Boy meets girl, boy is stood up, girl dies and retains a deep sense of animosity towards her afterlife suitor, boy tries to make it up to her as best he can. In his previous feature, Loop (2016), Isti Madarász trapped his main character in a time loop, where this anti-hero seed saw the opportunity to save his companion from a brutal end. This time, the theme of a second chance is used to irrigate a fantastic comedy that is luminous despite the omnipresence of death, and joyful beyond the background of social misery that appears in dotted lines. Halfway Home simply borrows its decorum from Bondie tales, invents cinematically enjoyable rules and obstacles, and composes an afterlife as offbeat as its approach to the romcom.
