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 ...

Brilliant!!!
20 December 2007 | by slash_82See all my reviews

I haven't expected to see such a wonderful movie before I've pushed play. This is one of the last years Russian's best. I belief everybody must see it. The director made his job excellent. The actors are ideal. The story is filled of absolutely right cinematographic moves. And finally perfectly-made mystery. I've heard so many bad reviews on this movie that I really was prepared to something weak. But probably this one is really that special that seems amazing for the ones and 'nothing really special' for others. And what can I say? Tose others are definitely did not understand this movie. They didn't understand anything, especially ideal directing. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to "Glyanets"!!!
