Everything that shines to watch on television and in streaming on Chérie 25
Who has never been ashamed of his mother’s new hairstyle, his father’s bad jokes, the velvet sofa in the living room, a childhood friend delighted with her CDI at the town hall?
Lila and Ely live in Puteaux, on the other side of the bridge that separates them from Paris. Like two sisters, they share everything and together dream of another life and the latest trendy shoes.
From little muddles to big lies, they will do everything to try to penetrate a world that is not theirs, a world of happy few and pomp, where everything seems possible to them. But all that glitters …
Everything that shines : a creation of the duo Géraldine Nakache and Leïla Bekhti
Everything that shines sign a major meeting between the two actresses Geraldine Nakache and Leïla Bekhti. Since this experience, they have told the press that they are “Become sisters”. Their collaboration was renewed on Us York (2011), also directed by the duo Géraldine Nakache and Herve Mimran.
The film Everything that shines also propelled the two actresses to the rank of popular actresses. We could find in particular Geraldine Nakache in Under Girls’ Skirts (2014), Meet at Atlit (2014) or The Adventures of Spirou and Fantasio (2018).
But the film especially propelled the career of Leïla Bekhti, who received a Caesar of the Best young female hope for this role. The actress went on to appear in major films like Before winter (2013), Us three or nothing (2014) or comedy The Great Bath (2018). She also appeared on television playing in the series Polar Day by Canal +.
Song about my funny life by Véronique Sanson as a hymn
Everything that shines is also famous for the revival of the Song about my funny life by the two protagonists of the film. The song is originally written and sung by Véronique Sanson in 1972. Thanks to the film, the song took on a second youth and allowed it to be discovered by a new generation.
Audrey Lamy, the other discovery of the film
Public and critical success (with a César at stake) at its release, Everything that shines thus hatched the actress Leïla Bekhti. But the other actress to have benefited from the success of the film is of course Audrey Lamy.
Playing to the full on her quirky and humorous side, the young actress, sister ofAlexandra Lamy, was subsequently offered a recurring role in the flagship series Scenes of households between 2009 and 2018. The actress is also a theater actress with in particular a one woman show, Last before Vegas, directed by Alex lutz. The show took place on all stages of France for more than five years. The pretty blonde is also very present in the cinema. We could see her for example in the film My Reum (2018) by Frédéric Quiring.
The film Everything that shines has received many awards. In addition to the already mentioned Caesar of Leïla Bekhti, the feature film won the Special Jury Prize and the Europe 1 Audience Prize at Alpe d’Huez International Comedy Film Festival in 2010. It was also awarded the Gold Star in 2011, a prize for a first film by the French Cinema Press Academy.
