Dolce Fine Giornata is a contemporary drama of multifarious intent, starring Polish cinema veteran Krystyna Janda as a celebrated ex-pat poet Maria, living an idyllic life on in the Tuscan foothills. When in the wake of a suicide bombing in Rome, Maria makes a speech that appears to sympathise with the terrorists, the veneer of normalcy in her life begins to unravel. This narrative provides an unlikely conduit for a deeply complex analysis on immigration, populism and nationalism, whilst also presenting a remarkably layered (and rare) portrait of a woman in later life.
