Excellent production
31 July 2010 | by huasmarlightSee all my reviews

By accident we started to watch Paginas de la Vida and since then we can't stop watching it. The beauty of the landscaping in Brazil is breath taken, the warmth of the people, the well reflected cultural environment, the variety of current situations happening in our countries and in our lives in general, the exquisite music and the very unique and different way the author created it. Brazilian soap-operas have always been perceived to be unique, spontaneous and in many ways a celebration of who we are as individual… without barriers! Congratulations on a well done soap-opera. We'll continue to watch it, having our coffee before going to work!! Thank You for sharing the beauty of your country and people with the rest of the world!
