Martin offers her a job and with this the problems start. because while Monita is trying to keep secret her boxing and her boyfriend from Martin, he is trying to convince his girlfriend that there is nothing going on between him and Monita. but what they cannot keep secret is their growing affection for each other. Written by
the storyline is quite traditional. the rich boy with a well hidden heartache meets poor but goodhearted girl. but here is where the tradition stops. because Martin is prince charming in person and though Monita has heart bigger then Argentina she goes through life fighting - mostly in boxing ring.
here is what makes this story so special to me. it has very well portioned humor in it present in every episode though it is also dealing with serious problems. the writers are geniuses. it has incredibly well written, casted and portrayed characters. starting with mischievous Marcelo Mazzarello, slightly hysteric Alejandro Awada, pleasantly unpleasant Carlos Belloso, continuing with arrogant Carla Petersn, theatrical Claudia Fontan, lovably confused Griselda Siciliani, always helpful though slightly crazy Fabiana Garcia Lago and Monica Ayos and finishing with adorable teen cast of Elias Viñoles, Ines Palombo, Nicholas D'Agostino and Telma Fardin. though the best one is definitely Ornella Fazio - the girl is a natural. it has the very best opening credits I have ever seen. the music is chosen appropriately to the mood of the situation and is so forming quite important part of the story.
and then there is the main reason why is this novela so irresistible. and the reason are Facundo Arana and Natalia Oreiro. you can see that the characters are written for them and the story is using to the fullest the incredible chemistry of this couple. they are friends. they are passionate. they desire each other. they are falling in love with each other. they try to fight against these feelings. and you are right there with them feeling every single heartbeat.
I have been expecting a lot from this novela and I got more. so much more.
