Eh...
16 September 2005 | by ilikechickentacosSee all my reviews

The show is pretty formulaic and over-the-top. But heck, you could say that about MOST Latin American soap operas. I will admit that it does break the mold in several ways, and I do know from first-hand experience that it really resonated with the Chilean public (at least in Santiago, where I was living).

Among various 'telenovela' stereotypes, the strongest one is the fact that the family is obscenely rich. I never understood why a Chilean living in a hovel in La Pintana would care so much about people who lived, even by U.S. standards, in an extremely opulent palatial home. The problems are largely superficial and cookie-cutter. Just like any other telenovela you'll find in Latin America, there's music pirated from U.S. movies, extreme close-ups, and overly dramatic, theatrical acting that doesn't suit television.

I do believe that Chile will be the first to break the Latin-American teleseries mold.
