Movie Info

A woman who dreams of fame and success will let nothing stand in the way of her goals in this pointed drama from Russian director Andrei Konchalovksy. For most of her life, Galya (Yuliya Vysotskaya) has wanted to make something of herself in the fashion industry, but in the town of Rostov, she hasn't gotten any further than running a sewing machine in a clothing plant. When Galya is persuaded to pose for a revealing photo used in a local newspaper ad, she decides it's her destiny to become a model and convinces her boyfriend Vitya (Ilya Isaev) to loan her enough money to move to Moscow. Galya tries to persuade the editor of a leading fashion magazine (Irina Rozanova) to give her a chance, but it soon becomes clear the editor is immune to Galya's flattery. Galya takes a job as a seamstress and ends up sewing new creations for Mark Schiffer (Yefim Shifrin), a well-known designer. Galya takes every available opportunity to put herself before Schiffer, and her persistence leads to another opportunity to show her talent as a model. Meanwhile, Vitya has found work as a bodyguard, and as he protects the safety of both politicians and organized crime kingpins, he develops his own relationships with the wealthy and powerful. Glyanets (aka Gloss) was the opening night attraction at the 2007 Sochi Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
