About Ocho apellidos marroquís Movie:

A Moroccan Affair (Spanish: Ocho apellidos marroquís) is a Spanish romantic comedy film directed by Álvaro Fernández Armero from a screenplay by Daniel Castro which stars Julián López, Michelle Jenner, Elena Irureta, and María Ramos.

Originally it was filmed under the title “Casi Familia” (Almost Family). At the last minute before the premiere, the film was retitled and rebranded as a sequel to box-office hits Spanish Affair (2014) and Spanish Affair 2 (2015).

The film was shot in between Morocco (Essaouira), Cantabria (San Vicente de la Barquera), and Madrid.

Ocho apellidos marroquís was released on December 1, 2023, by Universal Pictures International Spain.

The film had a domestic box-office gross of over €1.68 million in its opening weekend, good for the 2nd largest debut for a Spanish film in 2023, but trailing well below the figures of its predecessors.
