First part is way better than the second
4 September 2013 | by (Croatia) – See all my reviews

This is the first telenovela I saw as a kid, I was 8 back then. It's one of the reason I saw so many of them afterwords. I saw it again years later and I have some things to add. Seeing I'm the first reviewer here on IMDb, I have even bigger responsibility towards future viewers.

The series is a classic, that is undeniable. Audience who is familiar with telenovelas of the 90s know that Marisol enters top 10 most memorable and iconic ones easily. But the question remains, is it any good? To answer that question, I have to define the series origin. The first part is original, while second part of telenovela is adaptation of radionovela ''When you give up a child'' mixed with ''The rich also cry'' storyline.

I have to say that the first part is *way* better and more memorable than the second. It is one show that should have ended earlier. It evolves around young florist Marisol who is actually rich man's illegitimate granddaughter and she falls in love with his adopted grandson, while his mother, wife and several others are against it. Storyline is bit generic, but interesting enough and engaging. Main couple are Erika Buenfil and Eduardo Santamaria, accompanied by Claudia Islas, Aaron Hernan, now late Enrique Alvarez Felix and now missing Emma Laura.

Despite it's issues of rushed editing and bad sound mixing (which is the bad side of most 90's and early 2000s telenovelas), and some cheesy unbelievable subplots, I find the first part a classic and even love character development. As a standalone telenovela, for it's worth, I'd give it an 8, almost a 9.

Second part is more dull, unnecessary prolonging the story with more uninteresting characters, clichés love triangles and stuff. It even diminishes the influence of surviving supporting characters, including the previous main villain Sofia. She is nothing more than an irrelevant lunatic who commits suicide without special impact.

As a standalone series, I'd give this part a 4 or 5. It's not terrible, but nothing special in here. However, I did like the recapitulation they made in the last episode mentioned characters they have killed off. Felix's role importance has been however highly exaggerated since he has died in real life as well.

If you like telenovelas as a genre, and don't mind love and hate plots, give this one a shot. I still wouldn't blame you if you shut in down at half.
