Tuesday short film: Soft (2006)







A powerful and award-winning 14 min British short that stays with you. About a rough neighbourhood, violent gangs and a father-son relationship.



SPOILERS: I don’t think it’s pro-violence, as some reviewers have suggested. Vengeful anger is a human reaction. He has shown more feistiness than his dad, but this was also a na├»ve decision to attack, and will probably lead to more violence after the credits have rolled.
