SYNOPSIS

Ely and Lila are as close as sisters. They have known each other since childhood - they share everything and dream of a different life together. They live in the same suburb, ten minutes by metro from Paris. Today, Ely and Lila no longer want to be ten minutes from their lives. From minor muddles to major lies, they will do everything in their power to try to enter this world that isn\'t theirs where everything seems possible. But they soon realize that all that glitters is not gold....


 

PROGRAM NOTE


 


 Back when it was released in France, the film
 surprised everyone in the film industry, becoming an
 unexpected box office hit. A chick flick that involves
 the working-class girls of the outskirts of Paris, All That
 Glitters maintains a bright and comical tone with quick
 film editing and transitions but sends a heavy, serious
 message. Having grown up together since they were
 young, Ely and Lila are two best friends. As shoppingmall
 employees, they are not well-off, but have a nice
 and easygoing family and funny and warm-hearted
 neighbors. Nonetheless, both Ely and Lila do not
 want to stay in this current situation. Then by chance,
 happens to Paris\' elite upper-class photographer
 Agathe and model Joan, and is given the opportunity
 to climb up the social ladder. Ely and Lila begin eating
 with them at expensive restaurants and hanging
 out with the trendy people in exclusive clubs and
 are excited by the feeling that they have become a
 part of the elite social circle. Ely goes in and out of
 Agathe and Joan\'s fancy, luxurious apartments while
 babysitting their son and Lila meets a posh and rich
 boyfriend at the club. However, these elite \'friends\' of
 theirs were not as open-minded as they were carefree.
 While Ely and Lila considered them to be their friends,
 Agathe, Joan, and everyone else in the elite world
 viewed Ely and Lila either as servants who they can
 call whenever they need to or as accessories that
 are fun and new for now but can be thrown away any
 minute. Furthermore, their difficult, arduous attempts
 to enter the upper-class puts a strain on Ely and Lila\'s
 friendship. Will they eventually come to realize that all
 that glitters is not gold? [CHO HyeYoung]
