Dias Gomes' first masterpiece. The Citizen Kane of soap operas.
19 January 2007 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

20 stars wouldn't be enough to rate this piece of work which is much more than just a soap opera. Written by late and acclaimed theater drama writer Dias Gomes, the plot, full of his usual political criticism, is about Odorico Paraguaçu, a very corrupted mayor in the small town of Sucupira, who tries, in vain, open the city cemetery for the public. Odorico attempts to get political revenue with such a "great" monument. Meanwhile, he, the well beloved himself, has a triple affair with the Cajazeira sisters, three old maids who pretend to be straight to rest of the citizens. The other protagonist is Zeca Diabo, an ex-cangaceiro, Lampião-like bandit, who returns to his home town to redeem himself from all the sins and crimes of the past.

For a long length series, O Bem Amado had a very agile, fast, action-packed script. There were almost no stops. Regis Cardoso's direction was really superb. The cast, led by late Paulo Gracindo (Odorico) and Lima Duarte (Zeca Diabo), was really all-star. I tell foreigners would think this series to be at least, intriguing. Specially because it has been made during the worst years of the 1964-85 Brazilian military dictatorship. It even has its own view on the Watergate scandal, that makes Zeca Diabo mad with Odorico...I'm not spoiling everything.

As various Globo TV soap operas, The Well Beloved has been exported to many countries all over the world, and I assume it has also been a major hit like the excellent A Escrava Isaura.
