A DEBATED AND QUESTIONABLE SUCCESS.

The house of paper, in Spanish “la casa de Papel” is a Spanish television series; initially it was not very successful even at a national level, so much  that it risked being closed down. Later on a famous worldwide platform decided to buy the series, so it soon became a very famous and worldwide known TV series. 

 The story tells of the developments of an extremely ambitious and original robbery or having thousands of millions of banknotes printed and running away with the loot.  The creator of this enterprise is a man known as “the Professor”.  the Professor, in fact, carefully selects a group of individuals with a criminal record, who have nothing to lose.

 Given the ban on disclosing their identity, each member of the gang is assigned the name of a city: Tokyo, Moscow, Berlin, Nairobi, Rio, Denver, Helsinki and Oslo.

 During the course of events, differences arise between the eight robbers and the risk of compromising the entire operation is high.  The members of the gang manage to enter the State mint, in an action coordinated from the outside by the Professor.  The imprisonment inside the mint is estimated at approximately 10 days, the time necessary to print the pre-established sum and create the escape route. The police takes the necessary countermeasures and sends Inspector Raquel Murillo, a woman of great determination, to the scene as a negotiator. Everything seems to proceed as planned by the Professor, but at a certain point, despite the careful preparation, the story takes unexpected developments, also and above all on a personal level, which jeopardize the outcome of the blow and change everyone’s lives of the protagonists, The coup succeeds and the gang escapes to paradisiacal islands in groups of two, traveling the world for two years and thus concluding the first season.

The reviews for this series range from very positive to negative. Some call it an energising and engaging series; it contains cultural references and brandishes certain values such as loyalty and love. Some call it adventurous. Others consider it a dull and banal series, long and far-fetched. Whether it is considered adventurous or not, banal or thrilling one thing is certain, by mixing so many genres they have created a winning formula.
