Very low on our list, it doesn’t sound like the adaptation is enjoyable.
The notes on IMDB suggest that this is an adaptation of the Inferno, though Beatrice gives Dante the opportunity to journey through the Underworld to redeem his own life. The film moves through all three portions of the Divine Comedy.
There is seriously nothing about this movie beyond a murky trailer. Apparently it’s available for streaming on Amazon, but without subtitles, and “dantethefilm.com” is down. This review on Video Librarian suggests that the film has illegible subtitles, awkward CGI backdrops, and a generally plodding pace that doesn’t do any favors.
