Description:

This film review describes the challenges of translating the medium of Euripides' ancient Greek drama "Trojan Women" into cinematic technique. The paper explores how Michael Cacoyannis did this in his 1971 adaptation of the Greek tragedy. One method Cacoyannis used was using familiar character archetypes or actors to generate immediate interest in the plot. He also chose famous actresses to star in the film. The reviewer offers his own critique of the film, concluding that rather than making Euripides more intimate, the film only created a wider divide between the great Greek tragedian's world and today's.

Sample of Sources Used:

  • "The Trojan Woman." Directed by Michael Cacoyannis. 1971.
