Girl Model2011

  • 3.8
Despite a lack of obvious similarities between Siberia and Tokyo, a thriving model industry connects these distant regions. GIRL MODEL follows two protagonists involved in this industry: Ashley, a deeply ambivalent model scout who scours the Siberian countryside looking for fresh faces to send to the Japanese market, and one of her discoveries, Nadya, a thirteen year-old plucked from the Siberian countryside and dropped into the center of Tokyo with promises of a profitable career. GIRL MODEL is a lyrical exploration of a world defined by glass surfaces and camera lenses, reflecting back differing versions of reality to the young women caught in their scope.

This film was an eye-opener for me. My view of modeling was far less glamorous than what it portrayed in this documentary. The camera work and editing are well done.

Informative, interesting, and sad what the industry does to and how everyone exploits these young innocent young women and their families.
