A man talks about how he will make a woman taken prisoner give him a bath, and then says “and who knows what else” implying sexual context. There are a few scenes where sexual violence is implied, however we don’t actually see or hear definitively that this occurs.


In the director’s cut only, a woman’s nude scene is reframed so that her nipples are visible when she drops her dress and later when she is talking to Paris. There is also a much longer shot of her naked butt before she sits up.
In the director’s cut version there is a very brief display of rape. Two soldiers force a woman against a wall, lift her skirt and begin thrusting whilst she screams. This scene can easily be missed, as it is on the far left of the screen during a siege with considerable amounts of activity. Nonetheless, it is the most explicit reference to rape in the movie and occurs approximately 3 hrs in, right at the end.


Many sexual tensions throughout
Achilles is seen sleeping in a tent with two naked women. No sexual activity is going on, but his butt is visible. One woman’s breasts and pubic region are dimly visible.
Helen drops her dress, but it is out of frame and no nudity is seen. She is briefly seen lying facedown on a bed, and her bare buttocks are visible.
A few sexual comments.
Helen wears a dress that reveals cleavage.
Achilles tells Hector to go home and “make love” to his wife.

Achilles and Briseis have sex. No nudity, but he is on top of her and lifts her dress up to proceed. Sex implied. They are later seen laying together naked, although there is no nudity. They are covered by sheets. In the director’s cut, their intercourse is shown. Achilles seems to be fully nude with his rear exposed. Briseis is only wearing a long rag, with no undergarments. Her groin is visible briefly. Scene lasts for a minute or so.


Film review:Translated by www.rabudo-ru.com


Achilles was the most famous warrior in ancient Greek history, so that philosophers would talk about him. Zeno put forward the paradox of “Achilles can’t catch up with the Tortoise”, that is, he regarded Achilles as a strong and good running hero. It is said that Achilles grew up in medicine with his heel held by his mother since childhood, which gave him a body beyond mortals and an almost indestructible body, and the only thing that was not soaked was his heel. Achilles was also killed. “Achilles heel” was later described as that no matter how powerful and perfect a person or thing is, it will have fatal defects.

Peter starring in this “Troy” may be renamed “Achilles” more appropriate. The story mainly revolves around Achilles. The famous battle of Troy in history retreats as a background to show Achilles’ tragic fate.

In the film, Achilles is brave and good at fighting but rebellious. He is the most outstanding warrior under Agamemnon and the one Agamemnon hates most. He didn’t want to obey Agamemnon’s orders, because he didn’t like a king waging war for his own selfish desires. He didn’t even want to fight in the name of the Greeks, because he knew it was just an excuse. He knew that “Greece was strong enough before I was born.” However, there was one reason he could not resist.

In fact, the theme of the film was clearly declared at the beginning, “human beings continue to pursue eternal life. We should go down through the ages and let future generations know our glory and the great love that once happened to us.” Achilles went to the battlefield just because Odysseus said that “heroes who participated in the war will remain famous forever”. Although his mother clearly told him before departure, “if you go to Troy, you will remain famous forever, but as long as you go to Troy, you will never come back.”

Agamemnon said, “Achilles belongs to the past. He is arrogant and will not be loyal to any country.” Agamemnon has the ambition of “six kings, one in the world”. He cleverly grasped Achilles’ proud mentality and made him wear armor willingly. Achilles knew “what men want, but I want more.” The longing for glory and the desire to remain famous forever became his “Achilles heel”.

The most impressive scene of the play happened on the night after Achilles killed Hector, the prince of Troy. The king of Troy came to him to get his beloved son back. Achilles knelt in front of Hector’s body and said to him, “we’ll meet soon, brother.” At that moment, Achilles had thoroughly understood the meaning of his existence and understood his destiny. He learned that everything has to pay a price. When he killed so many brothers, husbands and relatives without mercy just because of his glory, he has become the same kind of person as Agamemnon, whom he despised.

Hector, who died in the hands of Achilles, is almost a perfect hero. In his life, he has only a very simple desire to fear the gods and protect his wife and home. He is a good son, brother, husband and father, and an opponent worthy of everyone’s respect. He has saved his brother many times; He felt guilty for wrongly killing a young man; He finally bravely went to Achilles. Hector is a mirror of Achilles. It is Hector that makes the proud and vain Achilles recognize himself. Of course, it’s too late. As Achilles’ mother predicted, when he sailed away from Mycenae, he would never come back.

Helen and Paris also set sail and never came back. The battle of Troy began because of them. If Achilles has a name because of “glory”, they have a name because of love. The little prince’s attitude towards love is completely opposite to his performance on the battlefield. He knows how much disaster it will bring to himself and Troy if he takes Helen, and he still has no hesitation. Perhaps this is because he is young and romantic. His brother Hector would never do so. However, when Troy was broken, Paris finally understood the true meaning of love. He chose to fight and be a man that his brother would be proud of him. He knew that love was not taking, but giving. If he continued to run away, it was not worth winning Helen’s love. He wants to be a real man, as long as he is brave, “no matter this life or the next life, we will get together.”

Finally, Achilles was shot to death by Paris. In fact, no matter who is no longer important, Achilles’ death is only a sacrifice for his own life. The difference between man and God is that man can die, which makes every moment in his life very precious. Achilles had felt the peace brought to him by Briseis before his death. He would not regret the meaningless days of his life.
