Brazilian Soap Operas have always had international fame and I am proud of it. I have my list favorites "A gata comeu"(1985), "Brega & Chique" (1987), "Direito de Amar" (1987). However, the soap operas aren't so good as it used to be.
I had given up on watching soap operas when I started to watch "O Cravo e a Rosa". It's a very good entertainment, very soft and sweet. Specially the relationship between Petruchio and Catarina. It's basically a romantic comedy with all the charm and softness of it.
The fact that it's on the beginning of the century only makes it more special, we can be transported to another time with wonderful characters and a pleasant plot. Now I can be proud of our soap operas production again.
