Doubtless, one of the best brazilian soap operas ever made
22 August 2003 | by lessinkiSee all my reviews

"O Cravo e a Rosa" (The Thorn and the Rose) became one of the best soap operas ever made in a very short time. Record between 2000-2001, this "novela" was one of the bests. Adriana Esteves was marvelous as Catarina, like the whole cast were in their respectives. As Ney Latorraca said (the actor who played Cornélio Valente): "it was the right work in the right time. There was no particular success. The whole cast shined." And he didn't knew how he'd be right.
