Written and helmed by Rubin Stein, Netflix’s ‘Tin & Tina’ is a Spanish psychological thriller movie starring Milena Smit as Lola, a young woman who goes through a traumatic miscarriage that dangles her belief in God. With her partner, Adolfo (Jaime Lorente), she adopts and brings home two peculiar orphan twins — Tin and his sister Tina. Sooner than later, the siblings’ ultra-Catholic beliefs disturb Lola and Adolfo as their patience gets tested to the limit.
Based on the 2013 eponymous short film, the thriller movie unfolds in early 1980s Spain, while the relatively dark visuals complement the narrative’s eerie themes and vibe. Moreover, the backdrops of the young couple’s residence and the convent from where the twins get adopted will likely make you curious about the actual filming sites. If you want to know where ‘Tin & Tina’ was shot, we have you covered!
Tin & Tina Filming Locations
‘Tin & Tina’ was filmed entirely in Spain, particularly in and around the Province of Seville. As per reports, principal photography for the mystery movie commenced in late July 2021 and wrapped up in about seven weeks or so in September of the same year. Now, without further ado, let’s traverse through all the specific locations that feature in the Netflix movie!
Province of Seville, Spain
Situated in the western portion of Spain’s autonomous community of Andalusia, the Province of Seville served as the primary production location for ‘Tin & Tina.’ Specifically, the premises of the Hacienda San Felipe at Carretera Aznalcollar, 0 Km 1, 800, in Seville, were used to shoot the scenes involving Lola and Adolfo’s residence. Hence, the psychological thriller movie features several exterior and interior shots of the property.
Besides, the scenes set in the convent or orphanage from where the young couple adopts the titular twins were lensed on location in and around Monasterio de San Isidoro del Campo at Avenue de San Isidoro, 18, in the town of Santiponce. Founded in 1301 by Alonso Pérez de Guzmán, the monastery comprises two Gothic naves, Mudejar-style cloisters, the Chapter House, the refectory, and the Baroque Tower, some of which you might spot in the backdrop of various scenes in ‘Tin & Tina.’
During a conversation with ABC de Sevilla in October 2021, Milena Smit talked about the crew’s inconveniences during the shoot due to unfavorable climate conditions. She said, “We have had days that have been more bearable thanks to the team, but in others, there were changes of costume for the change of season, with clothes that gave a lot of heat and had to endure. Those days have been especially hard.”
Apart from the Spanish thriller movie, the Province of Seville has hosted the production of numerous film and TV projects over the years. Consequently, the province’s locales have been featured in ‘Your Son,’ ‘Beaks: The Movie,’ ‘The Ignorance of Blood,’ ‘Ánimas,’ ‘Unbridled,’ and ‘The Invisible Girl.’
