Movie Info

A security guard working in a Mexico City gym withdraws into isolation as his body is slowly consumed by a mysterious sickness in this haunting drama from first-time writer/director Sebastian Hofmann. Every day at work, Beto (Alberto Trujillo) is surrounded by vibrant, healthy bodies. Meanwhile, Beto's own body appears to have declared war on itself. His only solution is to wall himself away from the world in his small apartment, and attempt to stop the decay by injecting himself with embalming fluid. Though a friendly relationship with the pretty woman who owns the gym offers Beto a momentary reprieve from his suffering, every day the prospect of living a normal life again seems to slip further out of reach.

Critic Reviews for Halley

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (2)

"Halley" isn't particularly satisfying as a narrative or character study, and the profundity or blankness of its meaning is entirely up to the viewer.

Compounding [its] bodily gross-outs, Hoffmann has drenched the film with accompanying tonal annoyances: insect buzzing, metal scrapings and human grunting.

Hofman treats Beto and his strange and disturbing condition with gentle respect. What he is going through is horrific, but the film never exploits his increasingly unpleasant physical condition.
