Trivia:
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 »

7 out of 12 people found the following review useful.
Excellent portrait of the Spanish character, 5 December 2016
Author: Antonio Calero from Spain

Loved the movie, much better than the first part (La Niña de tus Ojos). A perfect representation of Spaniards characters and personality, through one of the toughest periods of Spain's history, but adding some humour to support with the story line.

The film produces tears and laughter in equal parts, making you reflect about so many things , past and present (history, politics, human relationships, love, friendship, ambition, fear...). The argument is clean and develops easily, thanks to a group of well-defined characters (enhanced from the first movie).

It's hard to find something that could be improved. Totally recommended.
