La Otra...One of the few ...
1 November 2005 | by See all my reviews

..really outstanding Telenovelas..and one that parallels the best Alfred Hitchcock movies..Particularly "Vertigo"....A relatively short Novela(the best usually are)..It packs incredible suspense.loaded with atmosphere..and contains one of the most beautifully innovated and evocative music scores of all time,for any medium TV or Film!!....All the Actors seem to be working on a higher level here..Everyone is great in this..Yadhira Carrillo is brilliant in her first starring Role playing two characters!..Shes not only extraordinarily beautiful ..but there's real depth to her characters.Likewise the direction and writing are superb.This one grabs hold of your attention and never lets go from day 1..I'm currently watching it for the second time..and its even better than before...The other Novelas just don't look as good after watching an episode of La Otra....I cannot say enough good things about this one!!!....Christopher
