[Update: New trailer added with English subs!]

Back in July of 2008, we showed the first teaser for this incredible looking Croatian film which is set in a "mythical time and space, with contemporary influences and attitudes". We also talked about the couture being heavily influenced by Japanese fashion.. and I still don't know where it is.

Penelope, the mythical character from Homer's The Odyssey, is waiting for her husband Odysseus to return from the Trojan War. She waits for twenty years. Penelope wanders alone through her enormous castle, often in a dreamlike state, each room a different memory. In these rooms she has visions of her husband, and memories of happier times together. In heavy contrast twenty revolting suitors sit at the dining table as a constant reminder of the present, forever eating, drinking, snoring and swearing. They are growing restless of waiting for Penelope to make a decision as to which of them she shall marry. Indeed, it seems, that she will have none of them. Mutiny hangs in the air, and Penelope's loyal maidservants are on the menu. Penelope is transformed by faith and suffering from the passive wife of antiquity into a tragic heroine and she will not wait for her husband to return before she sets things right.

Clip after the break.
