When and where did the production of Sounds Like Love take place?

Principal photography for the movie began on October 5th, 2020 and was carried out in Madrid, Spain and Lisbon, Portugal.

Elísabet Benavent, the author of the novels, confirmed that filming had come to an end by May 2021.

Benavant also confirmed some questions regarding how much of the novels were being adapted into the movie:

It was very difficult, they had a challenge. They are two books of more than 500 pages and they had to put them together in 90 minutes of film. There are plots that cannot be developed because there is no time and, even so, how they have respected the spirit of each character, how they have collected the most important things to make them shine… I have seen the result and it is incredible.

The condensing down of two novels into one movie will either work incredibly well, or some plot points could get lost in translation.


What is the run time of Sounds Like Love?

According to the author Sounds Like Love has an approximate runtime of 90 minutes.
