Rafa has never left his native Seville, Andalusia, until he meets a Basque woman named Amaia who resists his seduction techniques. Against his friends' advice, he follows her to a small separatist town in the Basque Country, after she stays the night in his house and forgets her purse. A series of misunderstandings force Rafa to impersonate a full-blooded Basque with eight surnames, and get more and more entangled in that character so that he can get his way. By April 2014, Spanish Affair became the highest grossing Spanish film in Spain in history.

Rafa un sevillano que nunca ha salido de Andalucía, abandona su tierra natal para seguir a Amaia, una joven vasca que a diferencia de otras mujeres que ha conocido se resiste a sus técnicas de seducción. Para ello, y en contra de los consejos de sus amigos, decide viajar al pueblo de su pretendida, en el corazón abertzale del País Vasco. Una serie de circunstancias llevarán al joven sevillano a tener que hacerse pasar por un auténtico vasco con ocho apellidos, e ir enredándose cada vez más en el personaje para lograr sus propósitos. En abril de 2014, Ocho apellidos vascos se convirtió en la película española más vista y con la mayor recaudación de toda la historia de España.

OPENING NIGHT FIESTA! Starting at 5:30pm, there will be a pre-screening party with tapas and a cash bar!
