Synopsis

Marcos Ruiz de Aldazabal (Karra Elejalde) is a ruthless businessman and owner of bankrupt production company Urumea Productions. Using the San Sebastian Film Festival to his advantage, manipulative con artist Marcos plans to fool a millionairess to invest in his business by hiring a double of Ray Silvela (Jordi Molla), a prestigious American/Cuban actor, who she greatly admires.

Operation Goldenshell is a hustler comedy set in the wonderfully glamorous context of the San Sebastian Film Festival. This fast-paced con movie boasts all the best ingredients of the genre: mobsters, charmers, betrayals, romance, heartbreak, suspense… and all with the love of movies as its backdrop.

Critics Reviews

“Cuadri and his team have planned the perfect hustle. Fantastically timed plot twists easily put it in the same league as those Hollywood movies where the pace remains unrelenting, all the pieces end up slotting nicely into place and you can’t help but smile at the final surprise.” FOTOGRAMAS

“A story of loveable losers, a love letter to the world of film set in a beautiful city and dressed to impress. Fun and determined to make sure the audience have a good time... Mission accomplished.” BLOG CINE ESPAÑOL

“A wonderful declaration of love for film within a film.” EL DIARIO

“Jordi Mollà is outstanding!” SENSACINE
