[Honey is] never really laid bare as a character; her helpless, beseeching customers leave a much deeper impression.
Seek it out.
Trinca delivers a marvelously unfussy performance, rendering her complex character gradually, along with the effects of the opposing forces that tear at her.
The title character of "Honey" is a fascinating and complex figure, and Jasmine Trinca inhabits the role with a detached intensity that's thoroughly compelling.
The film shies from directly addressing anguished existential questions. It is finally a story about the puncturing of one young, headstrong woman's personal belief system.
Golino shows impressive confidence behind the camera, tackling a complex story with patience and empathy.
...director Valeria Golino...creates a subdued character study of a young woman's awakening to the brighter side of life.
[Miele's ] small achievement is in trying to understand the life-and-death choices of two people who aren't as certain about what they're doing as they initially appear.
A visually stunning, superbly acted film with an intelligent and timely screenplay about the right of the human being to make the ultimate decision: ending one's life.
A thought-provoking moral thriller about a euthanasia activist in Italy.
Driven by a no-nonsense ethos, the film avoids sentimentality the same way its main character avoids sentiment.
An intense study of a woman whose faith in her job assisting suicide erodes.
In "Miele," Irene(Jasmine Trinca) lives by the seaside. She tells her loved ones that she is going to Padua. Actually, she is going much further afield to Mexico via Los Angeles. She does this in order to purchase animal barbituates to utilize in her job in assisting the suicides of those terminally ill under the name Honey.
Enter Carlo Grimaldi(Carlo Cecchi).
First, "Miele" takes an interesting angle at exploring the important subject of assisted suicide which probably does not get publicly discussed that much in a seriously Catholic country like Italy. To its credit, the movie also works as a thoughtful character study of someone who is so good at her job probably because she is so numb inside. At the same time, the editing does a neat job of replicating the sensation of continual jet lag in someone constantly on the move while Irene's personal history is deliberately dispensed.(And the music is a nice touch.) Without forcing it, the moral is for Irene to stop for a second in order to make a human connection.
