Watch He Died with a Felafel in His Hand (2001) - Alternative Versions.
Putting John Burningham's best-selling but episodic reminiscences of
house-sharing into a watchable feature film was quite a challenge, but a
veteran house-sharer, Richard Lowenstein (`Dogs in Space'), succeeds here
having several of the more interesting and bizarre characters follow the
narrator (Noah Taylor) from city to city. The felafel, in fact, a throwaway
line in the book, is given centre stage, and the result is a well-focused
tale of the horrors of house-sharing it's the `Secret Life of Us' meets
Noah Taylor is one of those actors who cannot fail if given a goofy role,
and here he is perfect as Danny, the aspiring writer roughing it with a
collection of druggies, minor criminals, aspiring sorceresses and actors,
while trying to evade his creditors and write a prize-winning story for
`Penthouse'. Allegedly irresistible to women, he fails badly with his
housemates. As one of them says, incredulously: `Have an affair with you?
I'm not a masochist!'
Romane Bohringer gives another strong performance as Anya, a sort of social
bomb-thrower with a taste for Druid ritual, who puts any place she joins
into an uproar in no time. Then there is Taylor the mad drunk (Alex
Menglet), Flip the junkie (a touching performance from Brett Stewart), Nina
the terminally vain soap actor (Sophie Lee hopefully not as herself) Iain
the doctrinaire socialist (Ian Hughes in Melbourne of course) and Dirk the
emerging homosexual (Francis McMahon), amongst others. Some of the
landlord's agents do not lack colour either eg Linal Haft's rent collector
as gangster in Brisbane.
All these characters are somehow accommodated in the story, though an early
peak (the great bikie party in the Brisbane house) is followed by rather a
flat period in Melbourne. Once the circus reaches Sydney, however, things
pick up again perhaps it's the more effervescent air.
The tropical squalor of the first house, a battered `Queenslander,'
me a little of `Praise', a vastly different film in tone, but Danny is not
necessarily one of life's defeated, though it seems like that sometimes.
This movie has a decidedly upbeat tone; the last place might have been
pretty rugged, bet there's always the hope of something more salubrious, or
at least of more congenial flatmates. No doubt admirers of the book will
take offence at what has been left out, but Lowenstein should be given
credit for giving it a cinematic context.
