“You have a really shitty job,” a woman tells Irene (Jasmine Trinca) as she sees her out of her apartment. Irene, who works under the alias “Honey” to try and sweeten the reality, at least on the surface, can't say much in response because she knows it's true. However you personally dice the sensitive issue of euthanasia, you can't deny that assisting someone who has given up on life is a shitty job. Terminal illness is one of the scariest things in this world, and people like Irene understand that more than anyone because they have the kind of courage needed to actually do something about it. Whether she's a heathen or a healer, director Valeria Golino smartly avoids the precarious question altogether. Instead she creates a subdued character study of a young woman's awakening to the brighter side of life.
