Dona Barbara Review
Armando G. Martinez | USA | 12/27/2004
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I cannot compare Betty Kaplans Dona Barbara to the version where Maria Felix played Dona Barbara, since I have not seen that version. However, Betty Kaplans film version does do justice to the book by Romulo Gallegos. The music is very original and remains with you for days after having seen the movie. Location where movie was filmed has many of the characteristics and flavor described by Gallegos in the book. The acting is not bad and some performances are entralling. I would recommend this movie whether or not you have read the book. It would be more enjoyable if you read the book, preferably in Spanish in its original form."
