Story transcends Border and culture
2 May 2017 | by billtang79See all my reviews

I watched Cable Girls and found it riveting and fascinating. Having the settings of 1920's Madrid allows the actors and set pieces to have lavish costumes and lush surroundings. The story, even though is set in Spain is about goals and aspiration, stories that transcends borders and culture.

So even for a person like me, watching in an Asian country, Singapore, can understand and sympathize the drives and motivations of the actors in Cable Girls.

I am not familiar with Spanish TV and if the production value and acting talent in this series already got me hooked, then I will gladly give Netflix more of my money to watch more Spanish original production to be shown to Asian viewers.
