Set in Acapulco, the love story of Marina, a beautiful, sweet young woman who works as a tourist boat driver. Her simple life transforms when her mother dies unexpectedly and she inherits a large family fortune.
The cover was more than intriguing with this one. Unfortunately it almost was the only thing that was intriguing about the movie. Don't get me wrong, Elizabeth Cervantes is more than just beautiful. But I am not able to judge her acting by this movie alone. I shouldn't at least because this feels like TV movie. And while it is one, there have been instances where people actually made good things for TV.
Just because it is for TV, it doesn't mean it skips on nudity. Quite the opposite. But if you are looking for titillating scenes, you will get a cold shower most of the time. Sometimes it felt like it was edited badly, such was the cutting of the "erotic scenes". Whatever the case, the acting is bad, the story is more than predictable and even a hint of self deprecation (Telenovela acting is the reference) does not help elevate this to any heights.
