OK. Let's suppose you don't know who Ralf König is.
This guy is a German gay comic author whose comics have been previously adapted to the big screen ("Maybe, maybe not", "The Killer Condom") with different result.
Lisistrata is his adaptation of Aristófanes' play about a woman from Athens that begins a women strike in Athens and Spartha till war between both cities is over.
You may wonder: what's the big deal with the strike?
That they don't have sex with their partners, so they carry all day gigantic erections that prevent them of making war with a minimum of dignity.
That is, till the gay and lesbian community of both Spartha and Athens notice that this is a golden chance.
How the situation develops leads to one of the funniest comic-books ever written, a comic that spread all over Europe becoming a cult classic.
While the film is primarily a bawdy comedy (even more so than the Greek play),
it also contains interesting tidbits of historic truth, such as a relatively accurate life-size replica of the Pallas Athene statue by Phidias in the Parthenon.
The scene in which one soldier is about to kill an enemy fighter, but is moved by his beauty so much that he spares him and arranges a tête-à-tête with him after the battle,
can be seen as being based on the legend of Achilles and Troilus, son of Priam.
