Semi-Soet The Movie

We are thrilled to star in our first movie – the Afrikaans Romantic Comedy called Semi-Soet!

Watch the teaser below!

On this page we will update all the latest news up to the release of the movie in February 2012 so that you can be informed and get excited with us! There is a Johannesburg Premiere in early February and Vrede en Lust will also host our own Cape Town Premiere! Whether you are English or Afrikaans, it does not matter; this is going to be a very classy, flirty, funny Rom Com that anyone will enjoy! The Producers and Directors are doing a great job of making Vrede en Lust look even more spectacular than it is in real life! With almost two thirds of the film shot on Vrede en Lust, we were priviledged to have been in the company of great South African actors and filmmakers and we sure did have a lot of fun!

Synopsis of Semi-Soet:

Workaholic Jaci will go to any lengths to protect the boutique advertising agency she works for from being bought and dismantled by a ruthless businessman known as ‘The Jackal’. Hope exists in the form a huge contract for a prestigious wine farming family.  But winning this contract won’t be simple. Jaci needs to convince the farm owner that she lives up to his company’s ideals of family values and commitment by proving that she is in a loving, long term relationship.

Desperate to appear to be living the balanced life she has discarded, Jaci decides to hire a model to pretend to be her fake fiancé for the day.

At the pitch meeting the facade seems to have worked until the client insists her and her fake fiancé come away for the weekend to experience the wine farm before she pitches for the contract. Things start to get very complicated, very quickly for poor Jaci, especially since the man she has hired to be her stand-in-fiancé, is the very ‘Jackal’ himself who is trying to sink her company.
