Storyline

In the village of San Andres, the rivalry between two families the Valdes and the Ramirez is centered on "El Manantial", a beautiful fountain of water that happens to bathe the small property of the Valdes and not the neighboring ranch, the rich and prosperous hacienda "Piedras Grandes", where the best cattle are raised and is property of the Ramirez. But the spring is not the real reason for the hatred between the families. Justo Ramirez, married to Margarita Insunza, had a relationship with Francisca Rivero, wife of his enemy and neighbor Rigoberto Valdes. This relationship, founded in the betrayal, will cause the utmost bitterness and the destruction between the two families. The Valdes have a beautiful daughter named Alfonsina, who was born in the same year as Alejandro, the son and heir of the Ramirez. Although they have grown separately with their souls full of prejudices against their respective families, the two cannot avoid feeling attracted to each other. Margarita will not ...

It's been done before
9 May 2007 | by JoshieboyuclaSee all my reviews

This is a complete rehash of CANAVERAL DE PASIONES...from the plot line to most of the characters... Canaveral is a much greater novela with better acting, scenery, direction and dialogue... How can this novela be out on DVD, but classics like CANAVERAL be kept hidden away...? Why is it that they release all the awful novelas on DVD and keep the true gems from the public?

El Manantial had some interesting scenes and most of those were from the original, Canaveral... there's something about it that I don't like... maybe because i've seen the TRUE ORIGINAL and this cheap version doesn't do anything for me...
