Luz Maria is the best series ever made on TV
9 July 2011 | by llmariareginaSee all my reviews

I saw for the first time Luz Maria last week and I was so touched by the grandiose unrelenting love and affection of Gustavo to Lucecita which these modern days it is very hard to find. The scenes are clean,wholesome,uncorrupted unlike most Hollywood soaps and movies which are tainted with obscenity and immorality.The dialogue between the Franciscan priest Emilio and Gustavo is very enlightening pertaining to the sanctity of marriage.Kodus to the director and all of the production crew for making this beautiful telenovela.But most of all kodus to Christian Meier for a superb acting in his role Gustavo,a very handsome ,very romantic haciendero and it due to him that made the love story very touching.It must have been difficult for him being married to Marisol to act in passionate manner towards Angie who was single woman .I want to buy complete DVD with English subs but I don't know where.
