Classic works performed repeatedly by playwrights and audiences. When Prince Paris (Orlando Bloom) of Troy was invited to a banquet by the King of Sparta in Greece, he fell in love with the king’s wife Helen (Diane Kruger) and fell in love with him. The beautiful appearance of the country made him unable to control himself, so he took Helen back to his country. This move aroused the anger of the Greek countries.
