The Perfect Girl is inspired by Jorgen Leth’s The Perfect Human. The Perfect Human explores the universal fear and realization that no human is perfect, while The Perfect Girl explores a fear and realization deeply rooted in society: the fact that everyone ages. The perfect girl smiles as if to flirt, and her every movement is fluent. However, she is struck with a revelation: she will age just like everyone else. She is fearful of the physical prospect of aging, but decides to ignore this fear. At the end, she broods over approaching motherhood–the end of a girl’s youth.
