"The novela is based on Jennifer Lopez' Spanish song, "Como Ama una Mujer".
First, the song is amazing; the acting is pretty good but, the story is not very original. Of course, there are no similarities whatsoever between Jennifer Lopez' life and this mini-series (insert cynical eye-roll here). Joking aside, the series is very (extremely) reminiscent of Jennifer López' life plus a little bit of "The Bodyguard (Special Edition)" thrown in the mix (namely the stalker and the bitter assistant).
I was quickly drawn into the story and was happily surprised by Leonor Varela's performance. You may remember Leonor Varela from her performance in the "Cleopatra" miniseries. Rebecca Jones and Rocío Verdejo also did a good job.
The series plainly showcases Jennifer López and there is a lot of product placement (way too obvious) but, it is good, entertaining.
The novela tells the story of a famous singer and actress who is trying to find true love; in this case is trying to decide between two men-child. Both Diego (Raúl Méndez) and Andrés (Christián de la Fuente) play the most self-absorbed, egocentric and selfish men ever. By the third episode I was wishing she would just stay alone and move on without them.
Although the mini-series lasts four hours, I found that the story was hurried and not well-developed. It shows a immature work that hurries to tell a story without really digging in. The characters actions did not seem to go with the story. Everyone tells Sofía that she is the most selfish person ever (and at one point she thinks so herself) and yet, we see her as the only one really giving herself to the one she loves. Diego is constantly questioning her love for him and can't seem to outgrow his childish jealousy outbursts. And Andrés is in self-wallowing misery, blaming everyone but himself.
This DVD has no Special Features whatsover and yes, no subtitles.
