Storyline

Dante's Hell Animated is a real and truthful epic animation film that embarks Dante Alighieri's journey through the first part of the afterlife, Hell. It is a compelling four-quadrant film presented circle by circle in a chronological descent to the center of Hell, and to the exit into Purgatory. Dante's Hell Animated comes in two versions, one recited in primitive Italian in Dante's own words, and another narrated in English better understanding in this non-original language. Dante is guided by his hero Virgil through each circle of Hell and their subdivisions until they reach the center of the Earth and escaped to the other hemisphere into Purgatory. It features over 50 original color illustrations from the upcoming Dante's Hell comic book and magazine series, put together in a series of animation clips that will delight young and mature audiences.

This animation is the real epic!!!
6 February 2010 | by lucy-315See all my reviews

This animation is really enjoyable as an adult or teenager who either have never read the book or has already. I've seen only the Italian version with English subtitles and the Italian narrators have so much passion that make you feel like they are telling you the story in front of you. What a joy!

The sweet voice of Silvia Colloca as Beatrice makes you believe she was really angelical. The almost impersonation of Dante by Riccardo Pratesi makes you feel that Dante himself is teaching you about Hell. The implacable fathering voice of Vittorio Matteucci certainly brings the needed authority in Virgil as Dante's guide, protector and teacher about life.
