a typical life of a model ... and not a good one
19 August 2001 | by (Vienna) – See all my reviews

sleep with everyone and everywhere at any time and perhaps you will see your photo on the cover of a f***ed up magazine. and if not you are one of them. lonely, insecure, anorexic and unhappy. it's a story about a young model who struggles her way through the big bad world of business. the film is kind of a docu/drama with some scenes in it that everyone knows and everyone has it in his own life. i really enjoyed watching the film and i recommend it to everyone

so go and watch it :)
