Storyline

After fighting in the Crusades for three years, Dante rides back home to his family estate to reunite with his beloved Beatrice and his father. Dante sees a rider following him, but out of the blue, the man vanishes with no trace. When he arrives home, he sees the servants slaughtered, his father murdered and Beatrice near death. When her soul is going to the heaven, Lucifer takes Beatrice to Hell, telling her that Dante has betrayed her. Dante meets Virgil who guides him to Hell, and the poet explains that Beatrice had a bet with Lucifer that Dante would be faithful to her while in the holy war. In return, Lucifer would protect Dante and bring him back home safe and sound. Upon arrival in Hell, Dante learns that he needs to cross nine circles to reach Lucifer ad on his painful journey, he discovers who doomed his family to suffer in Hell.

29 November 2011 | by VincentiuSee all my reviews

An anime as instrument to expose Dante universe. Strange and full of great intentions. A warrior against demons and Devil, A delicate Beatrice and sage Virgil, love story, action and moral lesson in same skin, show and presentation, ad usum delphini, of a masterpiece. Great intentions and a final strange taste. Dante is only excuse for an experiment, nice and boring, revolutionary and nasty, with too many ingredients and an ambitious chaotic cook. So, it is interesting to define the target. Imagine the public for this version, very Japanese and cold, technical and strange. Only game for a generation behind books, part of a trilogy, maybe, violent and absurd, a fairy story in irregular uniform, it is not a disappointment if recognize the wave of movies in which history, legends and literature are a form of cake with taste of fast - food. Mirror of our society, piece of wet sand, it is a kind of Divine Comedy ersaz.
