October 6, 2017

 

 

 

After work and before home is the most mysterious hours in a man's life.

Odysseus, the most famous absent father in Greek mythology, has told his side of the story. Now we shall hear from the women and the children.

下班后,回家前——这是男人一生中最神秘的一段时间。奥德修的老婆孩子等他回家吃晚饭,已经等了20年。“爸爸你去哪儿了?” 小王子特洛马克今年刚满20岁,一个介于男孩和男人之间的微妙年龄。他决定出门找爸爸。却不料,整个成人世界的秘密倾泻在他面前……

《特洛马克》从英雄儿子的角度重新讲述荷马史诗《奥特赛》。
