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.

Quotes

Dante: Why, God? Why are you doing this?
Virgil: It is not the Lord that brought you to this fate, Dante.
Dante: What are you, shade or living man?
Virgil: Not man, though once I was. I lived under Augustus in the time of the false and lying gods.
Dante: Are you not Virgil, glory of the poets, he who wrote the Aeneid, the treasure of Rome?
Virgil: Why do you seek such woe, Dante?
Dante: I seek only my beloved Beatrice and nothing more, but I cannot open these accursed gates!
Virgil: Have you lost all faith in God, O man? Has the way been so obscured?

the book still casts a great shadow
2 March 2010 | by EchoMaRinESee all my reviews

This is the animated, softened in language and shortened in content version of Dante's Inferno but nevertheless a great movie to see. You may find the story familiar from the book but it is a great experience to see it as an animation. It is indeed showing the journey of Dante in nine circles of the hell to rescue his beloved Beatrice from Lucifer. You see all nine circles and their purpose but the sub-parts of the circles are not detailed since the movie focuses on the epic fight of Dante. Most of the characters and the story is there but it could have been better to make the movie in Italian. One needs to give credits to the soundtracks, they were quite good. As a conclusion, the book still casts a great shadow on anything that can be done along this lines but this is a nice movie as such.
