Best movie ever!
18 July 2017 | by pabloibonSee all my reviews

8 BASQUE SURNAMES This romantic comedy was released in 2014 by the director Emilio Martinez-Lazaro. The main characters of this family-friendly film are played by Clara Lago, Dani Rovira, Carmen Machi and Karra Elejalde. It is a love story between two people who live in different parts of Spain, one is from the south and the other one from the north. Rafa, who lives in Sevilla, goes to Amaya's village for trying to make her fall in love with him.

This film is said to be the best Spanish film ever because it shows the different topics from each part of Spain, making us laugh about our defects. In addition, the actors have managed to learn different accents, which make it extremely funny.

On the other hand, it may be annoying for people from the north of Spain because of its jokes are about them. Although it is the funniest film I have ever seen, unless you're Spanish it's hard to understand.

When it was released, Spanish cinemas were very crowded, beating the record of the most tickets sold. I would recommend this terrific film to all Spanish speakers, I reckon you must watch this film at least once in your life!
