Beautiful, relatable and excellently made.
I decided to watch A Walk in the Clouds, one of my favorite films of all time, as it was years ago since I have last seen it. The mom was so familiar, I know I have seen her before, but I couldn't remember where. Then it hit me, I saw her at Mirada de Mujer!
I loved Mirada de Mujer. My mom and I used to watch it together. It was something that women could bond over together. Sometimes, when my dad's not watching something else, he'll join in.
I'm amazed at how the dialogues were so raw and so real. What they say in certain situations are what people would say in real life. The dialogues weren't 'screened' or sugarcoated. They were raw and they made the viewing experience so beautiful. I wish they'd rerun the whole series again. The situations the characters were subjected to are true to what happens in real time. It was released in 1997, but it was only shown in our country a few years ago. And yet, everything was still very kindred to the family and society's present realities.
Mirada de Mujer is must-see. It's just right to give it a 10, nothing in this world's perfect, but this novela is definitely a cut above the rest. Don't be surprised if you find yourself shaking your fist at the screen, reacting and giving your two cents as to what a character should do, or wanting to see the next installment at the soonest possible time.. I promise, it'll get a reaction out of you. It's that good and different from all the crap (sorry) on TV today.
