La Mejor Novela del Siglo / The Best Soap Opera of the Centu
KAppleFeet2 | 10/05/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"*****This review is in Spanish and English!*****

ESPAÑOL:
Dame Chocolate fue una telenovela de muchísimo éxito que atrajo a un publico enorme a través de los Estados Unidos. Esta historia muy original, escrita por Perla Ferias, se trate una joven Mexicana llamada Rosita Amado (Génesis Rodríguez). Rosita es muy humilde y muy buena, pero la pobre también es increíblemente fea y ingenua. Muy pronto, la vida de la Rosita y su familia cambian cuando Juan Amado (Héctor Suarez), el abuelo de Rosita, muere. Juan tenia una fabrica de chocolates en Miami y al morir, el dejo a su nieta encargada de la receta secreta del chocolate mágico. Rosita y su familia se van a vivir a los Estados Unidos para mantener a la fabrica de Juan, pero para una familia que ha vivido en la pobreza toda su vida - esto es un gran cambio! Desafortunadamente, Juan Amado no era el único dueño de Chocolate Supremo. Grace Remington (Kristina Lilley) y su hijo, Bruce Remington (Carlos Ponce), también son dueños de la fabrica. Y aunque Rosita y Bruce empiezan a sentir sentimientos por cada uno, Grace se siente superior a ellos y esta dispuesta a hacer todo -incluso matar- por conseguir la receta secreta y sacar a los Amados de América. Las cosas se ponen peor cuando Ángel Pérez (Khotan), un malvado hombre de México que Rosita cree ser su amigo, también llega a los Estados Unidos y se alía con Grace. Después de emoción, confusión, y traición, todos dan a Rosita por muerta después de un incidente trágico...pero ella a regresado como Violeta Hurtado. Ahora, una Rosita mucho mas inteligente lleva puesta la mascara de belleza para vengarse de los Remington y recuperar la fabrica de su abuelo Juan. Ella tiene una nueva receta de chocolate, y una nueva receta para el amor...
Lo que hizo esta novela mas popular que las miles otras que habían en el momento (aparte de su final completamente inesperado) era la imaginación que tuvo la escritora. Dame Chocolate combina el romance con el misterio y el suspenso con la fantasia. Esta no es una novela común e corriente porque hay religión y cultura Maya involucrados en esta producción. Hay bastante suspenso y humor, y a la mitad de la serie, la novela toma un giro extraordinario que solo sigue demonstrando que buena fue esta novela. Maria Antonieta de las Nieves (actriz del famoso programa de Chespirito, "El Chavo del Ocho") y Mauricio Ochmann actuan en este obra de arte clásica. Dame Chocolate es una novela muy bien escrita que merece ser comprada por TODOS los fanáticos (los hombres tambien) que la vieron en televisión, y por gente que disfruta ver buenas historias. Cinco de cinco!


ENGLISH:
Dame Chocolate ("Give Me Chocolate") was a very successful soap opera that attracted a large public across the United States. This original story, written by Perla Ferias, is about a young Mexican woman named Rosita Amado (Génesis Rodríguez). Rosita is very humble and very nice, but she's incredibly ugly and extremely oblivious. Soon enough, everything changes for Rosita and her family when Juan Amado (Héctor Suarez), Rosita's grandfather, passes away. Juan had a chocolate factory in Miami and when he died, he left his granddaughter in charge of the secret formula for the magic chocolate. Rosita and her family move to the United States to maintain Juan's chocolate factory running, but this is a big change for a family who's lived in poverty all their life! Unfortunately, Juan Amado wasn't the only owner of the factory Chocolate Supremo (Supreme Chocolate). Grace Remington (Kristina Lilley) and her son, Bruce Remington (Carlos Ponce), are also owners of the factory. And even though Rosita and Bruce start having feelings for each other, Grace's feeling of superiority gets the best of her and she intends to steal the secret formula and kick the Amados out of America and back into Mexico. She id even willing to kill... Things start to worsen when Ángel Pérez (Khotan), a bad guy from Mexico that Rosita mistakenly considers her friend, follows her into the U.S. and befriends the evil Grace. After emotions, confusion, and betrayal, everyone believes Rosita to be dead after a quite tragic incident...but she is alive and is now back to seek revenge on the Remingtons. Now a clever Rosita, now disguised as the beautiful Violeta Hurtado, is determined to win back her grandfather's factory and punish those who humiliated her for her intelligence and ugliness. She has a new recipe for chocolate and new recipe for love...
What made this particular soap opera so much more popular than the other millions of soaps out there (besides its totally cool, totally unexpected ending) was the imagination of the author. Dame Chocolate combines romance with mystery and suspense with fantasy. This is not your ordinary soap opera, as Mayan culture and magic make their own appearance in this popular show. There's a lot of suspense and humor in this series, and then plot takes an unexpected turning point with its own twist that only further proves how good this story is. Maria Antonieta de las Nieves (an actress from Chespirito's famous Spanish TV show, "El Chavo del Ocho") and Mauricio Ochmann participate in this classic. Dame Chocolate is very well written and deserves to be bought by those who watched it on TV, and for those who enjoy watching a good show - men, too! 5/5 stars!"
Confusing!

"I love the story line as it was presented on TV, so I bought the DVD. The person(s) that edited this on to DVD should be fired. I realize they had to shorted the story but the cut out too many important scenes. The acting is great, the story was great and it does improve your spanish, but it was reduced in quality by the awful editing. They completely missed the overall story.
Me encanto la novela cuando la vie por tele, y lo compre. Las personas que cortaron la novela la convertiron en un disastre!"
Vital Scenes left out

"I don't get Telemundo because I have Direct TV (I know it is vey sad). So I was impatiently waiting for this DVD to come out. Unfortunately there are gaps in the editing that is almost unforgivable. (When did the family go back to Mexico again, Xenon?)I still gave the DVD four stars because eventhough I had no real idea about all that was going on I still was sucked into the story."
Worst editing job ever!

"I watched the original on TV, and loved it! Unfortunately, the people in charge of the editing for the DVD version did an awful job. I would say more than half of the episodes are missing or cut short. Key scenes were deleted, ruining the flow of the story. Not only are subplots cut short, but also the story between the main characters (Rosita & Bruce). If you haven't watched the original you may still enjoy it, but you'll definitely know there are key scenes missing!

En español:
Vi esta telenovela en la televisión y me encantó. Desafortunadamente el equipo a cargo de editar la versión para el DVD hizo un trabajo pésimo. Yo diría que faltan más de la mitad de los episodios o fueron editados pobremente. Faltan escenas claves para el desarrollo de la historia. Al editar no sólo cortaron escenas de las historias paralelas, sino también de la historia de los personajes principales (Rosita y Bruce). Si no ha visto la original puede ser que la disfrute, pero se dará cuenta de que falta mucho."
