Episode 54: Miele

Miele

A woman who helps terminally ill people end their suffering faces a moral dilemma when a physically healthy man seeks assistance in ending his life.

IMDb

In Episode -2: How to Die in Oregon, Gordon and Geoff watched a documentary about legalized assisted suicide in the state of Oregon. 56 episodes later, we have returned to the subject in the form of a foreign film from Italy. Miele, also known as Honey, also known as Irene, is a drug dealer of death. Her clients are terminally ill patients who are unfortunately unable to legally commit suicide so they use our protagonist's elaborate drug trafficking of canine barbiturates. Irene cares deeply about her work and it shows when she is duped into selling the drugs to a perfectly healthy individual. The plot focuses on this conflict but also takes a lot of dead-end ventures that try to make Irene's character more complex. Despite all the red herrings and a plot that goes nowhere, we actually walked away from this movie fairly content. It was well-paced, the acting was good, and the subject was interesting. Maybe it's the mountain of bad movies we trudge through that has made this bad movie appear mediocre so keep that in mind. We don't recommend it but we didn't hate it either is what I'm trying to say. After the news, Gordon brings in Shin Godzilla and then I lose our foreign movie bet as we end up rolling Chic! for next week, our fourth foreign film in a row!
