Fauli's failed talents
9 June 2002 | by (La Copenhague) – See all my reviews

Søren Fauli appeared rightfully as the new hope for Danish cinematic comedy in the beginning of the '90s but he has yet to materialize as being capable of keeping focus in directing. "Antenneforeningen" is a fine example of that lack of concentration.

At first "Antenneforeningen" is a fun encounter with the inhabitants of an old house in Copenhagen all looking like and loving the TV-series "Huset På Christianshavn". This update of a Danish classic is hilarious and very well acted, notably by Farshad Kholgi, William Kisum, Gerda Gilboe and - as always - brilliant Birthe Neumann. But Fauli wants to rock this sleepy world which he does with a terrible accident at the end of the movie. This is a break of style and is repeated in his later works "Grev Axel" and the notorious "Polle Fiction".

Fauli could be a capable comedian director but tends to let the temptation of pretending to be a better film maker than he is get the better of him. It is a shame but so far Søren Fauli has been a cinematic disappointment as is "Antenneforeningen".
