Cesare Zavattini

With regard to my own work, the characters and situations in films for which I have written the scenario, they remain unresolved from a practical point of view simply because “this is reality.” But every moment of the film is, in itself, a continuous answer to some question. It is not the concern of an artist to propound solutions. It is enough, and quite a lot, I should say, to make an audience feel the need, the urgency, for them…In films which do not touch me directly, also, when I am called in to do a certain amount of work on them, I try to insert as much as possible of my own world, of the moral emergencies within myself.
