Beauty Rules

The film reflects on the beauty industry. How we allow ourselves to be tricked into a vain dream to become a little more beautiful, look a little younger. We know we are seduced by nonsense but can not help it. The film wants to convey the feeling of us walking in the shop as a customer, but in the store turns into a problem, a wandering disaster. But help is available.

Director Statement

In the longing and pursuit of beauty and youth, we easily lose judgment. We see ourselves as wise reflective source-critical individuals until we are confronted with the beauty industry's images, propaganda and strange unscientific studies. We know we are seduced by nonsense but can not help it. Finally we can be happy or at least a little happier or in the worst case a little less unhappy. The film questions the beauty industry. How we easily let ourselves be fooled into a vain dream to become a little more beautiful, look a little younger.
