Gorgeous bit of escapism
27 July 2015 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

This soap took me by surprise - after a couple of episodes, I found myself addicted. It all works extremely well - the music, the cars, the frocks, the macho men, the swooning girls - just gorgeous. Not meant to be realistic (I'm sure), it transports you back to a fantasy world of the 50/60s long left behind today where pragmatism and technology rule.

The two central characters, in my view, were eclipsed by the stories focusing on the secondary ones - Rita, Patricia, Pedro, Luisa, Dona Blanca, Max, Mateo...all wonderfully fleshed out. Ana became lacklustre after a while, Alberto a dithering wimp. Cristina stood out as a guileless, devoted but fun-filled charmer who was exploited by both of them.

The main characters though were the clothes - luscious dresses, nipped-in waists, high heels and elegant suits - oh, and the cars. Tremendously enjoyable - I wish there were lots more seasons! :-)
