Ocho apellidos vascos (Eight Basque Surnames)
Ocho apellidos vascos (Eight Basque Surnames), known as Spanish Affair in English, is a 2014 Spanish comedy film directed by Emilio Martínez-Lázaro.
It premiered in Spain on March 14, 2014. Six weeks after its release, it became the second biggest box office hit ever in Spain, behind Avatar.
Rafa (Dani Rovira) has never left his native Seville, Andalucía, until he meets a Basque girl named Amaia (Clara Lago), who resists his seduction techniques.
Against his friends' advice, he follows her to Euskadi (Basque Country) after she stays the night in his house and forgets her purse.
A series of misunderstandings forces Rafa to impersonate a full-blooded Basque with eight surnames (Gabilondo, Urdangarín, Zubizarreta, Arguiñano from the father and Igartiburu, Erentxun, Otegi and Clemente from the mother) and he gets more and more entangled in that character in order to get his way.
