maybe the best soap opera in the history of Mexican TV
Maria Ines is a 50 years old woman who has been raised in a conservative tradition. When her husband Ignacio leaves her, she has to build her life again, facing the disapproval of those who expect a Mexican woman to be everything but free and assertive.
The soap opera genre has always been popular in Mexico, but this particular one had everybody, including the intellectuals and the educated classes glued to the TV screen.
It was realistic, it had excellent dialogues, written by and for intelligent people, it used cinematographic techniques (e.g. the camera movements) in a refreshing way, it touched interesting and previously avoided subjects like divorce, abortion, AIDS, women's lib and drugs, and it had a wonderful cast. I encourage you to watch it if you have the chance.
