Bad experience
5 November 2009 | by (Houston, USA) – See all my reviews

Doña Bárbara, seen through the eyes of Betty Kaplan. Such a bad experience for me! Ms. Kaplan can argue that she did deep research in Mr. Rómulo Gallegos work to better translate the book to film, or that Ms. Goris wanted to be Doña Bárbara so bad, that she insisted until she got the part, but the final result is a very bad version of a wonderful book. María Félix can be hated due to many reasons, but she had the attitude, Mr. Gallegos himself, after seeing her at a party claimed SHE WAS DOÑA BARBARA! From then on, María Félix was nicknamed "LA DOÑA" This Argentinian actress, Esther Goris, old, skinny and ugly, didn't have the attitude to portray such a powerful woman. It is a pity that Ms. Kaplan didn't understand or get the right idea from the text. She erased Mr. Danger in exchange of including a soft erotica moment, after the fight between Goris and Gabriel, when she puffs while she stares at the girl's breast... Here, sex didn't sell. I was against Edith González telenovela and now I am really upset after seeing this trash. There should be a law that prohibits to trash such artworks like Mr. Rómulo Gallegos "Doña Bárbara"
