The Odyssey The Odyssey is a film that contains many desirable and undesirable parts of the world and life that are well depicted The film is very clear about which aspects are pleasant and which are unwanted Odysseus and his men undergo many hardships but there are traits displayed that are decent as well as those that are not The film does well in portraying all of these with the use of proper emotions and effective scenes There are many items in The Odyssey which suggest desirable aspects of human nature The main one would be family Odysseus treasures his family as much as life itself He tries everything in his power to return to them He risks his life to go into the Underworld to find out how to return to them as quickly as he can Another item proven desirable by the film is food The food on the island of Ithaca is plentiful and when Odysseus and his men leave the pine for it Teamwork is an idea that is used in the film with desirable outcomes In the cave of Polyphemus the whole crew works together to sharpen the log into a point They then heave it up to blind Polyphemus If they had not worked together this would have been unachievable Being cunning and wise are two traits that worked for the better of the crew on the film With Odysseus thinking ahead and putting Polyphemus to sleep instead of attacking him most of his crew was able to escape safely The Odyssey also includes items which are quite undesirable One of which is being away from ones family Odysseus constantly wants to be back home on his island of Ithaca with his wife and child He attempts many feats to be able to return to them For example he travels to many islands in search of a way home He ends up going to Hades
