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. Jade gets upset, trying to find, in the forty years old Lucas, what is left from the person she once fell in love with.

something good about, as told by a soap-opera's anti-fan
I have always hated south-american soap-operas, but this show is better than Dallas. It has an interesting subject, good actors, absolutely gorgeous scenes, and the music... Ah! the music ! Is the best ! It' also nice to see Islamic people presented as human, and not as "terrorist beasts".
The only thing that bothers me is that the show has so many episodes, and I foresee that many more will follow (at his date - Dec '02 - we are watching the episodes where Xande is falsely accused by Maysa of steeling her necklace). I started watching it because at that hour (10 PM, daily) there is nothing else to see on the Romanian TV stations (except for the third re-run of "Married, with Children" and some horrible news about murders an rapes). It's pleasant detachment, before going to sleep, of all the stress accumulated during the day. P.S. In Romania, the show has 10 - 11 % rating.
