He's calling.

0:03:580:04:00

-Paris!

-His horses can wait.

0:04:010:04:04

I've got a beast of my own to take care of.

0:04:040:04:06

Where've you been?

0:04:120:04:13

I was...checking the fences.

0:04:130:04:16

What happened?

0:04:180:04:20

Bloody wolves scared them! Let's round them up, huh?

0:04:200:04:23

Shit.

0:04:280:04:29

-Paris!

DISTANT LAUGHTER

0:05:230:05:27

Paris. Son of Agelaus the herdsman.

0:05:490:05:52

Who wants to know?

0:05:540:05:56

You've been chosen to resolve a dispute.

0:05:570:05:59

Decide which of these three goddesses is the finest.

0:06:010:06:05

Goddesses?

0:06:050:06:06

Whoever you choose will receive the golden apple.

0:06:060:06:09

I herd cows.

0:06:120:06:14

How can I decide something like that?

0:06:140:06:16

Zeus, bringer of storms, selected you personally.

0:06:160:06:20

Why me?

0:06:220:06:24

It's just a game.

0:06:240:06:26

But maybe we have the wrong person.

0:06:320:06:34

No. We have the right person.

0:06:340:06:37

Take it.

0:06:430:06:44

As I thought.

0:06:470:06:49

No good will come of this.

0:06:580:06:59

Quiet, Hermes, you've said enough.

0:06:590:07:01

Hera.

0:07:030:07:04

Give me the apple, Paris...

0:07:110:07:12

..and I'll make you the most powerful man alive.

0:07:160:07:19

-Don't listen to her.

-Athena.

0:07:190:07:21

Choose me, Paris.

0:07:260:07:28

With me by your side,

0:07:300:07:32

you'll be the most admired man on earth.

0:07:320:07:34

You know me, of course...

0:07:360:07:37

..from your dreams.

0:07:400:07:42

Aphrodite.

0:07:420:07:44

Goddess of love.

0:07:450:07:46

Grant me the apple...

0:07:490:07:51

..and I'll give you the most beautiful woman in the world.

0:07:520:07:55

Who is she?

0:07:570:07:59

Hm! You'll know her when you see her.

0:07:590:08:01

Time to decide.

0:08:040:08:05

INDISTINCT WHISPERS

0:08:080:08:13

I choose you.

0:08:250:08:26

THUNDER ROLLS

WIND RISES

0:08:300:08:34

THEY SCREAM

0:08:360:08:43

-What have you done?

-Enough!

0:08:460:08:48

The mortal has spoken.

0:08:490:08:51

HE SCREAMS

0:08:520:08:54

COW MOOS

0:09:030:09:05

Wait! When do I meet my prize?

0:09:110:09:14

Why don't you marry her, huh?

0:09:510:09:53

You won't find better.

0:09:540:09:55

Ya!

0:10:430:10:45

Where are you?

0:11:140:11:15

Keep your distance.

0:11:310:11:32

Who are they?

0:11:380:11:39

Them?

0:11:410:11:43

None of your kind.

0:11:430:11:44

What are they doing?

0:11:450:11:47

Training. For the city games.

0:11:470:11:50

Nice horse.

0:11:530:11:54

Hey! What the hell are you doing?!

0:12:020:12:05

Hey!

0:12:320:12:33

Woohoo!

0:12:390:12:42

Whoo!

0:12:550:12:56

You may be lords in the city. But here I rule.

0:12:590:13:02

We're not lords, friend.

0:13:020:13:04

We're princes of Troy.

0:13:040:13:06

Priam's sons. And you're out of your depth.

0:13:080:13:13

No hard feelings. Just be more careful next time.

0:13:130:13:16

Take me to the games.

0:13:180:13:20

I'll bet my life I can beat any of you at any event.

0:13:220:13:26

I'll give you one chance to take that back.

0:13:300:13:32

CHATTER AND CHEERING

0:13:590:14:02

You're next.

0:14:550:14:56

My brother, Hector, will fight you for our family's honour.

0:15:070:15:10

Bow down or accept his challenge.

0:15:110:15:14

Are you mad?

0:15:190:15:20

LAUGHTER AND CHEERING

0:15:220:15:25

Take it.

0:15:320:15:33

CHEERS AND APPLAUSE

0:15:510:15:53

PARIS ROARS

0:16:030:16:05

HE SCREAMS

0:16:380:16:41

PARIS GAGS

0:17:080:17:11

Hector, stop!

0:17:170:17:18

Paris!

0:17:230:17:25

Get up.

0:17:340:17:35

SHE GASPS

0:17:550:17:56

A miracle has occurred.

0:18:030:18:04

This boy is Alexander.

0:18:070:18:09

Our son.

0:18:120:18:13

The gods have saved his life!

0:18:150:18:17

They've brought him back to us.

0:18:180:18:20

CHEERING

0:18:250:18:28

The blood ran black.

0:19:100:19:12

You can't do this. I beg you...

0:19:120:19:15

I prayed for his return every day for 20 years.

0:19:150:19:19

-We both did.

-My Lord, please listen...

0:19:190:19:21

We did listen to you.

0:19:210:19:22

-I won't suffer again like that, I won't.

-I know.

0:19:230:19:26

You're making a great mistake.

0:19:260:19:29

The gods do not forget.

0:19:290:19:31

KNOCKING

0:19:340:19:36

Your Majesties.

0:19:360:19:37

Leave us, Lithos. We'll discuss this further in the morning.

0:19:390:19:42

Let me look at you.

0:19:530:19:54

You must have a thousand questions.

0:20:000:20:02

I'm a shepherd.

0:20:040:20:05

I'm not good with words.

0:20:070:20:09

You're not a shepherd any more.

0:20:090:20:10

It's hard, I know. But you must understand

0:20:110:20:13

that Paris is not your name.

0:20:130:20:15

And although he has shown you great kindness...

0:20:160:20:19

..Agelaus is not your father.

0:20:200:20:23

Your name is Alexander, Prince of Troy.

0:20:230:20:26

You were taken by wolves from this window when you were three days old.

0:20:280:20:33

Agelaus found you on the mountain track where the wolves left you.

0:20:340:20:39

I found you wrapped in a parcel of cloth.

0:20:390:20:42

I named you Paris.

0:20:440:20:45

It's a miracle you survived.

0:20:450:20:47

I thought you were dead...

0:20:490:20:51

Agelaus, thank you.

0:20:540:20:55

The city owes you a great debt.

0:20:560:20:59

Now, please, say goodbye to my son.

0:20:590:21:02

Father.

0:21:140:21:15

Goodbye...Alexander.

0:21:260:21:28

Come here.

0:21:400:21:41

I've missed you so much.

0:21:480:21:50

-To your new family.

-CHEERING

0:22:060:22:11

Come here.

0:22:220:22:24

BABY CRIES IN DISTANCE

0:22:460:22:51

SHE GASPS

0:23:000:23:01

What have you given to calm her?

0:23:040:23:05

She refuses to drink anything. She hasn't been like this in years.

0:23:050:23:09

HYPERVENTILATING

0:23:090:23:13

Cassandra? I'm here.

0:23:130:23:15

-Mother...

-It's all right, Cassandra.

0:23:150:23:18

The new Prince... I see it in his eyes.

0:23:180:23:22

Black blood!

0:23:220:23:23

Shh.

0:23:240:23:26

Don't let him back. Don't let him back.

0:23:260:23:29

It's all right, my love.

0:23:330:23:35

It's all right.

0:23:350:23:36

There.

0:23:390:23:40

-Give her what she needs.

-Yes, my lady.

0:23:410:23:44

Shh.

0:23:440:23:46

Close the windows.

0:23:480:23:49

Please. Please!

0:24:010:24:04

-My baby, please, no!

-BABY'S CRIES ECHO

0:24:040:24:08

No! Please, my baby!

0:24:080:24:11

LAUGHTER AND CHATTER

0:24:420:24:47

HE GRUNTS

0:24:540:24:56

Come on, up you get!

0:24:590:25:00

Let me try one more time.

0:25:000:25:02

Come on, Cassandra.

0:25:590:26:00

Come on.

0:26:020:26:03

Our sister, Cassandra, why doesn't she come to meals?

0:26:030:26:07

Cassandra is unwell.

0:26:070:26:08

Can't I at least meet her?

0:26:100:26:11

You focus on your own behaviour and leave her to us.

0:26:110:26:13

My behaviour?

0:26:130:26:15

I'm sorry if I'm a disappointment to you all.

0:26:150:26:18

No. No, you're not.

0:26:180:26:19

But the party's over.

0:26:210:26:22

No more visits to the lower city. No more late nights.

0:26:230:26:26

It's time for work.

0:26:260:26:28

I thought princes didn't work.

0:26:280:26:30

HE CHUCKLES I thought that was the point.

0:26:300:26:33

Well, they don't herd cows, if that's what you mean.

0:26:330:26:37

-Maybe you should just send me back.

-No-one's sending you back.

0:26:370:26:40

And no-one's asking you to change who you are.

0:26:400:26:42

Pandarus.

0:26:440:26:45

-My lord?

-What's this?

0:26:490:26:52

Your first official engagement.

0:26:520:26:55

I have a friend across the waters.

0:26:550:26:57

-King Menelaus of Sparta.

-Father...

0:26:570:26:59

I want you to represent me.

0:26:590:27:02

Pandarus will go with you. Introduce yourself, pay tribute.

0:27:020:27:05

The rediscovered son.

0:27:050:27:08

Strengthen the ties between our two lands.

0:27:080:27:10

-How exactly do I do that?

-Well, you'll learn.

0:27:100:27:13

Prove yourself a prince, son.

0:27:160:27:18

Well then.

0:27:210:27:22

Better get dressed.

0:27:230:27:25

-He's not ready.

-Let me go with him.

0:27:350:27:37

No. He'll learn on his own.

0:27:370:27:39

If this is work...

0:27:580:28:00

..let me work.

0:28:010:28:03

Land ahead!

0:28:080:28:10

Your quarters are in the south of the palace

0:28:450:28:47

and afford the finest views of the region.

0:28:470:28:49

Tonight, the king will hold a banquet

0:28:550:28:57

in honour of Prince Alexander.

0:28:570:28:59

You should sleep now.

0:29:010:29:04

You need to be on form tonight.

0:29:040:29:06

My Lord.

0:29:500:29:51

We bring you...oil of iris,

0:29:590:30:03

frankincense, rose and musk,

0:30:030:30:06

spices from the east, cumin and...

0:30:060:30:11

-WHISPERS:

-Turmeric.

-..turmeric.

0:30:110:30:13

From Africa, boxes of ebony. Ostrich eggs.

0:30:140:30:18

All of Troy's traders pay tribute to King Menelaus.

0:30:180:30:21

They bring the world to Sparta.

0:30:210:30:23

Let us feast to celebrate the new Prince of Troy.

0:30:250:30:28

The Queen not joining us?

0:30:380:30:39

Helen's unwell tonight.

0:30:410:30:43

I'm sorry to hear that.

0:30:440:30:46

She will feast when she recovers.

0:30:460:30:47

So, your story is a strange one.

0:30:490:30:52

I should like to hear it from your mouth.

0:30:540:30:56

It was a miracle of the gods.

0:30:580:31:00

I was stolen from a palace... DOOR OPENS

0:31:010:31:04

I'm sorry. I'm late.

0:31:240:31:26

My darling, you are recovered.

0:31:290:31:31

Curiosity defeated my tiredness.

0:31:320:31:35

Sit. Save your strength.

0:31:350:31:37

I was just asking Prince Alexander here to recount his charming story.

0:31:440:31:48

-Are those your birds, my Lady?

-Yes.

0:31:500:31:52

My father always let them fly free in the house.

0:31:540:31:57

One of his little indulgences.

0:31:570:31:58

I interrupted you, my Lord.

0:32:010:32:03

-Er...

-Please.

0:32:030:32:06

HE CLEARS THROAT

0:32:060:32:07

I was stolen from the palace window as a baby by wolves.

0:32:080:32:11

This shepherd found me on the mountain,

0:32:120:32:14

and took me into his house.

0:32:140:32:16

Unaware of your true nature.

0:32:160:32:18

Yes.

0:32:180:32:21

He called me Paris.

0:32:210:32:22

He taught me to ride, and run cattle.

0:32:220:32:25

For 20 years, that was my life.

0:32:250:32:27

-WHISPERS:

-My Lady...

0:32:270:32:29

Then, a few weeks ago, I saw the Princes training on the plain.

0:32:290:32:32

-I challenged them.

-And you won?

0:32:320:32:34

Yes.

0:32:340:32:36

-Until you fought your brother, Hector.

-Yes.

0:32:360:32:39

He would have killed me.

0:32:400:32:42

But my father recognised me from a birth mark,

0:32:420:32:44

and I was spared.

0:32:440:32:46

Show me.

0:32:460:32:47

To think something so small could change so much.

0:32:570:32:59

How did you two get together?

0:33:070:33:08

No. No, it's fine.

0:33:120:33:14

It's a good story and he should know it.

0:33:150:33:19

My brother won Helen for me in competition.

0:33:190:33:22

He fought 100 lords for Sparta,

0:33:220:33:25

and the right to Helen's hand.

0:33:250:33:27

So you didn't win her yourself?

0:33:270:33:29

Be careful, Prince.

0:33:350:33:37

Your father wrote in his letters you had much to learn.

0:33:380:33:41

HE SLURPS

0:33:410:33:42

What else did he say?

0:33:440:33:45

I can't read, so I wouldn't know.

0:33:470:33:49

It's time for bed, I think.

0:33:490:33:51

The Queen must not over-strain herself and you...

0:33:510:33:54

..you must be tired after your long journey.

0:33:540:33:57

Everyone keeps telling me that I should be tired. But...

0:33:570:34:00

HE SCOFFS ..I'm not.

0:34:000:34:03

But the Queen is.

0:34:030:34:04

DISTANT MUSIC PLAYS

MUSIC AND LIGHT CHATTER

0:35:020:35:09

The Queen's women are beautiful.

0:35:540:35:57

They've been friends of my wife's since birth.

0:35:590:36:03

You're a lucky man.

0:36:030:36:04

You think so?

0:36:040:36:06

I miss my real home.

0:36:070:36:08

Have you been to Mycenae?

0:36:090:36:11

No.

0:36:110:36:12

You should. There we have real culture.

0:36:120:36:16

This place is a wilderness,

0:36:170:36:19

though I've done my best to tame it.

0:36:190:36:21

But look at her.

0:36:230:36:25

She's worth it all.

0:36:270:36:28

But we were saying...

0:36:290:36:31

Helen.

0:36:320:36:33

Bring our daughter to meet our guest.

0:36:410:36:43

Hermione.

0:36:440:36:46

Meet the Prince of Troy.

0:36:500:36:52

Beautiful, isn't she?

0:36:540:36:56

And with brains to match.

0:36:560:36:58

You may go now, Hermione.

0:36:590:37:01

No, wait.

0:37:020:37:04

Hermione will need a husband soon.

0:37:040:37:06

Dynastic marriages strengthen all parties involved.

0:37:080:37:11

They are like hands held fast across the water.

0:37:110:37:14

That's the reason your father sent you here, Prince.

0:37:170:37:20

Or didn't you know?

0:37:210:37:22

I'm honoured to be considered worthy of her.

0:37:250:37:27

-I didn't say you were.

-Oh!

0:37:290:37:31

Not yet.

0:37:310:37:33

Come, Hermione.

0:37:350:37:36

We should find time to discuss that other matter, Pandarus.

0:37:390:37:42

Whenever you wish, my Lord.

0:37:420:37:44

Did you know about this?

0:37:490:37:51

Why? Doesn't it please you?

0:37:510:37:54

Of course it does.

0:37:540:37:56

If it's my father's wish.

0:37:560:37:57

And yours.

0:37:590:38:01

It's business.

0:38:010:38:02

My husband wants a treaty with Troy.

0:38:040:38:07

My daughter is part of the deal.

0:38:070:38:09

Is Troy THAT important?

0:38:090:38:11

Troy controls the straits from Asia.

0:38:110:38:13

Everything passes through your city.

0:38:140:38:18

Tin from the east to make bronze.

0:38:180:38:20

Spices from India.

0:38:210:38:23

So everyone wants a piece.

0:38:250:38:27

Welcome to the world, Prince.

0:38:280:38:30

Why do you look at me like that?

0:38:360:38:38

Surprised I have a mind of my own?

0:38:380:38:40

Not surprised in the slightest.

0:38:430:38:45

How did you sleep?

0:38:470:38:48

Not so well.

0:38:560:38:57

In Troy, we've got the sea breeze,

0:39:000:39:02

cools the skin. Here...

0:39:020:39:04

..the heat's like a furnace.

0:39:060:39:08

And then I thought I heard music.

0:39:120:39:14

But maybe I was wrong.

0:39:160:39:17

Do you know the story of Actaeon?

0:39:260:39:28

No. Should I?

0:39:300:39:33

He spied on the bathing goddess Diana

0:39:350:39:39

and was turned into a stag for his pains.

0:39:390:39:43

Dogs chased him through the forest...

0:39:440:39:47

..and tore his flesh to pieces.

0:39:500:39:52

Maybe it was worth it.

0:39:550:39:58

They're staying longer.

0:40:070:40:09

Pandarus thinks that Menelaus will agree to the marriage

0:40:100:40:12

to his daughter.

0:40:120:40:14

I don't like him being away.

0:40:140:40:16

He's reckless.

0:40:170:40:18

Well, I was reckless at his age,

0:40:180:40:21

or I'd never have won you.

0:40:210:40:22

The gods have forgiven us, Hecuba.

0:40:250:40:27

Why can't you?

0:40:280:40:30

Odysseus of Ithaca sends his greatest tributes and affections,

0:40:310:40:34

along with the finest alabaster from Assyria,

0:40:340:40:37

lapis lazuli from Bactra, and jasper from Minoa.

0:40:370:40:41

All of Troy is grateful and pays tribute to the great King Odysseus.

0:40:410:40:46

King Agamemnon of Mycenae sends his respects

0:40:510:40:54

and, along with it, a chariot of gold.

0:40:540:40:57

King Agamemnon won the beauteous Helen

0:40:580:41:02

and the kingdom of Sparta for his brother.

0:41:020:41:05

He knows the true value of a gem.

0:41:050:41:07

May I walk with your daughter, my Lord?

0:41:190:41:22

It's only right we get to know each other.

0:41:220:41:24

Of course. Hermione.

0:41:280:41:31

Show the Prince the chamber of silks.

0:41:310:41:34

These were a gift from an Indian king.

0:41:460:41:48

He tried to buy my mother's hand, but...

0:41:500:41:52

..she turned him down.

0:41:530:41:55

Why?

0:41:550:41:57

She refused all offers until her father forced her to take a husband.

0:41:570:42:01

Didn't she want to marry?

0:42:010:42:02

Must we always talk about her?

0:42:040:42:05

What do you want to talk about?

0:42:090:42:10

I don't know.

0:42:130:42:14

I'm not sure what to say or do.

0:42:150:42:19

I'm not like my mother, I'm not skilled in these things.

0:42:200:42:24

I'm not good with men.

0:42:280:42:29

I don't know what to do.

0:42:310:42:33

It's all right.

0:42:340:42:35

It's all right.

0:42:370:42:38

Hermione. Your father wants to see you.

0:42:480:42:52

He asked me to come here.

0:42:520:42:54

He didn't ask you to make a fool of yourself.

0:42:560:42:59

I'll show the Prince the silks myself.

0:42:590:43:01

Stop playing games.

0:43:120:43:13

Games, my Lady?

0:43:150:43:17

It may suit my husband to do so.

0:43:180:43:20

It does not suit you.

0:43:200:43:21

Hermione's a girl. She's not ready for courtship.

0:43:210:43:24

I wasn't courting her.

0:43:240:43:26

I was comforting her.

0:43:260:43:28

That's not what it looked like.

0:43:280:43:30

Well, that's what it was.

0:43:300:43:31

-We should go back to the dinner.

-Not yet.

0:43:330:43:35

All those bloody dinners. They're stifling.

0:43:350:43:39

These silks were given to my father...

0:43:440:43:47

-TOGETHER:

-..by an Indian king.

0:43:470:43:49

You turned him down.

0:43:490:43:50

-I know.

-Then there's nothing more to say.

0:43:520:43:55

We should go.

0:43:550:43:56

Please don't look at me like that.

0:43:580:44:00

I'm your hostess and Queen of this palace.

0:44:010:44:04

And does that make you happy?

0:44:040:44:06

It's no concern of yours how I feel.

0:44:060:44:08

I'll bet this palace was once very different

0:44:100:44:12

when it was yours and your father's.

0:44:120:44:14

And you were different too.

0:44:160:44:17

What do you mean?

0:44:190:44:20

Your world here was wild.

0:44:200:44:23

Your civilised husband didn't want that.

0:44:230:44:25

It scared him. So he tamed it.

0:44:250:44:27

And he tamed you too.

0:44:270:44:29

I'm a woman. We don't get to select our fate.

0:44:290:44:32

What fate?!

0:44:320:44:33

A life of gritting your teeth through banquets?

0:44:340:44:37

Drugging yourself into oblivion?

0:44:370:44:39

I know what freedom is.

0:44:390:44:42

And this...this isn't it.

0:44:420:44:44

You're royal now.

0:44:470:44:49

Duty will be your master too.

0:44:490:44:50

No-one can master me.

0:44:500:44:52

Except maybe you.

0:44:560:44:57

Be careful what you say.

0:44:580:45:00

Caution never got me anywhere.

0:45:030:45:05

What gives you the right...?

0:45:060:45:07

The gods.

0:45:100:45:12

Please don't.

0:45:160:45:17

Are you happy?

0:45:190:45:21

Tell me yes and I'll go.

0:45:210:45:23

I'll marry your daughter, just as they all want.

0:45:230:45:25

KNOCKING

0:45:290:45:30

KNOCKING CONTINUES

0:45:340:45:37

Open up!

0:45:370:45:38

What is it?

0:45:400:45:42

My Lady, I come from Mycenae.

0:45:420:45:44

The King's father is dead.

0:45:440:45:45

Your father.

0:45:530:45:55

My brother's set sail for Crete.

0:46:030:46:05

I'm to join him there for the funeral.

0:46:050:46:07

-I'll come with you.

-No. We have a guest. You stay.

0:46:070:46:10

My Lord, if it's easier for us to leave, just say.

0:46:100:46:13

I'll not hear it. My father has been sick for some time.

0:46:130:46:16

His death was not unexpected.

0:46:160:46:18

But we must look to the future.

0:46:180:46:20

Celebrate new alliances.

0:46:210:46:22

You have spirit, Alexander. I admire that.

0:46:270:46:29

Please, stay.

0:46:320:46:33

Get to know Hermione.

0:46:350:46:36

Come, Helen.

0:46:380:46:40

Five days.

0:46:530:46:54

-HELEN:

-Grant his soul joy, give him peace.

0:47:170:47:21

Grant his soul joy, give him peace.

0:47:210:47:25

Grant his soul joy, give him peace.

0:47:250:47:28

-Grant his soul joy...

-HE EXHALES FORCEFULLY

0:47:280:47:31

Death be his welcome god.

0:47:330:47:36

Let him into your majesty.

0:47:360:47:38

Give him peace.

0:47:380:47:39

Death be his welcome god.

0:47:400:47:43

Let him into your majesty.

0:47:430:47:45

Give him peace.

0:47:450:47:46

Death be his welcome god.

0:47:480:47:50

Let him into your majesty.

0:47:500:47:53

Give him peace.

0:47:530:47:54

Death be his welcome god.

0:47:560:47:58

Let him into your majesty.

0:47:580:48:00

Give him peace.

0:48:000:48:03

Death be his welcome god.

0:48:030:48:06

Let him into your majesty.

0:48:060:48:08

Give him peace.

0:48:080:48:09

Brother.

0:48:110:48:13

Why do you stare at her chair?

0:48:550:48:57

Men are fools.

0:49:020:49:03

-My Lord!

-Pack the bags. We're leaving.

0:49:080:49:11

-His Highness asked...

-SHOUTS: I don't care what he asked!

0:49:110:49:14

THUNDER RUMBLES

0:49:140:49:15

A storm is coming. We must wait till morning.

0:49:150:49:18

No, we're leaving now!

0:49:180:49:19

-HORSE WHINNIES

-My Lord! My Lord!

0:49:200:49:24

We must wait till morning!

0:49:260:49:27

-Get these carts loaded! Quickly!

-Yes, sir.

0:49:340:49:37

Come on!

0:49:400:49:43

Get these loaded.

0:49:440:49:45

Get these loaded, come on.

0:49:480:49:50

HE SCREAMS

0:49:580:50:00

KNOCKING

0:50:050:50:07

Why didn't you leave?

0:51:050:51:06

I tried.

0:51:100:51:11

The gods didn't let me.

0:51:200:51:21

I tried to hide from you.

0:51:260:51:27

I locked my door.

0:51:300:51:32

I couldn't sleep.

0:51:340:51:35

Three days in darkness.

0:51:390:51:40

I've gone mad.

0:51:430:51:44

You've made me mad.

0:51:460:51:47

What?

0:53:020:53:04

I was thinking about your name.

0:53:080:53:10

Paris.

0:53:120:53:13

I like it.

0:53:160:53:18

It suits you better.

0:53:200:53:21

There's something I haven't told you.

0:53:370:53:39

When I was a shepherd...

0:53:420:53:43

..I was told by Aphrodite I'd meet the world's most beautiful woman...

0:53:470:53:51

..and that she'd be mine.

0:53:530:53:56

And you think that's me?

0:53:580:53:59

I'm sure of it.

0:53:590:54:00

You're a fool.

0:54:010:54:03

-SHOUTS IN DISTANCE:

-My Lord! My Lord!

0:54:070:54:10

Prince Alexander!

0:54:130:54:16

My Lord!

0:54:160:54:17

Your men are calling.

0:54:210:54:23

My Lord!

0:54:230:54:25

You should go.

0:54:300:54:31

I can't leave you.

0:54:310:54:32

They can't find you here. My husband will have you killed.

0:54:350:54:38

When will I see you again?

0:54:380:54:40

I don't know.

0:54:410:54:42

Maybe at your wedding to my daughter.

0:54:420:54:44

-That will never happen.

-Well then, never.

0:54:440:54:46

-Just go. Please.

-Come with me.

0:54:500:54:52

I can't.

0:54:550:54:57

Come now, before your husband gets back.

0:54:570:55:00

It's impossible. I'd be seen. People would know.

0:55:000:55:02

You say that you are a woman and that you have no choice in life.

0:55:020:55:05

But that's not true. You have a choice now.

0:55:050:55:07

I have a daughter.

0:55:070:55:08

I can't just walk away.

0:55:100:55:11

-She doesn't deserve that.

-And what about you?

0:55:130:55:15

What do you deserve?

0:55:190:55:20

Please, just...just go!

0:55:320:55:36

Are the horses ready?

0:55:480:55:49

Yes, and the weather's much improved.

0:55:490:55:52

Make peace, we're not done here.

0:55:520:55:54

You're leaving?

0:55:540:55:56

I'm afraid so.

0:55:560:55:57

When will you return?

0:55:570:55:59

My Lord, the Queen sends her apologies. She is feeling unwell.

0:56:000:56:05

She won't be down to say goodbye.

0:56:050:56:07

She is sending a gift for your mother, Queen Hecuba.

0:56:070:56:11

See that it's carefully loaded onto the ship.

0:56:110:56:14

My mother should be here to bid you farewell.

0:56:180:56:21

What does it matter?

0:56:220:56:24

Is that why you're leaving early?

0:56:240:56:26

Because of her?

0:56:260:56:28

She rejected you, didn't she?

0:56:310:56:33

Don't come back.

0:56:370:56:38

Let's get going!

0:56:540:56:56

Let's go!

0:56:590:57:00

King Priam seeks your blessing for this new child.

0:57:320:57:36

Oh, gods, be merciful.

0:57:360:57:39

Where is my wife?!

0:58:340:58:37

I'm not a possession, I'm a woman.

0:58:370:58:39

I think, I feel.

0:58:390:58:41

What if they come for her? Agamemnon needs no excuse for a fight.

0:58:410:58:44

We are running out of time.

0:58:460:58:47

Your wedding will bless the voyage to Troy.

0:58:470:58:50

This doesn't look like a marriage altar.

0:58:500:58:52

Last time there was a war here, I was your age.

0:58:530:58:56

I want your loyalty, Zeus, to Greece and to me.

0:58:560:58:59

This city bows to no-one.

0:58:590:59:01

We will bring the rage of the gods down on your Asiatic heads!

0:59:010:59:05

Following a fateful encounter with the gods, the life of young herdsman Paris changes forever. At the Troy city games, he discovers something extraordinary, and on a trip to Sparta, he falls in love with unpredictable and far-reaching consequences.
