Storyline

Contempory Moscow, Russia. Young Galya (Yuliya Vysotskaya) comes to Moscow from the coal-mining town of Shakhty in the Rostov Oblast near the Black Sea, a journey of over 500 miles. She is pretty and bright, if a bit naive and disorganized. Her dream is to become an elite high-fashion model -- a supermodel -- and to see her image on the glossy cover of the fashion magazine Beauty. When she meets the editor-in-chief of Beauty Magazine, however, he tells Galya that she lacks the necessary natural beauty and sense of style to be a model, and she will never appear on their cover. She then goes to work as a seamstress for a famous fashion designer. During one of their shows, quite by accident, she ends up walking the runway as a model. They fire her on the spot. Then, seemingly by chance, she becomes the assistant of the owner of an elite, highly exclusive, personal matchmaking agency, which -- for a considerable price -- arranges marriages for rich men with the most beautiful models in ...

Pretty scary realistic film
14 March 2009 | by (Russian Federation) – See all my reviews

Well,I saw this film because Edward Artemiev made score for it. It is the story of underworld live of Moscow-based glamour model studio, that turns out to be a prostitution market. A girl from Rostov on Don comes to Moscow to become a model, but she does not fit the standards of that business. She is old enough and one of her legs is shorter. But she still has that idea that she must be that kind of star. But her ex-boyfriend a bandit from Rostov, who still loves her, made everything to help her. She becomes a body on a modern magazine cover, but..

Quite cynic and bloody ending. Anyway ,this look is close to reality. pretty critical Andrey Konchalovski's effort. You can see a lot of famous people acting very untypically . The real hymn of crazy money-makers.
