First soap-opera aired in living colors in Brazil. An unforgettable masterpiece from Dias Gomes.
10 February 2002 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

O Bem Amado is one of the most amazing soap-operas aired in Brazilian TV. Not only for the quality of Dias Gomes' genius story, but also because it was the first soap-opera presented in living color in Brazil. A masterpiece that, unfortunately, is not re-runned since 1979 (it's a 1972/73 production).

It tells the story of Odorico Paraguassú, the mayor of the Brazilian country-sided city of Sucupira, located at Bahia and his ultimated aim to inaugurate the city's cemetery, since until that time all sucupirians had to be interred in other cities. Due to some unusual reason, no inhabitant of Sucupira died since the cemetery was built by the mayor Paraguassú. The Mayor, in an act of despair, decided to hire a renowned professional killer (known as Zeca Diabo) for that he killed someone and finally the cemetery would be inaugurated with pomp and circumstance.

All the story line rotates around the villainies and tricks of the corrupt Odorico Paraguassú and his obsession in inaugurate the cemetery. The author, Dias Gomes, does in this way, a biting criticism to the Brazilian's politics and politicians since Brazil lived the boom of the military dictatorship that was establish in 1964 . At the end of the story, the cemetery is finally inaugurated... by the own mayor, that ends up being dead by the own Zeca Diabo, when he is informed about the mayor's ambush to incriminate him.

A wonderful and unforgettable soap-opera.
