In his semi-documentary about the dark sides of fashion world, Ulrich Seidl creates a new, controversial, docu-fiction hybrid. Ulrich Seidl claims he's merely presenting the truth. The film follows three second-rate MODELS in Vienna. Disco dancing by night, posing for catalogue photo shoots by day, the three try to live a life of glamour and shield themselves from the pressures of competition and sexist photographers by snorting coke and maintaining an attitude of studied superficialty.
