A pinch of latin soap operas but within a more limited number os episodes. Although Dark Desire does imply a sexual and mysterious plot, it does fail on delivering a key point for both of the aspects.
On one hand, there's a hyper sexualized storyline which leads to most of the actions and reactions of the show. Yet, beyond unnecessary at times, the relations in between the characters does fail to be reasonable and coherent, due to the lack of character development throughout the episodes.
Still, on the other, the newest Mexican production of Netflix does deliver a rather enjoyable show when approaching the dark past of the characters, plus untied ends of their stories.
I do admit that the show could've been better presented in a shorter version rather than the whole eighteen-episode storyline, which could've been optimized and still kept the puzzling happenstances on the story. However, they fill up the scenes with excessive flashbacks and imaginary but conceptual long parts that could've been better used as forms to improve the personas on the production. In other words, a Mexican short soap opera that doesn't leave out the usual drama aside.
In conclusion, the photography, monologues and ending plot twists don't fail if you're looking for a good mystery to watch, but I wouldn't expect an extremely well thought and built story to leave a mark on your 2020 watch list.
