I admit I’m behind on this one. Some of that is attributed to my schedule and some is because I lost interest. I had expected this one to be great because Sebastián Rulli and Angelique Boyer are in it, but it has just been okay.
Let’s start with one of the more annoying aspects — the Santiago/Marcelo storyline. Is he Santiago? Is he Marcelo? It depends on the hour. His personality changes constantly. When he’s Marcelo, he’s as evil as any villain I’ve seen on a novela and can give Ana Leticia a run for her money. Actually, I can see how they ended up together.
One of my favorite scenes so far is when Marcelo and Ana Leticia are in a restaurant and they recount all of the things they hate about each other. This is after Ana Leticia discovers Marcelo’s mistress is her sister, Ana Lucia. I don’t think the writers meant for it to be funny, but I laughed through the entire scene.
The back and forth between Santiago and Marcelo, however, is tiresome. I thought the accident caused multiple personality disorder, which might have made the story a little more interesting, but it didn’t. After passing out in his room, he goes to the hospital where the doctors discover he has a brain tumor and that has been causing all of the craziness. He has to have the tumor removed, but he’s afraid that Marcelo will return permanently if he does. Of course, if he does nothing, the doctors say he has six months.
Because I’m behind, I’m not sure whether he has the surgery and which personality survives, but I’m rooting for Marcelo. He’s much more interesting than all of the crying we get from him and Ana Lucia.
Yes, Ana Lucia is still crying. I think she was much happier before Santaigo entered her life. In fact, all of the sisters are crying for all of the reasons I previously wrote about in Tres Veces Ana: Will the tears ever stop?
I thought as the novela went on the tears would stop, but they haven’t. I’m convinced Angelique Boyer either has a bag of onions nearby to help her cry or she’s just that great an actress, which could be the case because she does a fantastic job of pulling off the three different personalities of the sisters, despite all of the crying.
