The (spoilt) rich cry too aka Family is everything
One of the mentioned aboved could be the subheading of this series, but of course, as we do here with versatile and competent work, the number of "undercurrents" is far more bigger. The thrill and excitement are there and generally maintained (well, the episodes could have been sometimes shorter), and it is catchy to follow how things get intertwined, and you begin to ponder on and over how you would respond to so various events and matters. Its solid script does not let the characters to divide into "the good" and "the bad", and even youngsters are drawn in hypocritical solutions of adults. The ending is realistic as well, different from e.g. US series.
The cast is even as well; as I have not seen too many Spanish films or series, all performers were new to me. Here, female performances tend to be more vigourous and versatile, particularly Blanca Portillo as Alicia Castro and Aida Folch as Eva Durán.
As the pre-amnesia episodes were a bit tardy and thus less interesting, so "only" 8 points from me. But anyway, a good series, recommended to those wishing to "move beyond" UK/Nordic approaches and values.
