Hello, my name is Luis Abbou Planisi
Luis Abbou Planisi (b. Manacor, Spain, 1999) published his first film review in a magazine when he was just 15 years old.
Luis become a Bond fan thanks to a chance meeting with actor Dame Judi Dench in Harrods, London. At the age of 16, his first book, James Bond: detrás del smoking, about the most famous film franchise ever, was published in Spanish.
In December 2017, when he was 18, a new book was published worldwide in English under the title James Bond: Behind the Tuxedo including more than twenty-five exclusive interviews and in early 2018 second edition in hard cover published.
A reader by day and writer by night, the Spaniard has also col- laborated with radio programs and podcasts talking about 007, and films in general. In May 2018, Luis introduced a screening of Thunderball at The Cinema Museum, in London, followed by a Q&A with Sylvan Mason, author Robert Sellers and Bond girl Martine Beswick and him. Currently he is writing for the Spanish website EsenciaCine and the magazines 7Setmanari and Ala Est, among others.
I hope this blog inspires you to dream, as film does. Feel free to leave a comment or follow me on social media!
I like to push myself beyond the limit every now and again.
–Dame Judi Dench
