One of the best telenovelas....A Classic....
12 March 2007 | by jcurmelifeSee all my reviews

It took Fernand Gaitan and the charisma of the protagonists Margarita Rosa De Francisco and Guy Ecker to elevate this simple story of a poor girl who falls in love with an handsome rich landowner to an ode to PASSION and LOVE. They brought the level of Latin soap operas to a standard unsurpassed. Thanks to the talent and gifts of the writer, actors and casts, you will be riveted in the drama, suspense, intrigue of this love affair between ONE MAN and ONE WOMAN. Sebastian: "She was born for me, I can love no other". Other gifts added is the beautiful songs sang by both Margarita and Guy, the beautiful views of the country of Colombia and the process of the making of coffee. After 12 years this Latin TV series is still drawing admirers around the world. Let this series enchant you in the culture, beautiful people, and lovely traditions of a country known for other negative stereotypes. This dramatic love story brings a new meaning to the classic phrase: "And they lived happy ever after". Now they even talk of an American copy to come. Same for Yo Soy Betty La Fea from the same author Fernand Gaitan now remade as Ugly Betty on ABC. This same story will be remade also for American viewers, let's hope they keep the coffee theme and bring Margarita and Guy to elevate again this love story. Cheers.
