It was the most popular program in the history of Polish television and at the same time first telenovela (Latin American soap opera) screened in Poland (1986). On average it was watched by more than 81 percent of the total viewing audience (sometimes as much as 92 percent). See more »
a beautiful series. exotic, romantic, naive. and the inspired introduction to the history and culture of Brasil. because it has the gift to be more than a soap opera. its refined poetry, its clash between a young woman and a terrible master, its delicate manner to remind emotions and songs and ways to live and love and hope are great. real great. the sounds from the film, the sparkles of scenes, after decades, are fresh. not only for its status of the first soap opera on the Romanian TV screens after 1989 but for its strange and seductive force to be unique. so, a special series and one of the lovely examples of Brazilian cinematography.
