Brazil's greatest telenovela!!
22 August 2000 | by chris_conkling-2See all my reviews

I saw this when I lived in Brazil back in 1990.

It has some of the most incredible nature photography I've ever seen. The soundtrack was gorgeous, and it actually had an interesting storyline.

At the time it was widely acclaimed as the most dynamic telenovela ever on Brazilian TV. Probably an accurate assessment.
