One of the best TV Brazillian series. I don't consider it a "soap opera" as we understand it. Brazillian soap operas were exceptional TV series not compare with any soap opera in Latin America. Everything was good: script, direction, performances, photography, MUSIC!!!! I' d like to get it in DVD or VHS formats, because I know I would enjoy again to watch it. I live in the U.S. and I think it is so sad that Americans don't have access to Brazillian production. I' d like to get recommendations about new Brazillian series and movies. I am sure that they continue producing quality TV series. If you have the opportunity to watch it , don't hesitate to do it.
