La Madrastra review
14 September 2005 | by (Puerto Rico) – See all my reviews

Well i'm seen right now this wonderful soap here in Puerto Rico and i should say it's fantastic the way the have handled the mystery of the assassin of Patricia.Plus the soap it's well written even though the first 2 weeks was very slow but after it quickly get more and more interesting and in every episode you get know secrets of each character.The cast is really good especially Ana Layevska(Estrella),Eduardo Capetillo(Leonel) and the little kids that appear in this program.Victoria Ruffo(María) here cries a lot but she stills gives a great performance as well as Cesar Evora(Esteban).The villains is a mixed bag,we have great villains like Jacqueline Andere(Alba)and most of the women here but at the same time we have Rene Casados with his cartoon villain and the bad actor Sergio Mayer.All in all this is really a soap worth seeing.
