good short film packs a punch, 31 December 2008
Author: Timothy Shiloh from United Kingdom

Soft is a great short film. It has all you want in a short film. fast pace, excellent story. Good round over all.

I think this film has done really well because it appeals to most people from all social classes. The father was a great actor, and his portrayal of the dad was fantastic.

His eyes said everything and the voice was just an asset which he used brilliantly as well. I would love to see him in more roles in the future as well. By far Soft is a good film and deserves the BIFA award it picked up

well done bravo Simon. like to see your future films. Some times a few films are made and they leave and impact.

Soft does this.. 7 - 10 this is worth viewing.
