dimmed memory
22 May 2006 | by clever-7See all my reviews

OK since I'm obligated to write in English I'll have to do it although this review is worth a penny to non-Latin people.

I can't remember very well the drama of this soap opera. I was around the same age as Ludwika and Gael. The truth is that I only started watching it cause I liked Ludwika's performance in Carrusel as Maria Juaquina and because I liked Mexican television at that time... Well and in reality Mexico is one of the top soap opera makers.

I think the chemistry that existed between the two actors (Alejandra y Daniel) was magnificent, and the story very cute between the two children and his grandfather. I also remember that this program gave Ludwika an air of good girl after that roll she had in Carrusel. Reputation of good girl that didn't last too long since almost all rolls she's had have been of bad girl (yeah, add rich girl there also) or similar, but you have to admit that she does it very well!
