All That Glitters is a surprisingly unpretentious comedy that speaks to the aspirations and angst of many twentysomethings enthralled by the world of glamour and fashion. The film is anchored by the friendship of two central characters, who infuse the story with their daring and their dreams. All That Glitters proves once again that European cinema is decades ahead in the realm of entertainment targeting teenage girls: It is stylish, energetic, mischievous—and glittering.
