Polish Film Festival Part II: Dolce Fine Giornata

Dolce Fine Giornata, Słodki Koniec Dnia, 2019,  (Italian, Polish, French dialogue) 92 min.

Directed by: Jacek Borcuch

Written by: Jacek Borcuch, Szczepan Twardoch

Principal cast: Krystyna Janda, Kasia Smutniak, Vincent Riotta, Antonio Catania, Lorenzo de Moor, Robin Renucci

Fears related to immigration, terrorism, and nationalism are a running theme in Jacek Borcuch’s “Dolce Fine Giornata.” Polish cinema star Krystyna Janda gives a gives a fearless, robust performance as Maria Linde, a Polish poetess, Nobel Prize winner, and moral authority. Her enviable semi-retired life in her family’s villa in Toscany rapidly frays when her “artistic license” in a public speech appears to condone suicide bombers. The film thoughtfully considers the role of art, politics, and family in all our lives through this extraordinary woman’s tale, while also reflecting on Europe’s history and its present.

The film won World Cinematic Dramatic Special Jury Award: Acting for Krystyna Janda at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival.
