The meeting of a man with his image 20 years younger. This is the plot of O Clone. In the beggining of the story Lucas is a happy adolescent, romantic, full of projects, and he's in love with a young arabic girl: Jade. But life didn't run well for him: he separates with Jade and, during the twenty years that have passed during the novel, he's not the same thing physically, his projects are lost by the way, he has no more the tenderness, the romantic atmosphere, and the poetry of before. He's now dry by inside. Jade, in the other side, lived all this time imagining that her life would be much happier if she had married him. Twenty years later they meet again.

I love this series, is best for television that has been done in latinomarica, simple as that. The performances are perfect, credible, too real, especially highlighting the actors Murilo Benicio (Lucas / Leo / Diogo), Giovanna Antonelli (Jade) and Débora Falabella (Mel), among others.
The music is perfect, the songs in Spanish and Arabic very well selected, the scenery is spectacular, the shots are majestic, the issues it addresses as the clash of cultures and drug problems were well tackled.
In conclusion, it was worth seeing the 250 chapters, indeed, when repeated on television here in Chile saw her again complete.
My vote: 10 star.
