Great stuff
16 September 2006 | by xmansonSee all my reviews

A great soap from Manoel Carlos.

Great cast, story, sets and all that.

The opening is one my favorites, using a wonderful songs and pictures from the life of Regina Duarte and Gabriela Duarte (mother and daughter in real life and in the soap).

The biggest compliment goes to Suzana Vieira, perfect in her portrayal of Branca, the main "villain" in the story and and amazing character overall. Had some great one-liners, always ready to offend anyone she wanted.

Since this kind of material is never re-releases, there's a good chance that those who missed will never have the opportunity to check it. Too bad, But if you do, trust me, you won't regret it. At least try to find some of Branca's scenes.
