Spanish Affair (8 Apellidos Vascos)

March 7th, ACMI CINEMAS, 6:30 pm.

Winner: Best Supporting Actor, Best Breakthrough Actor, Best Support Actress - Goya Awards 2015 


This comedic tale tracks a young southerner who seeks to win the heart of a Basque girl, making it a very Spanish affair indeed.

The biggest Spanish box-office hit in history is this fun rom-com set in the charming Basque countryside. Rafa (Dani Rovira) is an Andalucian male who travels to the heart of Basque country in pursuit of love. However, the object of his affections – the feisty Basque girl Amaia (Clara Lago) – wants nothing to do with him. That is until her fervently nationalistic father Koldo (Karra Elejalde) arrives mistakenly believing her to still be engaged to the fiancé who recently jilted her. Here, the fun really starts with a classic comedy of errors delivered by a host of entirely loveable characters.
