A well written series, great proposal.
10 February 2017 | by jero-9See all my reviews

I was amazed when I watched this series on Netflix this week. I really didn't know what to expect and was met with an impeccable production, script and editing. Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz is a literary figure of the 17th century and an icon of Mexican Culture but, ironically enough, very little is known of her. And yes, the story-telling does take some liberties with this but to enrich the narrative build, not for shock value. At least I didn't think so. After all, a character as strong as her surely wasn't bland or dull. Her rebellion, for example, is very likely as it is known from letters written by her that she did have a quarrel with her confessor, something unthinkable at the time. Why is is so outrageous then that a figure as her, or nuns at all, had a sexual orientation of any kind? I recommend this series for it's narrative proposal which is both constructive and daring. WARNING: Not suitable for history buffs who want a narrated documentary with "reenactments for dramatic purposes". After all, it's just good TV.
