Fruits and Vegetables has been described as “A loving drama about parents and children, about accepting oneself, and about a new dress that can change a lot of things” and director Maciej Jankowski agrees with this description. Fruits and vegetables is Jankowski’s diploma film.
Fruits and Vegetables: It’s difficult to say what Wojtek struggles with more in life: his obesity and the old car stuffed with fruits and vegetables that his mother uses to drive him to school every day, or the classmates who make fun of him because of it. And Wojtek’s mother, who operates a small grocery store, doesn’t seem to notice his troubles. Maybe it’s because she has enough to worry about trying to feed them both. Or perhaps she has no idea how to help her son. One day, all these problems escalate – but there’s a surprising solution… A loving drama about an unusual mother-son relationship, about the importance of accepting oneself, and about a new dress that can change a lot of things.
