I guarantee you won't find another trailer or film that takes to the idea of the zombie with such a sympathetic and existential gaze as you will with Sebastián Hofmann's Halley
. Our very own Ard Vijn had this to say when the film played IFFR in Januar
The movie's title comes from the famous comet which visits Earth once
every 76 years. Most people will see Halley's comet only one time in
their lives. But not Beto. For him, different rules apply, and if he
keeps himself together (literally), he may see the comet several times.
But in between visits, Halley's comet travels utterly alone, just like
Beto, and utterly slow, just like the film.
You need to be very patient to get accustomed to the glacial pace set in Halley.
While there is a difference between boring, sedate and meditative,
director Sebastián Hofmann definitely takes his chances here. The great
make-up work and claustrophobic setting mostly managed to keep me
Check out the new trailer embedded below. Does the glacial pace and approach to the subject matter look intriguing to you as it does to me?
