Ocho Apellidos Vascos
21 May 2017 | by javi-y-se-acaboSee all my reviews

This movie is one of the best Spanish comedies I have seen. i have to say that I'm Spanish and I watched this in the theater and I couldn't stop laughing.

The story follows Rafael (Dani Rovira), a Sevillian who has never left Andalucia, who decides to leave his homeland to follow Amaia (Clara Lago), a Basque girl he has fall in love with. The story may seem quite cliché and maybe it is but the truly important part of this movie are the four main characters. They all have a very good chemistry. Dani Rovira and Clara Lago did it very well in the roles of the wannabe couple and they provided very funny moments and Carmen Machi was also very funny but the true star in here is Karra Elejalde who plays the basque father of Amaia and he delivers some very amusing moments with Dani Rovira.

The Basque Country and Andalucia are very well captured in here with some very beautiful shots of both places. The music by Fernando Velazquez is both emotional and funny with the use of many Spanish typical sounds.

This movie probably is for Spanish people because if you're not familiar with all the stereotypes and jokes and problems we have in here you probably won't enjoy the movie the half as I did, but for me it was really amazing. It specially great to watch in it's original version so I recommend you to watch in Spanish to hear all the accents and so.
