Summary:
At the end of the war, Odysseus, the wandering hero, with his companions begins his sail back home to the Mediterranean. The conclusion of his adventure is delayed by many natural obstacles and he takes an internal journey of fleeting memories of his childhood, his parents, love for a beautiful girl, nostalgia for the past, regret for what he did, and the deep silence that envelops everything. He confronts the most terrible loneliness following a shipwreck in which all the comrades perish.

Atmospheric, with some beautiful shots, and I kinda liked that you could really just invent your own story/mythology about what's going on. I did zone out and disengage sometimes though.

Only one reply for this? That's a shame. It's beautiful.
