malagaHis life revolves around the film industry and that's why, when asked by Benalmádena council to make a promotional video of the municipality for the Fitur tourism fair, he decided it should be more of a film than an advert.
An advance of this production, with its espionage and secret agents, is now available on the SUR website, where you can see that, from the luxury car to the martini "shaken, not stirred", there are plenty of similarities to the most famous spy in the history of cinema. Actor Héctor Meres and model Claudia González play the leading roles, in which they are pursued by the villains, played by Steven Lance and Víctor Castilla (both from the Malaka series), around 30 places of interest in Benalmádena.
The video begins on the beach by Bil Bil castle with an amusing take on the appearance of Ursula Andress in Dr No (1962) and later Halle Berry in Die Another Day (2002), but here it is Héctor Meres who rises sensually from the water and exchanges glances with González.
Their attempts to shake off their pursuers take the couple to the golf course, just like the legendary Goldfinger (1964), a hotel swimming pool to shed clothing in the style of Licence to Kill (1989), a trip on the cable car in the footsteps of Moonraker (1979) and a spectacular entrance by boat to Puerto Marina in the style of Skyfall (2012). The fair scene in The Living Daylights (1987) is transferred to Tivoli World, and on this occasion the inevitable casino in so many of the Bond films is at the popular Hotel Torrequebrada.
"Benalmádena is the perfect setting for a film, and is ideal for linking with the Bond movies," says García, who made the video at the end of November. He, and the council, are sure that no other promotional video at Fitur will be anything like it.
