Everyone in this telenovela played their part. Edith Gonzalez and Guy Ecker are perfectly matched. Sebastian Ligarde once again proves that he is the best whenever you need someone to play an extremely despicable and sleazy villain. Maria Rubio, Aaron Hernan and Patricia Reyes Spindola all turn in memorable performances. And even Niurka delivers an outstanding performance; her "reunion" scene with Gonzalez is undoubtedly one of the most heart breaking ever made for a telenovela. However, I only had one reason for watching this series, and her name is Yuliana Peniche (No relation to leading man, Arturo Peniche.)
As Ramona, aka Money, Peniche turns in a delightful performance. Like Yazawa Shin's Sumika in the Japanese drama "Oyaji," Money is the comic relief character that manages to steal every scene she is in. Throughout the second half of the series (Peniche doesn't appear until the second half of the story), Peniche's Money dons various costumes as she impersonates various figures: Joan of Arc, a charro (mustache included), Little Red Riding Hood, the Statue of Justice (blindfold included), Esmeralda from the "Hunch Back of Notre Dame," and Cleopatra. (WARNING: her "yellow face" makeup when she impersonates a Chinese woman will offend many as grossly racist.) Although this might be an exaggeration on my part, this role might very well be the break through performance of this up and coming actress. Hopefully, we will all see more of Yulian Peniche in the very near future. Her acting in this drama was memorable.
