as a lover of Greek myth and drama, I find Trojan Women passable and admire the efforts made.

3.0 / 5.0
