Lately, I have literally been obsessed with the Spanish TV show “la casa de papel”. It is extraordinary, believe me, right from the start I could not take my eyes off my laptop’s screen.
I had never seen a Spanish TV show before. I know Spanish so I managed to get to the end of the show and it left me speechless. Now that I finished it I don’t know what to watch anymore! It was too good unfortunately it was not very long.
If you don’t know what it is you should definitively watch it! It is about a very smart man “el profesor” that has planned the biggest heist ever. The heist was his father’s idea, who got shot by the police during a robbery. He has been planning it as a sort of revenge for about 5 years and he has it all figured out. He recruits a group of people with specific abilities that are willing to do anything in order to succeed in the plan and they rehearse everything within two months. Their plan in to enter the Royal Mint of Spain and print about 24000 millions of euros themselves. To do this they need to distract the police in order to stall them long enough to reach their goal and deal with the hostages.
The show is full of twists and turns and the tension is always high but that’s what I liked about it, it leaves you hanging all the time and you never know what to expect. For example, el profesor starts to fall for the police inspector that is leading the case and everything becomes more tricky but exciting at the same time.
The cast is literally amazing, the actors are so good! I was impressed by “el profesor ” who guides the group who is incredibly intelligent and predicts every move of the police. All the characters are very peculiar and they all have some characteristics that somehow interfere with the plan.
I think that It might be one of the best tv shows I have watched this year. I really really recommend it if you haven’t seen it. The first season can be found in many languages, the second one is mostly in Spanish but I found some links that provide the version with English subtitles.
Here’s the trailer!!
