105 min

I want to fly.

Are you serious?

Yes. I want to fly like the swallows.

I want to float in the sky.

Aren't you happy with your life?

There is a strange flicker in my heart.

I want to master the world,

but I don't know where to start.

I can't be anything in this village.

I feel like a prisoner.

I want to change my life,

to broaden my horizons.

To see how others live,

to know them better.

The French, Italians...

I hope you understand me.

Have a good shift, Olga.

Yeah, whatever.

- See you.

- See you.

You're waiting for the weekend, right?

We are going to dance in that new

disco tonight.

You should come as well.

This place is amazing.

I'm having a great time, you?

Yes, I told you it was good.

- Look

- What happened?

Looks like they're looking for action.

They think they'll catch us by surprise

I don't know what West would do without us.

Hey! You two! If you're looking for

action, you're wasting your time.

Seems like you're looking for

something worth photographing.

Let's dance a little?

No. We were just there.

Look at that ass. It looks like tangerines.

Just like your sister's.

Was that supposed to be a compliment?

Excuse me. My name is Paul Verotek.

I'm a reporter for an Italian magazine.

Our new talent section discovers hidden

beauties and trains them as models.

Hi. My name is Ljuba.

Glad to meet you, Ljuba.

We are making a series about

Eastern European girls.

Can you speak a little bit about yourself?

Like about your future plans.

In this dump, what future plans can you have?

I want to get away from here.

I wish you good luck.

- Can I take your photo while dancing?

- Sure, why not?

Yes, what is it?

- Pardon me. Ljuba come here.

- Take her in.

Welcome to Italy.

So, you're our upcoming top model.

I have no doubt, you'll be popular.

-Francesca will take care of you.


Yes, she takes care of things here.

She'll take care of you too.

She'll show you how things work.


Can you take Ljuba to Francesca?

I'm sure you'll love it here.

We're making a calendar.

Your photos will be taken as well.

We'll put the best ones in this calendar.

- I don't believe it.

- Believe it, sweetheart. I'm telling the truth.

How do you like Rome?

I can't tell. I'm looking

forward to walking around.

I don't even know where to stay tonight.

- We'll place you with Masha.

- Masha?

Who's Masha?

See you later, slut.

Don't mind him. You know what,

men only understand one thing.

You'll treat them badly, so that

they won't expect anything

It's easier to do it to the

rich men, as you may know.

You'll act a little loose.

Really so sexy.

You know what? Men in Rome have a

real interesting taste in underwear.

Don't let this weird you out.

I'll teach you how to impress them.

The man in the suit is an

arms dealer and he's very rich.

The other one loves models.

They say he is very generous.

Loosen up and chill out, Ljuba.

I'm not sure about this.

Look at their faces. It's

obvious what they want.

It's true. You'll decide how far you'll go.

This is...

...he's a very charming man.

And this is my friend, Karl.

He's mad about me.

Nice to meet you, Karl.

Hi! It's a bigger pleasure for me.

Wouldn't you sit?

Did your friend talk about my plans with you?

To be honest, no.

Do you know why models attract me so much?

No, why?

Because I like the way they

exhibit the goods they have.

I'm starving.

Won't we order something?

I'll get lemon vodka and caviar.

It's a wonderful choice.

If you come to the hotel with me, I can show

you the goods I have. Would you?

Thank you. I already have everything I want.

I have no doubt about that.

I said, maybe we can share.

Excuse me,

I need to go to the bathroom.

What is it about caviar?

This is sublime.

It has a rare taste,

just like a sexual assault of a woman.

They don't say it for nothing:

"It has an aphrodisiac effect."

What do you think?

I don't know.


Aphrodite's favorite food.

I'm sorry.

Are they your friends?

Not the men.

It disgusts me.

Why don't we go?

My friend won't like it.

But what can I do? That dirty fatso

should pour his saliva into others.

- Let's go.

- Sure.



I'd be glad if you don't watch via the mirror.

Oh, by the way, my name is Boris.

And mine is Ljuba.

Victor didn't like this.

He wants to know where the stuff is.

I pity you.

Do you wanna see your face in the mirror?

You'll give us the stuff, buddy,

and we'll split it between us like nothing happened.

You'll play by the rules or...

No. No, don't harm me, please.

I don't want to die.

Why didn't you do the delivery?

I have a heart disease.

Then talk.

The stuff.

Who has it?

- The stuff.

- Who did you give it to, you scumbag?

Who has the stuff?

Don't waste your time. He's dead.

Damn it.

What are we going to do now?

We'll search the place.

I need to answer it.

It's not my problem.


Yes, alright.

I'm coming.

We made a great couple,

but my work awaits me.

I should drive you home.

That's not the end of the world.

I'll return anyhow.

I can't wait to spend another night like this.

I'll miss you.

We better leave.

Hey babe.

Is that all yours?

F*** off.



Oh, my god! What happened, Masha?

Let' say you're right. They killed both of them.

But who did this?

Now, the most important thing

is to get rid of your ugly guest.

Why don't we call the police?
