Storyline

A terrible tragedy puts an end to a group of friends' pleasure voyage. Maria hears a gunshot, and finds her friend Patricia dead, and, within her confusion, she picks up the gun.

The major conflicts make it attractive...
12 January 2006 | by luralakesSee all my reviews

In Albania, we are now watching the 70th part of the serial "La Madrastra" and although the movie is half away from the end, the major conflicts or themes seem to be largely unresolved. Of course, this is something that keeps everybody watching it on, but overall, I believe it is a very naive scenario. Nevertheless the casts are really good, and I find it understandable that in some cases the actors find it difficult to keep up with the weird flow of the story. Still, the major conflicts in the movie, such as the unknown mother, the unachieved love and the mysteries that each character holds, make the movie interesting. I am rarely interested in serials, but this one I find more as a drama. I think it is among the most interesting ones that I have ever seen and I encourage others to see it, also because it conveys some really good messages to the humans.
