Money Heist (La casa de papel), “The House of Paper,” is a Spanish television series about robbery crimes created by Álex Pina. According to one of the robbers, Tokio (Úrsula Corberó), the series narrates two long-planned robberies led by a professor (Álvaro Morte), one at the Royal Mint and the other at the Bank of Spain. The narration is similarly told in real-time and relies on flashbacks, time jumps, hidden character motivations, and unreliable complex storytellers.
Money Heist (La casa de papel), was originally called Los Desahuciados (The Evicted) at the concept stage. The series aims to subvert the conventions of the heist and combine elements of action-type, thriller, and surrealism while still being credible. Pina sees an advantage over typical heist movies because character development can span a long story arc.
