"I have maintained a conscious determined endeavor to try to understand the world in which I live in a spirit of humility and respect for the facts and for history. We [have] all taken part in it... I [seek] only to picture the essence of things. I [have] absolutely no interest in telling a romanticized tale along the usual lives of film drama. The actual facts [are] each more dramatic than any screen cliche." - Roberto Rossellini
