Guido creates fictitious worlds for those around him. He calls Dora "princess" and claims to be a prince himself. Though they both know the truth, they both are more than willing to entertain the fantasy and play the game. In this way, Guido's fictions are a form of escapism, a way for him to cope with reality and imbue it with beauty. I like the scene when Dora tells Guido that one only needs the right key to open her heart. Guido suddenly says that he will ask the Virgin Mary to send him the key from heaven. He calls out, "Maria! The key!" A key comes flying down, and Guido catches it. "Is this it?" he asks Dora, who can only stare at him in astonishment.
