I've seen worse, but I've seen plenty better

'The Model' opens with shots of city streets - but what city? It's not New York - no gleaming skyscrapers - and those narrow, hilly streets belong to neither London nor Copenhagen (this is a Danish film). Actually, it is Paris - director Mads Matthiesen fooling the viewer by ignoring the film convention that every establishing shot of the French capital must feature the Eiffel Tower. The story follows Emma, a painfully slim young Dane, who arrives in the city ready to begin her career as a fashion model. Her supporting cast are quickly established - Zofia, a prickly fellow model who becomes her friend; and a fatherly landlord. Her first shoot, with temperamental British photographer Shane, does not go well, but one dance at a nightclub later and Emma is not only Shane's favourite model but is also tumbling into bed with him. Soon she is swept up in an exciting lifestyle of glamorous fashion shoots, girly confidences with Zofia and parties where dishes of cocaine are presented as interesting table decorations.

To be frank, the film is not a success. The storyline is very soapy, but the pacing is slow in far too many places. This is partly because central character Emma, as played by Maria Palm (a real-life model), is rather glum and lifeless, wafting about the screen like a floaty curtain (but Palm deserves credit for acting not just in her native Danish, but also in English and French). The viewer's feeling that he's watching a soap opera is reinforced by Ed Skrein as Shane, whose husky voice and showy mannerisms are straight out of 'Hollyoaks'. The story does not share with the viewer the legal ramifications for Emma of the climactic scene (you'll know when you've reached it) and there's a very noticeable continuity error when, during a conversation between Emma and Shane, the camera focuses on the back of the latter's neck - in one shot the label of his T-shirt is sticking up, in the next it's no longer visible - a minor thing, admittedly, but one I found distracting. All of which means I'm marking this film 'must try harder'.

I haven't seen a movie so well made for a long time. It was really well logically though over.

I have to say that it is a strong 8/10. The movie is showing how easily modeling/fashion industry can manipulate young and inexperienced. What I liked the most (!!!minor spoiler!!!) was the opening scene showcasing the streets of Paris. These scenes were shown also at the end of the movie and made great framing of the whole movie. What is more important is that after experiencing the movie we are not going to look at, the ending photos of these street in Paris, the same. They are no longer going to be so innocently to the eyes of the audience. Anyway, I would strongly recommend this movie to everyone who enjoys watching drama focused around the life of newly "discovered" model in the fashion industry. I also think that "The Model" is also right movie, for anyone who likes to watch something slightly more demanding than another blockbuster movie.
