Movie Info

Director Sean Meredith's animated entry into the 2007 Newport Beach Film Festival details one man's curious voyage into the deepest depths of the underworld. Upon awakening in an unfamiliar part of the city after an especially rough night, Dante asks the first person he spots for a little help in gathering his bearings. When the man responds that he penned an ancient poem called The Aeneid, the perplexed Dante recalls that particular piece of prose being penned two thousand years ago. But with no one left to turn to, Dante has little choice but to follow his enigmatic guide. When the man reveals that it is his duty to lead Dante on an extensive journey through a dreadful world of "horror and torment," the weary traveler becomes convinced that his only hope for survival is to follow his host into the scorching heart of Satan's vast inferno.

Truly amazing animated epic.. A must see! from reading the book too seeing a great depiction on the screen a master piece! of the highest quality! great film 5?

Dante's Inferno transplanted from Renaissance Tuscany to a contemporary American city. Told, not with live actors but with paper cutouts. The concept sounds just plain weird but the result was quite entertaining. Dante's allegorical epic poem, The Divine Comedy, is a classic, this movie is a bit less than a classic film but if you liked the classic you will be likely to find this version of it interesting.

I'm not really a fan of its political bias (which is basically "Kill all the Republicans!"), and some of it is too crude for me. But the puppet art style is amazing, the characters are funny, and it has really creative ways of updating Dante's punishments into a modern, city-like hell. I'd love to see them do Purgatory.
