| Immortal story about a Jewish condemned to galley slavery , now as cartoon movie
This cartoon version of renowned story during the time of Christ which was filmed several times , concerning on a Jewish named Ben-Hur results to be an agreeable movie . It stars in a prologue and epilogue narrated by Charlton Heston in his final acting before his death . He explains about numerous Lee Wallace's Ben Hur adaptations , as stage version , silent classic (1926) by Fred Niblo with Ramon Novarro and , of course , the big budget version by William Wyler that won a record of 11 Oscars and was the most expensive picture of its time , being one of the greatest movies of all history .

The story is well known , a wealthy Jewish nobleman , Ben Hur , and his confrontation to the rough military Messala (role played in Wyler version by Stephen Boyd) , though they were childhood friends . When it happens a sad distress , Ben Hur incurs the hostility his previous friend and is condemned as a galley slave , and his family is sent to prison during several years into a completely locked room . When he's in a galleon as slave rower saves to Quinto Arrio (Jack Hawkins in the Oscarized adaptation) who subsequently appointed him as heir . He returns Palestina where his mother Miriam and sister Tizrah (roles performed in classic version by Martha Scott and Cathy O'Donnell , respectively) are imprisoned at Antonia fortress . This classic tale is added religious issues about Jesus life , as there are described the pilgrimage to Cafarnaum where Jesus takes disciples , his apostles ,the treason by Judas , crucifixion and resurrection . The movie relies on traditional animation , it is partially made by computer generator , as the ship battles and the breathtaking chariot races . The dialogue , animated images , photography , evocative musical score combine to cast a spellbinding animation movie , though it contains some gaps and the animation is imperfect . This motion animated picture was professionally directed by Bill Kowalchuk.
