Polish Jewish Nobel Prize winner Maria Linde is surrounded by beauty – of the Tuscany village where she lives with her family; of her much younger Egyptian lover; and of her poetry, much admired by her local community. A comment she makes about xenophobia in a speech given after a terror attack in Rome, however, threatens her privileged, free-spirited existence and exposes her to the very dark forces she has warned about. Dolce Fine Giornata is an elegant and incisive take on Europe’s refugee crisis and what has remained of its post-war liberal values.
