Mall Girls (Galerianki, 2009)
Director: Katarzyna Rosłaniec
Parents always wonder what their children do when they’re not around and how their children behave with their friends, especially in the complicated and troubled young teenage years.
Eurochannel takes you to the shallow world of a bunch of teenage girls making their way in life while they try to match their feelings with their desires. It all begins when Alicja’s parents move to a new city; thereby, she has to join a new school in the middle of the year, carrying all the consequences of making friends once again. That could be simple for an adult, but Alicja is a shy teenage girl.
For her fortune, the most popular girls in school invite her to go along for a view-shopping in an expensive mall. Bringing to the front the most common problems every parent faces, Mall Girls reveal that the princess one might thing a daughter is, could turn into an interested young lady capable of –and sometimes up to- flirt with any man rich enough to buy whatever she wants... of course, she would have to compensate it back in a way any parent wouldn’t like to know.
Fourteen-year-old Alicja joins a new class in mid-term and she’s lonely in her new environment. One day a classmate invites her to hang out at the new shopping mall, where they can go window-shopping for expensive cosmetics, eat ice cream for lunch, listen to music, stare at elegant people and ... meet potential “sponsors”.
