Movie Info

In HONEY, Irene lives alone on the coastline outside Rome. To her father and her married lover, she's a student. In reality, she often travels to Mexico where she can legally buy a powerful barbiturate. Working under the name of Miele ("Honey"), her clandestine job is to help terminally-ill people to die with dignity by giving them the drug. One day she supplies a new "client" with a fatal dose, only to find out he's perfectly healthy but tired of life. Irene is determined not to be responsible for his suicide. From this point on, Irene is determined to get the drug back. She and Grimaldi become unwillingly locked in an intense and moving relationship which will change Irene's life forever.

Audience Reviews for Miele

  • Mar 09, 2014
    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.
