The movie is based on a series of short novels, written by Włodzimierz Odojewski: Venice is the story of an 11-years-old Marek, whose dreams of a summer trip to Venice are brutally cut short by the outbreak of war in 1939. To escape the cruel realities of the world the boy hides in the basement of his aunt‘s villa. When one night the basement is flooded during a storm, the woman decides to distract the Marek‘s imagination by building a replica of Venice underneath her house. Kolski combines the brutal images of war with the dreamlike qualities of a child‘s sensitivity and need for magic.
