Reviews

Girl Model follows a complex supply chain between Siberia, Japan, and the U.S. within the modelling industry. The story is told through the eyes of a scout and a 13 year-old model.

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 centre of Tokyo with promises of a profitable career.

After Ashley s initial discovery of Nadya, the two rarely meet again, but their stories are inextricably bound. As Nadya s optimism about rescuing her family from their financial difficulties grows, her dreams contrast against Ashleys more jaded outlook about the industry s corrosive influence.

A terribly sad film about young teens being trapped into unfair modelling contracts.

The girls are shipped off to unaccompanied(at 13!) to japan as they 'like them young there', sent on castings, living in tiny shared rooms and when they dont get jobs return in debt to the agency and so get sent elsewhere. Slavery wrapped up as something more glamorous.

Thoroughly depressing.

Saw the second half of this documentary on television and found it fascinating so I had to buy the DVD. I really loved it and would recommend to anyone. Its actually sad to watch as the girls are so young and mostly poor are being exploited and sexualized.

A sad story of a disillusioned youngster misled by the modelling fraternity. The sad way in which these aspiring youngsters are treated is underlined by the story.
