With Aldo Fabrizi, Arabella Lemaître, and Franciscan monks. “It was important for me then to affirm everything that stood against slyness and cunning… I believe that simplicity is a very powerful weapon… The accent is entirely on Saint Francis’s whimsical, unruffled approach to the crudities and trivialities of everyday life” (Rossellini).
