L’Inferno (1911, dir. Giuseppe de Liguoro)
The hurricane of Hell in perpetual motion                                            
Sweeping the ravaged spirits as it rends, Twists, and torments them. Driven as if to land, They reach the ruin: groaning, tears, laments,
And cursing of the power of Heaven. I learned They suffer here who sinned in carnal things— Their reason mastered by desire, suborned.
As winter starlings riding on their wings Form crowded flocks, so spirits dip and veer Foundering in the wind’s rough buffetings,
Upward or downward, driven here and there With never ease from pain nor hope of rest. As chanting cranes will form a line in air,
So I saw souls come uttering cries—wind-tossed, And lofted by the storm.
-Canto V, The Divine Comedy: Inferno
