lubbed it
27 September 2004 | by popularetteSee all my reviews

I was captivated by this soap. ADDICTED. it really was amazing, although mariana ximenes(as much as i love her) tired out the 'felizes' and the heartbroken role. I don't know how many times i cried over the Guillherme/Celina/Graca story..... Magic. this is the soap opera that made me fall in love with brazillian soaps... very good. and a nice happy ending.. although a very tearful ending... and I'm not THAT emotional.... very good piece of work... downfall however was some of the special effects... such as 'Aninha' seeing ludovic.... the echo on his voice made it almost impossible for me, a non-brazillian speaking person, to understand. and also, the rays of light were almost too cheesy..
