12 June 2004 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

Technically this was a soap opera, a latin soap opera. If all soap operas were made the way Cambalacho was made, they would probably have to give an Academy award for best soap opera. That is how good and different this show was. Fernanda Montenegro gave an incredible performance, and the rest of the cast was just perfect. During a few months while attending college this guys made my laugh my butt off every weekday at 1 pm. No matter how tough school got I always had my Cambalacho hour. I still miss them.

Too bad that after all these years, the rest of Latin America hasn't got a page from the Brazilian manual on how to make TV.
