Born in 1966, Achero Mañas first followed in the steps of his mother, actress Paloma Lorena (who played in two of his films), but he soon turned from thespian to film director. He made three shorts before meeting with success - both public and critical - with El Bola (2000), the sensitive portrait of a pair of big city kids, reminiscent of François Truffaut's The 400 Blows (1959). His second feature November (2003) also garnered least five awards but he was less successful with Blackwhite (2004). After five years in the wilderness, Mañas is making a come back with Todo lo que tú quieras (2010).
