Incredible series!
1 March 2017 | by kermitmedskerSee all my reviews

This story is about a person of whom I was not aware until watching it. After viewing, I read several articles on Juana Ines de la Cruz. The details of her life and her relations with those around her are somewhat obscure. Her life seems to still inspire speculation and fabrication of events that may not have happened. However, knowing something of the Roman Church and Spanish Inquisition, and having some understanding of classical learning in the Baroque era, I believe this to be an entirely credible construct of her life, providing some good possibilities for the motivations behind her actions. Now, if you are the type of moralistic Catholic who cannot believe that there are lesbians in convents, or that certain holy monastics have the same urges as others, don't bother watching this one. It is neither like The Song of Bernadette, nor like the splendid Spanish series on the life of Teresa of Avila. The production qualities are sometimes not the best, and I have never much cared for the use of two actresses to play the same character at different ages, but the sheer drama of the story redeems it. The intense psychological aspects of the characters, and the performances of these actors merit the highest praise. The subject matter is so compelling that you cannot stop watching it, and yet it doesn't lend itself to binge watching, because you will need time to absorb what you have just seen in a single episode.
