INFERNO

The symbology scholar Professor Langdon wakes up in a hospital room in Florence. You wounded in the head, it has extremely confused memories and does not know because it is located in the Tuscan capital. When a woman dressed as a policeman broke into the nursing home he can only escape with the help of the young Dr. Sienna Brooks. Behind it all there is a genetic genius who decided to save humanity from its otherwise inevitable dissolution of spreading a virus that would drastically reduce the number of people on Earth.
Exactly ten years ago with The Da Vinci Code it was the beginning of the partnership between Dan Brown and Ron Howard, continued in 2009 with the Angels and Demons. Considered the results to the Box Office you could not expect that the third company of Professor Robert Langdon whereabouts the way of the big screen confirming the solidity of the couple and the presence of Tom Hanks in the lead role. Those who have read the book (and have been so many when you consider that only twenty days after the release had already reached the nine million copies sold worldwide) wondered how they would have done Howard and screenwriter David Koepp to turn a two-hour movie a story that had two difficult transposition characteristics. Because the novel, making constant references to Hell by Dante Alighieri, has a strong base linked to literature, that is, the written word and also, constantly, gives readers all over the world in-depth explanations of places and works of art They are located in Florence, Venice and Istanbul threatening at times to look like a Lonely Planet guide.
It can be said that the company is successful even if, as often happens in the transition from page to screen, readers will find numerous and, at least in one case, substantial changes. But this time will be spared us anathemas and vade retro given that the issue is no longer the relationship with the Catholic faith and those who profess it, and spread it opens perspectives of undoubted relevance and meaningful. Why did Bertrand Zobrist scientist triggers its destructive path from a real fact: the exponential growth of the world population with the consequent devastating effects on the future of life on our planet. The solution I found is drastic and Langdon must work to prevent their implementation.
Here it triggers a dynamic that differentiates the film from the background. If the first detection merged with the action, the dynamic here is that of constant fleeing danger looming trying to prevent a catastrophic event. Tom Hanks has always been in his eyes and facial expressions a mixture of fear down the desire to neutralize it. So who better than he could escape running or seek temporary shelter in Florence, which with its splendor becomes co-star in all respects of the narrative? All this while disturbing hallucinations and memory flashes haunt him and a young woman accompanying him? If the story of a love that comes back from the past threatens to lessen the tension, however, it remains firmly repeated the basic issue that is not only fictional character. Because a year away from the exit of the book, not Zobrist invented by Brown but the founder of the French National Front Jean-Marie Le Pen stated that the Ebola virus could solve in three months the problem of immigration from Africa. So they welcome film like this which are intended to entertain and remind us that the line between fiction and reality is sometimes very thin and that, as stated in the opening sentence of the novel, “the hottest places of hell are reserved for those which they remain neutral in times of great moral crisis “. Statement double-edged but that can not fail to think.
