Did You Know?

Became a hit in the former Soviet Union, particularly among children. So much so that during its airing and afterward it became a common practice at many schools for the prettiest girl in each class to be referred to as "Isaura". Some appropriate students could also be "named" after other characters of the series.See more »

Just yet another great blend of reality and Brazilian scripts., 13 May 2007
Author: moi encore from United States

I first watched this TELENOVELA in the late eighties (dopped in French) and couldn't bare but weep. I recently started watching a re-run (this time on the US-Mexican network: Telemundo) and still remember the story line like it was yesterday!, but what amazes me is how touched i still feel. Lucelio Santos, in my view, practically made Globo TV the power house it is today, with her amazing performance on this series. The expressions are amazingly real, not to mention the setting and script.

The portrayal of Brazil's economic and social stance is chronologically correct,compared to Brazils reality at the time (ie very little fiction is used) Of late ther's been another very similar telenovela (though a little more fictionalthan real) Terra Nostra
