Film Synopsis: Rafael, a Seville citizen who has never left the Spanish region of Andalucía, decides to leave his homeland to follow Amaia, a Basque girl unlike any other woman he has known.
Spanish Affair (original title Ocho apellidos vascos) is the highest grossing Spanish film in Spanish box office history. It’s in Spanish with English subtitles, and its duration is approximately 100 minutes. This enjoyable Spanish comedy has humor and satire, well-known and engaging actors, entertaining situations and lots of fun.
We hope to see you there.
