Trivia

Manoel Carlos reportedly gave the character of Hilda (Maria Padilha) the breast cancer storyline because she was "the face of happiness. Lessons only work when something bad hits someone who is happy. You can expect anything to those who are unhappy." See more »

Boring
8 December 2017 | by filipemanuelnetoSee all my reviews

For those who enjoy a soap opera, Brazil is fertile ground, as the overwhelming majority of general TV channels in the country transmit, on average, four soap operas daily. Invariably, much of this material eventually goes around the world, being bought and broadcast in other countries. One of the most permeable markets for Brazilian teledramaturgy is, of course, my country, due to its cultural and linguistic proximity. I watched "Mulheres Apaixonadas" only twice: firstly in its premiere in Portugal, later when it was reprised, around 2016.

The plot consists of several women living in several romances. The main one is lived by a woman, recently divorced, who falls in love with an old boyfriend whom she had left to get married. It is a case to say that she only valued him many years overdue. The plot is not improbable, this happens often, but it is something so banal that makes soap operate quite annoying, at least for me. Another pearl of Manoel Carlos's uncreative mind, which has the particular craze of calling "Helena" to almost all the female heroines of the soap operas he writes. And yes, you can believe that there is a rich doctor playing a determining role in the plot, as it happens a lot in this writer's novels.
