I will discuss the exact mapping between the Liouville field theory, introduced in the context of 2D quantum gravity, and a broad class of glassy models displaying a freezing transition. Exact asymptotics of Liouville field theory correlation functions provide predictions of new critical behaviours and in particular extend to arbitrary temperature a recent work of Derrida and Mottishaw on the directed polymer on a Cayley tree.
