Critic Reviews for Miele
[Honey is] never really laid bare as a character; her helpless, beseeching customers leave a much deeper impression.
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.
Audience Reviews for Miele
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.
