Very good combination of action, powerful drama and music
The story is different from what we are used to be told. As chapters go by the story keeps turning to different ways which keeps you engaged and "picado" (in spanish). I haven't read the book but I have heard opposing comments from people who have read it. Most of them say it is an amazing adaptation and is as good as the book since it has the same quotes and the characters were carefully chosen, like "el jardinerito". Others mention they imagined Violetta as a more beautiful actress like Barbara Mori (who is not even mexican) rather than showing good looking girl that can be from a mexican middle class. I think the actress Paulina Gaitan and the other actors do a great job. I liked the fact they were not very well known (except for Pedro Alonso) because it makes the story more credible and unexpected.
