"Over and beyond its literary value and its philosophical and socio-historical significance, the form of this film is very important: with the fixedness of the images and the plain, hardly theatrical, acting I tried to preserve Simone Weil's stage directions. The writer conceived this play as a Greek tragedy, which explains my use of "classical" shots in a play where very little actually happens. For me, the challenge was filming Venezia salva with non-actors, people who speak other languages, who are uprooted and live on the margins of society, in order to achieve a startling dissonance of accents. The result is that viewers can relate to Simone Weil's two ideas: truth is to be sought in misfortune; truth lies in beauty. Plus the idea of power as violence."
