Storyboard Text

  • Montressor meets Fortunado and asks about Amontillado.
  • They head to Montressor's house, and to the supposed Amontillado.
  • Montressor hurts Fortunado's pride as they enter the catacombs. He chains Fortunado in the room the Amontillado's supposed to be in.
  • Luchresi...
  • Fortunado's eyes and expression suggest drunkenness and surprise at the same time. Montressor looks out of place, dressed in black, like an ominous shadow.
  • Montressor seals Fortunado in the room and suffocates, smothers, and burns him.
  • Choices in character are similar. Montressor's house is dark and demeaning, much like his vengeful, murderous personality.
  • Montressor places the last brick and seals up the dead Fortunato.
  • Fortunado is ahead; he's eager, but offended at being compared to Luchresi. The skull is in place of many bones, and the cobweb represents the nitre.
  • Montressor, pushing away his guilt, covers up the wall with bones and leaves Fortunado to rest in peace.
  • Fortunado is crying out and kneeling, begging. Montressor is smiling as he smothers his friend. The background shows how bleak both the setting and situation are.
  • Fortunado has his eyes closed and is sideways, showing his death. Montressor remains proud and pleased.
  • The skulls represent the "rampart of bones." Montressor is trying to be proud of his work -- he is wearing a smirk -- but he has a hand on his face as if he's unsure or concerned.
