Sebastian del Amo
This Mexican telenovela, MIRADA DE MUJER (View of a Woman) shows a woman's view of several issues. The main issue is infidelity.
Maria Ines has three children and is happily married - or so she thinks. She is shocked and devastated to learn that her husband has a lover (a much younger woman) and he wants a divorce from her. The story shows how Maria Ines, her family and friends handle this life-changing situation.
In addition to the infidelity theme, other issues covered are: unplanned pregnancy, interracial dating, eating disorders, traditional school of thought about marriage versus the modern school of thought, breast cancer, domestic violence, choosing to become a single-parent, age difference in dating relationships, stay-at-home versus a working mother, body image and the obsession to remain youthful-looking.
All the issues are very well handled. The telenovela is very realistic.
After watching MIRADA DE MUJER, look for the telenovela, LA VIDA EN ESPEJO, which shows what a man goes through in the similar sort of circumstances. These are two very good novelas.
