This telenovela is worth watching because the plot is not the usual poor girl meets rich girl to fall in love only to find a 100 obstacles in their way to happiness. Plus the main protagonists are middle aged instead of being young. The writers used the good element of juxtaposition by comparing the love triangle between Macarena, Cristobal and Carlota with that of Paloma, Emiliano & Romina. The opening credits show creativity by bringing a Gothic feel to the telenovela. However the bad side to this telenovela is that, as it has become the characteristic of Televisa in the past 5 years it is a remake of Cadenas de Amargura, which shows that they are running out of new story lines (see how Corazon Salvaje IV was an utter disaster!!!) The number of characters being killed by Carlota in the novela is just too much, and it becomes a major put-off to anyone watching it. But the acting is far much better compared to Sortilegio which in itself was another horrible disaster!! For her first role as a villana, Leticia Calderon has given a memorable performance as the demonic Carlota.
