  • Spanish Affair (Ocho Apellidos Vascos)

    Spanish Affair (Ocho Apellidos Vascos)

    Spanish Affair starts out in in a Seville flamenco bar where Rafa offends feisty Basque lass Amaia with some anti-Basque jokes, but offense turns to attraction. After spending the night together, he follows her to Basque Country to win her heart. Clara, who doesn’t want her fervently nationalistic father to know she’s been jilted by her fiancé, asks Rafa to pretend to be her groom.. During those three days, he’ll have to change his accent, and lie to no end, pretending to be Basque, with hilarious results. “Spanish Affair has been designed to keep everyone happy. Wisely, director Martinez-Lazaro (whose The Wrong Side of the Bed did big business in 2002) has preferred to be workmanlike rather than showy, letting the script and dialogue work of Diego San Jose and Borja Cobeaga create the sparks.” - Jonathan Holland, The Hollywood Reporter

A tense and jagged drama. Moss and Waterston play some extraordinary duets." — Richard Brody, The New Yorker
