Still Waters Can Be Dangerous -- a very good story!
5 January 2003 | by FafaSaysSee all my reviews

LAS AGUAS MANSAS (Still Waters) is another story of revenge that goes wrong, and the viewers are left to find out whether the lives of the characters will ever return to normal again. It is also the story of redemption and love.

When close brothers (Oscar, Juan and Franco) find their sister's body floating in a still portion of the river, they are shocked, hurt, and puzzled. Later, they discover that their sister had an affair with a married man and became pregnant. When her lover died, his wife humiliated the young girl. Distraught, ashamed and thinking that she had nowhere else to turn, the girl committed suicide.

The brothers vow revenge on the wife and the rest of her family. During their plan, the brothers become more entangled with their intended victims than they intend. Their plan for revenge goes out of their control.

The storyline, setting, costumes and social styles take place in Colombia in the 1940s. It is fascinating to watch. The actors give a solid performance in their roles. Each character is different and grows throughout the story. There are many mysteries in this Colombian novela; and it will keep you guessing as to what will happen next. If you like a good mystery story, you'll definitely enjoy this novela.
