An excellent villain who made all the soap opera work better.
9 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 "Celebridade" twice: the first was around 2004, and the second was about six years ago, when it was reprized.

The story is very good and revolves around Maria Clara, who works in the world of fame and music as organizer of shows and musical events. She has the world at her feet when Laura appears, a young woman who becomes her assistant and friend but who is secretly determined to destroy her and take revenge on her. I confess that I followed the soap opera with great attention and I loved the plot. Without boring dead moments in the majority, it counts on the participation, truly remarkable, of Cláudia Abreu, that offered us with one of the best villains of soap opera that I have already seen. Malu Mader also satisfied me in the role of the young lady, but was really the excellent villain that made the story all the more appealing. We wanted to see it destroyed and pay for its mistakes, and that's very nice.
