Money Heist for sure is the most commented series of the moment. If you have not watched, run, because there is no shortage of reasons to watch! But even for those who have already watched, we have listed 10 curiosities about the series. Check out!!
A mysterious man, who goes by the name of El Profesor (“The Professor”), is planning the biggest heist ever to occur. In order to carry out the ambitious plan, he recruits a gang of eight people with certain abilities who have nothing to lose. The goal is to enter the Royal Mint of Spain and print €2.4 billion. In order to do this, they need eleven days of seclusion, during which they will have to deal with sixty-seven hostages and the elite forces of the police.
1. Berlín and El Profesor are brothers
The suggestion of this relationship came from the actors themselves. What Álvaro Morte (El Professor) revealed was that Berlin was his older brother, the son of a different mother. He also said that his character only knew a little Russian, because he took his brother Berlin to Russia, to try to make an experimental treatment for his illness.
2. Didn’t portray the true mint in Spain
The facade we see as the Mint throughout the series, in fact it is the Council of Scientific Investigations (CSIC), which was released for recordings at the weekend. The Mint did not authorize the recording.
3. Sugar cubes in the exchange of shots of the first chapter
In the first chapter of Money Heist, when the robbers leave the mint and end up exchanging shots with the police, when we see the glass s of a falling car, they are actually sugar cubes, simulating shrapnel.
4. First Spanish series that revolves around an assault
Although not an “original” theme and never seen before, it was the first time he was part of a series of Spanish fiction.
5. The Importance of “Bella, Ciao”
The Italian song “Bella, Ciao” became a sort of anthem of the series, being present in several moments. But the production featured other important musical references, such as when the Professor touches on the theme of the classic Smash of Master for Rachel. The film is one of the most famous blows in film history.
6. Names of cities everywhere
Of course the fans realized that all the criminals who invaded the Mint have the name of a city as an alias: Rio, Berlin, Moscow, Nairobi, Tokyo, Denver, Helsinki and Oslo. But that’s not all. The planes of the assailants also take names of cities, like Valencia, Cameroon (that in this case is a country) and Chernobyl. And even the bar we see on the scene is called Bar Hanoi.
7. Classic Visual 1994
The Tokyo look (Ursula Corberó) was inspired by Mathilda, Natalie Portman’s character in Luc Besson’s classic film The Professional, 1994
8. Red Objects
It’s not just the jumpsuit of characters: from the first scene of the series, the color appears at different times, as in other pieces of clothing, plates and objects (the phone used by the robbers, for example). According to the program’s director of photography, Migue Amoedo, red brings strength and intensity, something the creator, Alex Pina, wanted to pass on to the viewer.
9. Berlin disease doesn’t exist in real life
In the Money Heist plot, Berlin (Pedro Alonso) suffers from a disease called Helmer’s myopathy. A disease of this name does not exist in real life – but, according to what has been shown so far, the character appears to have mitochondrial myopathy, a genetic disorder that causes progressive loss of muscle strength. The name comes from the origin of the problem: a malfunction of the mitochondria, responsible for supplying energy to the cells of the body.
10. The series made more success outside Spain than inside
Thanks to streaming, Money Heist crossed the Spanish borders and became a hit in the rest of the world. There, the audience was good (more than 1.1 million people followed the end of the plot) and the series got nominated for some awards. But success in countries like France, Argentina and, of course, Brazil made it stay for five weeks as the most marathoned series in the TV Time application ranking.
