I think La Duena, in its original form, was a good telenovela. It was very popular on Televisa in Mexico. As in most telenovelas, the rural setting is gorgeous. The main character, Regina (Angelica Rivera), is left at the alter by her two-timing, gold-digging fiance Mauricio, and runs away to her hacienda, Las Cascabeles, to heal her wounds. But she's very angry, bitter, and unhappy, and it's not long before everyone at Las Cascabeles, and in town, San Ignacio, is afraid of her. Except for her very handsome and strong-willed neighbor, Jose Maria Cortez (Gattorno, who else?), who suspects she's hiding real heartache and falls in love with her despite her very prickly exterior.
It seems to be the concensus of cyber-critics that all of the DVDs of telenovels are very poorly done. Too bad. So - buyer beware...
This resume is so short an bad, I prefer the complete soup opera.
STORY PLOT: A beautiful, young and generous woman is left alone at the altar on the day of her wedding, betrayed by her fiance and unknown to her, her own cousin (Laura in the oringinal becomes Ivana in the new,) who is like a sister to her.
