One of the most depressing movies out there...
First of all, do not attempt to watch this film if you are feeling down or sad, it might render you in a very depressing mood...
It's a movie about disappointment, broken dreams and social decay. Seen through the eyes of a model at the end of her career. A world which is based on hopes and dreams, where you could be top notch one day and unemployed the next. It is an unforgiving life that can change so quickly that you do not want to see or accept it. As the protagonist attempts, trying to fool herself while the world around her breaks to pieces.
It's a movie which should be mandatory to all the contestants to all of the Top Model TV shows. Friends are somewhat party toys, good for amusement when you surf on the wave. But after all, the loneliness and lack of hope, as cold as a Christmas Eve in Berlin when you are totally alone out there... This picture makes you shiver.
The movie itself is no Academy Award winner, the directing is not state of the art, the story not as deep as it could be. But the main actor really gets it up going, absolutely authentic and disturbingly touching. I still give it a 10 as it made me think and feel sorry for this fate.
Shall you ever get a chance to watch that one, give it a try... It's worth your time for sure!
