      J. R. Jones Chicago Reader [Honey is] never really laid bare as a character; her helpless, beseeching customers leave a much deeper impression. May 8, 2014 Full Review David Thomson The New Republic Seek it out. May 8, 2014 Full Review Michael O'Sullivan Washington Post Trinca delivers a marvelously unfussy performance, rendering her complex character gradually, along with the effects of the opposing forces that tear at her. Rated: 3/4 Mar 27, 2014 Full Review Nicholas Bell IONCINEMA.com Golino's film is an adept and engrossing debut, enhanced by a hypnotizing soundtrack and striking visuals. Rated: 3/5 Aug 29, 2019 Full Review Nikola Grozdanovic The Playlist ...director Valeria Golino...creates a subdued character study of a young woman's awakening to the brighter side of life. Rated: B+ Mar 21, 2014 Full Review Louis Proyect rec.arts.movies.reviews 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.

      Andre G If you like dancing movies then you'll love this movie. Jessica Alba teaches kids and teens how to dance in groups, to help keep the kids off the streets. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 05/27/23 Full Review vander a It's good but I think the Tomato rating of 100% is a bit over the top. Thought provoking and well acted. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Jasmine Trinca who plays protaganist Honey is a compelling, androgynous figure as her story unfolds.She has a darkness about her that can hold the audience. The viewer goes on her journey as she deals with the conflicts of her job and her own personal demons. Whilst the story does deal with death it is mainly about life. This film was undeniably enthralling. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review walter m 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. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review mike v A slow-paced, sometimes unsettling film, which raises important questions about euthanasia. D Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member A slow-paced, sometimes unsettling film, which raises important questions about euthanasia.
