Critic Reviews for The Model

  • The Model digs into the sexual-political economy of Paris fashion through the experience of Emma (Danish model Maria Palm in her acting debut), a naive teen alone in a foreign land, chasing her dreams of fame and fortune.

  • The bodies are thin in the Danish film "The Model" and so is the plot, though the real-life model who plays the lead role acquits herself well enough.

  • A shallow but good-looking soap opera-like drama set in the world of high fashion.

  • The Model is one of those films you can't seem to take your eyes off. It had me engaged throughout the ugly, sexy and suspenseful parts.

  • Takes its classic melodramatic premise and almost goes out of its way to cram it full of stale tropes while making sure that nothing original or unique is said.

  • Highly recommended to anti-fashionistas for its unblinking look at the stench beneath the couture.
