A different kind of Soap Opera
6 March 2001 | by (New York/Mexico City) – See all my reviews

This is probably the best accomplished "historic" Soap-Opera produced in Mexico. As close to Roots as possible, it is historic because it goes along some key developments in late 19th- early 20th Century Mexican history, trying to relate those facts in the lives of both historical figures and fictional characters who provide the Soap-Opera approach with the standard romantic plots of this kind of productions.

Although the approach and premises of the series were contested in some academic circles in Mexico, the production as well as the script are good enough to provide a fair perspective of how Mexico was in the years considered, but especially of why the country came to be what it is now.
