Nina Marker won Elite Model Look in Denmark in 2014 and finished in the Top 10 in Shenzen. Since, she has walked for Christopher Kane and Margaret Howell and shot for Zara. Like lots of models, she passes the time on planes with her favourite movies. “The films on this list, I’ve watched them a thousand times. If it’s a good movie, I will watch it over and over again, until I get tired of it,” she said. Here she gives us her top 8 - find the other 2 on Rough Online.

Fight Club (1999)

David Fincher is amazing. The way they cut the film, it just thrills me. And the plot twist at the end is amazing, the plot twist which you don’t see coming. The way they reveal it and the way Brad Pitt flashes back, even just for a millisecond is amazing. The book is also really good, the writer Chuck Palahniuk is really good. It’s really poetic, the prose is just so great.

Howl’s Moving Castle (2004)

I used to watch a lot of Japanese movies when I was younger, but now I don’t any more. My imagination was a lot better back then, and I think you need that, the wheels turning in your head to watch some Japanese animation. Between this and Spirited Away, I choose this one, because it’s more romantic. I’m not really a romantic person, but it’s part of my childhood. Even though she’s an old woman, but all the characters are so great, it’s a whole world with all this magic, it’s so elaborate with so much detail in every scene, you can see that everything is hand drawn. I loved Howl when I was younger, because I was a real emo! [laughs] The soundtrack is also beautiful, I listen to it when I’m on the train and just zone out.

Black Swan (2010)

When the main character dances, you get shivers every time, the way the sound mix is done means that every time her feet touch the floor, it’s in time to the music, it’s so good. She’s schizophrenic and there’s one scene where she just finished dancing the black swan and she shivers and there’s black feathers going up her arms, it’s amazing. It’s my favourite part.

Ratatouille (2007)

I love food movies! I also love Chocolat with Johnny Depp. It makes me hungry to watch but I love it! I also really love Pixar films, they are so cute. I love montages in films, when they learn something new, and there’s a montage with music in the background, it’s cheesy but it’s so good!

Lord of the Rings trilogy (2001, 2002 and 2003)

I have always been really into fantasy, I love the adventures of it. I’ve tried to read the book but it’s so heavy! When I was younger, I loved Legolas, I thought he was so beautiful! I just wanted to be an elf! But now, I really love Frodo. He’s like a child, I want to protect him. He’s so innocent and he goes through so much and he’s so brave, he’s like my child.

Fantastic Mr Fox (2009)

I love films by Wes Anderson. I like the symmetry, I like the colours, I like the characters, it’s a bit quirky but not too much. The scripts are always really good. I watched Fantastic Mr Fox on the plane today, and one of the lines is really good, because they’re all animals, obviously. Mrs Fox says to Mr Fox, “why did you lie to me?” And it’s just like, “because I’m a wild animal!” That just makes so much sense! Like yeah, it’s a wild animal! [laughs] I really like that.
