Did You Know?

Manuel Ángel Egea and Carlos López, writers of the original film The Girl of Your Dreams (1998) (where eight characters from The Queen of Spain (2016) were created and presented for the first time) sued Fernando Trueba (director) and his wife, Cristina Huete (producer) for breach of contract and for not acknowledging and respecting the authorship and the creation of their characters.The other two writers of The Girl of Your Dreams (1998) were Rafael Azcona and David Trueba. Rafael Azcona died in 2008 and David Trueba is brother of Fernando Trueba, the director of both films and also is brother-in-law of Cristina Huete, producer of both films and also producer of five films directed by him, David Trueba. David Trueba said : " I like to receive credit in the films I worked, but not in the films I did nothing. As author of the first film I have nothing to claim in the second one"See more »
Anachronisms: The film takes place in 1956, but in Macarena's dressing room there is a poster of the film El sol sale todos los días, that was released on January 1958.See more »

As good as its predecessor, 30 November 2016
Author: Mike Garcia from Spain

Sequel to "La Niña De Tus Ojos", which brings together the entire cast of the previous film, retaking the story of the characters about 20 years after what happened in the previous film, almost the same time that both films have been released between them.

Trueba pays tribute to the Spanish cinema of the 50s, returning to the character of Macarena Granada (played again by a wonderful Penelope Cruz) that after what happened in the previous film becomes a star in Hollywood and returns to Spain to star in a Biopic of Queen Isabella the Catholic ...

But Trueba is not limited to making a history of cinema within the cinema, but rather portrays a cold and gray Spain that at that time seemed to have lost all hope for a better future ... And as with the previous film, Story moves between comedy and drama achieving a perfect balance resulting in a movie as good and as its predecessor ...
