- Saffron Burrows as Andromache... hey wait a minute! Isn't that a Hobbit
Two nice bows to mythology: Thetis is not a goddess or sea nymph in this
all-too-human story, =but= she plays her scene wading in a tidal pool, makes
at least a shot at prophecy, and gives her son a seashell necklace. Also
Achilles is wounded, if not in the heel and fatally, at least in the
neighborhood of the Achilles tendon, for starters.
I kept laughing at the sun's resolute (and miraculous) determination to rise
in the West - not to mention the llamas which at one point are led through
But on the whole, a not uncreditable bow to the greatest war story of them
