This is a really well organized and concise documentary on Dante's Inferno. The only documentary I know about on Dante's Inferno. I was amazed at how incredible Dore Illustrations look on the screen and how well they were used to follow the narrator and speakers throughout the film. Jeff Conaway did a great narration and sounds like it was the right choice for the off camera voice. If you are a Dante lover or need help in understanding the poem, don't think twice and buy this DVD. If you never read The Divine Comedy, this film will open your eyes as to why Dante Alighieri is considered the best Italian poet of all time.

Boris Acosta's film is a concise and frightening look at Dante's vision of hell, as interpreted by famous actors and academics from both Italy and the US. Wonderfully illustrated and filmed, a must-see for those new to Dante and scholars alike.

Sound is completely horrible. Avoid this one. It is a very amateur production with limited scholarly value. Find another Dante doc . Preferably one not made by Hollywood junkie evangelicals.

I very much enjoyed this film. It takes the viewer on a gruesome but compelling journey through Dante's levels of hell. Through graphic imagery, frightening vintage film, engaging music, and clear explanations and interpretations the film leads you easily through the epic of Dante.

This is a good length for this film - not too long, not too short.

not even worth a 1 star rating, so boring. I saw an hour animated version of Dante's Inferno that was leaps and bounds more entertaining

This is a really well organized and concise documentary on Dante's Inferno. The only documentary I know about on Dante's Inferno. I was amazed at how incredible Dore Illustrations look on the screen and how well they were used to follow the narrator and speakers throughout the film. Hollywood legend, Jeff Conaway did a great narration and sounds like it was the right choice for the off camera voice. This later version even has clips of the first Italian feature film "L'Inferno" (1911), which look restored and fascinating. If you are a Dante lover or need help in understanding the poem, don't think twice and buy this DVD. If you never read The Divine Comedy, this film will open your eyes as to why Dante Alighieri is considered the best Italian poet of all time. Gotta see it!!!

Here is another great film (animation) by the same director based on Dante's Inferno: Dante's Hell Animated
