Rather dull. I think we all realize this industry is horrible and takes advantage of young girls, and I was hoping for more from this doc. I think with docs, sometimes you get a good person to follow and other times they just don't turn out to be be that interesting.

The modeling industry disgusts me, and this documentary is a good illustration of why. Having said that, this is actually pretty interesting, albeit not easy to watch.

Never would my child be allowed to model after this. Not that I have child nor am I having one so do not start the rumors lol. Pretty dark documentary.

Don't understand that woman (Ashley). Those girls are being exploited and she acts as if she's got nothing to do with it.

Fairly disturbing documentary about young (way young) models scouted from their homes in Siberia and sent to Japan to model. -apparently the Japanese market likes young girls. Our main subject here is13. The girls are basically owned by their agency, waiting around in tiny,crappy apartments to go on shoots completely shut off due to the language barrier and a lack of cash. Ultimatly they will be sent home if they gain any weight or inches as outlined in their contract (um puberty!) Its very sad because the girls and their families think that they've won the lottery but in reality I saw it as just another form of trafficking. The scout who finds these girls is a former model and apparently hates the business but that doesn't stop her from exploiting them and living in a fancy house in America.03.13

Girl Model es un documental que explora el lado oscuro del modelaje, a través de los ojos las modelos, pero también de los scouts que son responsables de toda esta explotación. Nadya es una niña de Siberia, donde el negocio del modelaje es visto como la salida de la pobreza, y estas jóvenes se ven presionadas a audicionar en competencias, y ganar el anhelado contrato, y son enviadas a países como Japón, donde les prometen grandes sumas de dinero. Ashley, una de las muchos scouts en esa parte del mundo, las examina, y finalmente decide si son adecuadas para el trabajo. Este ticket para salir de Siberia es visto como ganarse la lotería, pero al ser las jóvenes tan ingenuas, al igual que sus familias, no se imaginan en lo que se están metiendo. Este documental realmente es perturbador, porque creemos que el modelaje es un mundo glamoroso, pero sobretodo para estas menores de edad, no es mas que un negocio donde la explotación es la norma. Se aprovechan de las necesidades monetarias, pero ni siquiera en eso se ven beneficiadas, porque algunas de estas modelos regresan a estas pequeñas ciudades con grandes deudas, y empeoran su situación. La scout Ashley, que por cierto solía ser modelo, es una persona claramente inestable, que usa su posición para hacer ganancias a costa de esta situación desafortunada. Este es un documental deprimente, pero que es necesario verlo para realmente entender que pasa detrás de escena en el mundo del modelaje.

The world of modeling is not always as glamorous as you think.

Overall really intriguing and a good documentary by the producers about what is essentially child labour trafficking. I thought Ashley Arbaugh was really boring. What was the relevance of her cyst removal? She is pretty much hyprocritical and couldn't care less about the girls. I was so disappointed that those girls were not picked up at the airport given that they were so young? Have the film makers and more importantly, these so called reputable "Caring" (bullshit) agencies have even a heart because I certainly saw no compassion. They treated these beautiful (inside and outside) girls with so much disrespect and coldness. To Ashley, you said in the film you want children, if you had a daughter and things were different and you weren't so fortunate, just imagine your own daughter in their situation? How would you feel?

This is so boring and pointless. The story has absolutely no reason for existing and the people this is about are not worth watching at all.
July 8, 2013
I can see how this was supposed to be a scathing documentation of the deplorable practices of some so-called modeling agencies, but it seemed to lack focus, including a lot of extra elements to pad the run time. The "conclusion" drawn from watching was too subtle and yet too obvious at the same time.

Its almost like the women who don't make the first cut are the lucky ones.

The fashion industry is the most amoral business in the world. Fascinating documentary.
June 16, 2013
Good, but could have been much better.
May 26, 2013
A revealing documentary showing the behind the scenes of a sad and stupid industry.

Girl Model is a disturbing trend going in Japan. Something that truly doesn't resonate at all and the obsession of a specific face but also the age is just ridiculous. You can tell this girls are not even emotionally prepare but also the empty promises they make for them. Its a wake up call for them but also the families and how this model agencies are a scam.

Now the female who is a model scout has narcissist characteristics. It went from following the girls on how she has psychological issues. Something must had happened to her in her modeling career, to be obsess with babies, living in a glass clear house, and being obsessed with the girls feet&body. She talks about how the modeling world is such a dark place, but than she plays the role of feeding that darkness. You can tell it has consumed her mentally&emotionally.

Great documentary on the exploitation of innocence and adolescence. Opportunistic parents selling their children into slave mills that are only concerned with the superficiality of life or caring parents truly wanting to help their children? Professional model agencies or predators? Are you a professional or predator when you acquire an adolescent of legal age but she must look much younger than her actual legal age to gain employment? If neither then what are you? You watch and be the judge. The calculated, cold and cavalier attitude of these real individuals made me wish this was fiction, but it is far from it. Gripping, disturbing and contemplative.

Brilliant and terrifying. Great glimpse into a world I knew damn near nothing about.
March 14, 2013
Definitely interesting but disturbing.

Fascinating but disturbing. These very young (12, 13) and beautiful Russian type girls are sent to Asian countries for modeling b/c Japan etc has no rules re: age of girls. The girls and their families are lied to regarding work and compensation. These girls return home some months after all these pictures are taken and used for no pay to the girls who actually end up owing money to these "agents". It's disgusting when I think and write about it. It's acknowledged that there are pornographic and improper uses of these girls' pictures. Everyone makes money but the girls. There really needs to be strict regulation and intervention by the various gov'ts to protect these girls from obvious exploitation.
