Synopsis:
This tautly written drama follows Irene - nicknamed “Miele” (Italian for “Honey”) - as she treads legal and moral boundaries performing assisted suicides on elderly hospital patients. Progressively de-humanized and alienated, Irene finds what’s left of her morals challenged when she is approached by a depressed, fatalistic, yet physically healthy architect who has lost his will to live. A thought-provoking, humanistic character study featuring sharp, sensitive performances, Miele represents a mature and capable directorial debut from celebrated actress Valeria Golino (Respiro).
