Fans of Netflix’s Spanish crime drama series ‘La Casa De Papel’, which translates to ‘The House of Paper’ and is internationally known as ‘Money Heist’) recently received a treat. Along with the fourth season for this globally popular show arrived a documentary on the making of it, titled: ‘La casa de papel El fenómeno’ (‘Money Heist: The Phenomenon’).
The documentary film examines why and how the series sparked an exponential wave of enthusiasm around the world for a lovable group of thieves and their professor (Álvaro Morte).
The documentary includes testimonies from show creator Álex Pina, Jesús Colmenar, who heads the team of directors, and the cast that includes Úrsula Corberó, Álvaro Morte, Pedro Alonso, Alba Flores, Miguel Herrán, Jaime Lorente or Esther Acebo.
Next to this, the documentary also provides fascinating insights into the storytelling, characters and branding magic of the series. And how the saying of Marshall McLuhan, ‘the medium is the message’, also holds true here: only after the show was acquired and distributed by Netflix, it became the phenomenon it is today.
