Honey a movie by Valeria Golino

Honey is my name and I will help you...

Valeria Golino, the actress also known in the U.S. for being Tom Cruise's love interest in Rain Man, is now a director. And she's doing it in a big way. The movie has already grabbed attention at Cannes and Venice.
The main character, Irene (Honey to her clients), has the clandestine job to help terminally-ill people to die with dignity by giving them a drug that she acquires by frequently traveling to Mexico.
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. Read more about the movie in an interview with the director.

For many years, Italian movies have been recognized around the world thanks to the flms made by Italian directors such as Rossellini, Visconti, Fellini, De Sica, Taviani, Bertolucci, Pasolini, to name a few.
Many Italian actors gained worldwide success, among them Sophia Loren, Marcello Mastroianni, Alberto Sordi, Vittorio Gassman, and recently Roberto Benigni and Monica Bellucci.
Italian movie genres range from drama to comedy and everything in between. Lately RAI has produced many made-for-tv movies but also internationally acclaimed Italian movies.
Today, many Italian movies with English subtitles are available in DVD and for download or streaming.
