the show that started the soap opera trend on philippine primetime
Villa Quintana actually started the trend of soaps on Philippine primetime. It was pitted against TV Patrol and it toppled the longest running newscast on the land as far as ratings is concerned. The rival show was alarmed, thus to compete with Villa Quintana, they transferred their longest running afternoon drama "Mara Clara" to primetime. In fact, a movie version was planned by Viva Films, however, it didn't push through.
Villa Quintana is a tragic love story that captivated the hearts of the Filipinos. Lynette is a rich girl while Isagani is a poor boy. They met, fell in love. However, Lynette's parents would not favor their relationship because Isagani is poor. They will do everything so that they would not fall into each others arms. It was tragic because, at the end, the two committed suicide.
This was Donna Cruz's first primetime soap opera. Her tandem with Kempee de Leon is a hit that it had spunned into several box office movies.
The soundtrack of "Free Willy" was used in the movie and it added more love and life to the scenes of Isagani and Lynette. Also, Donna Cruz's songs from her album were used in the series.
