"Pasion de Gavilanes"(Passion of hawks) has been one of the the most famous and adored telenovelas in the world recently.Millions of people all over the world enjoyed it.Many of them don't like the so called telenovelas but they fell in love with this one.Lots of trashy soap operas annoy the audience so "Pasion de Gavilanes" was a real present for romantic people who don't want to watch banal and slushy films.Because this one is neither banal nor slushy.And there are a few reasons.
1)First of all-the plot.Many telenovelas have very clichéd scenarios about a poor but very sweet girl who falls in love with a handsome,wealthy man.But here the things are different.The plot is interesting and surprising with a lots of action and suspense.
2)The characters-in "Pasion de Gavilanes" each character has their own personality and charm.In most telenovelas characters are either perfect or very,very bad.In "Pasion de Gavilanes" there are no such implausible heroes.Each character has both good and bad qualities -there are no ideal persons or monsters.Each of the characters develops and changes throughout the episodes.
3)There is plenty of humor in every episode,lots of comic scenes and funny characters.
4)The music score is great-a lot of nice songs which make the atmosphere pleasant.There is a CD with the songs available on Amazon.
5)Well, the actors are great-both the protagonists and the supporting characters are played by very nice actors-the three sisters are really beautiful-the stunning Paola Rey,the charming and very talented Natasha Klauss and the tender Danna Garcia.Mario Cimarro,Michell Brown and Juan Alphonso Baptista are very good as well.Impressive performance by Lorena Meritano as well-she plays the cruel Dinorah with a style.
So, "Pasion de Gavilanes" is passionate and erotic in a way-but it is also very romantic and touching as love itself...
