WARSAW: Films Boutique will manage worldwide sales for Jacek Borcuch’s Italy-based drama Dolce Fina Giornata starring Krystyna Janda. The film will premiere internationally at the Sundance IFF in the World Cinema Dramatic Competition.
Dolce Fina Giornata (working title: Volterra) follows the character of a fictional Nobel Prize winning Polish poet played by Krystyna Janda, who leads a quiet life in a small town in Tuscany. During the ceremony for the Honourary Citizenship Award that she is being given, instead of courteously expressing her gratitude, she makes a politically incorrect speech.
"It's a story about modern Europe, taking place in the Tuscan province city Volterra. I wanted to tell a story about the fear of 'the other' experienced in Europe", says Jacek Borcuch.
The cast includes Katarzyna Smutniak, Antonio Catania, Lorenzo de Moor, Vincent Riotta and Robin Renucci.
The shoot took place in Tuscany in April 2018. Polish company No Sugar Films is producing in coproduction with Tank Production, Motion Group and Aeroplan.
Dolce Fina Giornata is the third film directed by Jacek Borcuch that will be screened in Sundance, following his previous dramas Lasting (2013, Manana) and All That I Love (2009, Prasa&Film).
The film will open in Polish cinemas in 2019 distributed by NEXT FILM.
