    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

  • The Second Mother (Que horas Ela Volta?)

    The Second Mother (Que horas Ela Volta?)

    Val, a hard-working live-in housekeeper, is perfectly content to take care of every one of her wealthy employers’ needs, from cooking and cleaning to being a surrogate mother to their teenage son, who she has raised since he was a toddler. But when Val’s estranged daughter Jessica suddenly shows up the unspoken but intrinsic class barriers that exist within the home are thrown into disarray. “The Second Mother is a satisfying contradiction. It's a soap opera with a social conscience that casually mixes dramatic elements about serious class issues with a crowd-pleasing audience picture sensibility.” - Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
