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 "Da Cor do Pecado" twice, the first when it debuted in Portugal around 2004, and the second was about a year ago when it was reprised.
The plot focuses on the amorous triangle formed around Paco Lambertini, the heir of a great fortune led by his lonely father, Afonso. He was engaged to the calculating and ambitious Barbara when, on a trip to Northeast Brazil, he met and fell in love with Preta, a poor but honest girl. The soap opera is fairly regular, satisfying but without bringing anything new or different. Taís Araújo was excellent in the main character, along with Reynaldo Gianecchini. Giovanna Antonelli was a regular villain. Still worthy of mention are the appearances of Rosi Campos, Lima Duarte and Aracy Balabanian.
