"Andreef's debut into feature film works a treat."
Andreef’s short films have always shown great skills for a feature film. When it came time to create a feature, I was worried that she might fall victim to the quirky Aussie trade mark of filmmaking and use a dysfunctional family gathered for one last flight as the joke. But she pulled it off.SOFT FRUIT tells the tale of a blue collar family in the industrial area of Port Kembla who gather for their dying mother. Normally families come together after the death of a parent. But in this instant the mother is still alive and part of the fun as each child comes home with a suitcase full of problems and past confrontations. And what a joy it is to sit back and watch.There are a few questionable moments but the film pulls together in a tight 102 minute package with the help of Andreef’s creative talent and respect for the characters.
