Penthesilea

Penthesilea

(2001)

When the Amazons went to fight alongside the Trojans in the Trojan War, their sudden impact on the battlefield drove the Greeks back, to the extent that they called on their great champion, Achilles, to come to their aid. As there was great honour in defeating another champion, the proud Achilles eagerly went out to confront Penthesilea, the champion and Queen of the Amazons.
