one of the best soap operas ever made
28 May 2005 | by goncalovaz-1See all my reviews

I have seen it and I also loved it. It has all the plot lines that make this gender so appealing to the public: romance, drama, mystery, etc. It has an intense rhythm and a lot of surprises and turn overs in the plot. It this one of the best soap operas ever made in Brasil. It's an x-ray and a portrait of the Brazilian way of life. The rich that want to be richer, the poor that want to be a little bit rich. Everything is in there, in a well constructed narrative with brilliant characters. Well done for the writers. 15 years after it continues to be a masterpiece. It's talkatively, certainly Gilberto Braga's best work. It's one of the highest success in Brazilian TV history.
