Fun Spanish comedy full of entertainment , humor and sheer amusement , being become Box Office Phenom in Spain
Emilio Martinez Lazaro's romantic comedy with fine actors , adequate cinematography , sensitive score and professional direction . Romantic as well as entertaining comedy "Spanish Affair" (Ocho Apellidos Vascos) is taking the country by storm , getting a bit hit smash . Spanish comedy in which some attractive actors give terrific and sympathetic acting along with a funny screenplay filled with funny and bemusing situations . It deals with Rafael, (Dani Rovira) a Seville citizen who has never left the Spanish region of Andalucia, decides to leave his homeland to follow Amaia (Clara Lago) , a Basque girl unlike other women he has known . He become involved into improbable situations when goes to Vascongadas and meets his love but also her peculiar father (Kara Errejalde) and a middle aged lady from Caceres (Carmen Machi) .
This enticing comedy contains emotion , humor , amusement and lots of jokes and laughs . The main premise is the following : our two protagonists get mixed up in all kinds of absurd , hilarious and even romantic incidents when appearing her father they attempting to pose as lovers and preparing their next wedding . The film moves in fits and starts most of which would be desirable, with more traps the viewer resists any kind , and moments of enjoyment and others quite a few embarrassing . This enjoyable Spanish comedy has humor , nice players , entertaining situations and lots of fun . Fun comedy and its success on the Bigscreen owes much to the Smallscreen , including romantic touches here and there and in which humor and entertainment are well guaranteed . The flick relies heavily on the continued relationship among four starring , but it doesn't make boring but entertaining . The picture attempts to spread optimism about the events of life , culture differences and love , including its amusing sides . The roles in this film are all lovable despite being rather pathetic and silly . Witty and agreeable screenplay from Borja Cobeaga and Diego San José , considered to be new kings of Spanish comedy . Dani Rovira steals the show as likable young who goes after his new conquest , he is the heart of the movie , he's great along with his couple , a very beautiful Clara Lago . Special mention to Kara Erejalde as grumpy daddy and sympathetic Carmen Machi , as always . Agreeable support cast gives good acting such as Alberto López as Joaquín , Alfonso Sánchez as Curro and special appearance by Aitor Mazo as embarrassing Padre Inaxio who receives a particular confession from Rafael/Dani Rivera.
