It’s 1348. The plague has brutally hit Florence. A group of then young people, seven women and three men, rebel against the feeling of death that is about to swallow them. They flee the city and find refuge in an abandoned villa in the Tuscan hills. Here, between moral doubts and the tasks needed to survive, they kill time by telling each other stories until they will decide to return. The stories are varied – tragic, bizarre, funny or erotic – but common and central to all of them is the female presence.
Spanning four decades, from the chaotic 1960s to the present, director Marco Tullio Giordana’s passionate epic ‘La Meglio Gioventu’ follows two Italian brothers through some of the most tumultuous events of recent Italian history.
Based on a book by Mauro Covacich, Honey tells the story of Irene (Jasmine Trinca), a thirty year old, who has decided to help people who suffer: the terminally ill who want to shorten the agony, people whose sufferings affect the dignity of the human being. One day a seventy year old in good health requests her services as he deems to have lived long enough. The meeting will challenge Irene’s beliefs. (Courtesy of GQ)
