For a precise week, the fourth series of “La Casa de Papel” has been released on Netflix, not only winning a place in the Top 10 of the TV series on the platform, but according to data, in the last week in the Top 10 of the most viewed content on Netflix , the Spanish titles are 5 out of 10.
In third place, behind La casa de Papel and his behind-the-scenes documentary, there are also Elite, despite the third season being released a month ago, and Toy Boy, a series of trash about the revenge of an ex-convict stripper . Vis à vis, a 2015 series, a hot Spanish version of Orange Is the New Black has also recently climbed to the top. Before it was crushed by Tiger King, in the last few weeks there has been a lot of talk about a movie: The hole (El hoyo). Covered with criticism, before ending on Netflix he had debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival and in Italy at the Torino Film Festival, perhaps the most important independent film festival in Italy.
The Spanish film production won second place on Netflix (after the American one) with the most success ever, but above all in a very short time.
For many years the Spanish media scene has been dominated by very few names from the world of cinema, Pedro Almodóvar, Penélope Cruz, Javier Bardem and Antonio Banderas, while the only two successful European products in recent years have been Il Segreto and Paso Adelante. A rematch? Absolutely not. Netflix knows how to manipulate algorithms well in its content production.
If you notice, the actors are always them. This is the case of Miguel Herrán, Jaime Lorente and María Pedraza (respectively Rio, Denver and Alison Parker of La casa de Papel), also protagonists of Elite; or Alba Flores and Najwa Nimri (Nairobi and Alicia Sierra in La Casa de Papel), so loved by the public as to convince them to recover Vis à vis from oblivion. Not only does it influence the actor’s skill, but it is a psychological influence of affection on that actor. Danna Paola, (Lucrezia di Élite) has more than 20 million followers on Instagram, more than Chiara Ferragni, Úrsula Corberó (Tokyo from La casa di carta) and Ester Expósito (Carla di Élite) more than 16 million, while Arón Piper (Ander di Elite) has just passed 10.
