Alborada, 6/29/2011. Cap. 22. How ya gonna keep 'em down on the farm, after they've seen gay Paree?
On YouTube, haguilar78's clips for Cap 22 start at this link.
Everyone, thank Carlos for today's screenshot. His title: Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!
I'm not sure he is. That kid only has two acting credits and the first was FELS. I looked at the photo and he doesn't look the same as this little one. Plus someone else mentioned this kid is the nephew of one of the actresses. He probably doesn't have any actig credits after this tn. He was just a convenient 2 yr old.
But the litte boy that was in Amor Real was also in Pasion, he was also Javier in LLena de Amor, and was in Corazon Salvage, as well as a bunch of other tns (including Frijolito with Mauricio Ochman where he was in the starring role as Frijolito). He's obviously a popular actor. His name is Alejandro Felipe.
Looking forward to getting home to see today's episode.
Hah, my word verification is: friatis
I don't like Diego's interest in Marina.
I find Martin to be much more interesting as a character this time around. Yes he is a bit petulant and immature, however his refusal to simply accept his lot in life, i.e. the status to which he was born, is a very progressive way of thinking. I'm sure his schooling in Spain, which must have been shortly after the French Revolution, had something to do with his current mindset.
Martin's relationship with Luis is complex. Yes, Luis is a progressive thinker, however he still casually throws his weight around and seems to function within the defined parameters of his class. I think Martin's insistence in not blindly obeying Luis is making it uncomfortable not only for Martin's family but also for Luis. Luis probably has viewed himself as Martin's protector or mentor and now Martin is fighting for his independence. Hipolita is the catalyst but I suspect it would only have been a matter of time before Martin, fresh from his return from the more modern Spain, started rocking the boat back in his home town.
Just like Martin, Perla:
* has a rival that outclasses her, by a long shot.
* believes that if the rival would disappear, per beloved would come running back to her.
* loudly and wildly hurls insults about her rival.
* Owes a huge debt to Luis, but that fact has no influence on her decisions.
There are probably more parallels, but that's all I can think of at the moment.
Disk error! ARRGGG! The disk on which I recorded Cap 17 through today's has an error and refuses to play. You know, the episodes which contain all the parts of Luis breaking through with Hipolita? All gone. Waaaaaahhhhh!!!
But I am less sympathetic towards Perla. She's got her freedom, her own house (most could not say that), her health, her looks, a bunch of people looking out for her, and Luis helping her get a real profession. That's a heck of a lot more she could have ever expected out of life as an orphan and prostitute. She should be content and praising the good Lord for her good luck.
Asunción's simpering really seems over-the-top to me. She cringes so intensely that I can feel myself cringing involuntarily as I watch. (If I'm not mistaken, she's the same actress who was Aarón's mother in Destilando Amor - kind of an awful woman! I bet she had a lot more fun in that role! I think Felipe was Aarón's father in Destilando too, yes? And Vicente was Elvis - I'd recognize that voice even if I didn't know his face.)
Capt'n Sharkbait - I think what you are saying about Martin is that Luis sees their relationship as a patron/client deal (remember from our old Fea discussions), whereas Martin craves a peer relationship. I sympathize with him in theory; but in reality, it's quite uncommon, and not necessarily ideal, to have that kind of partnership with one's boss.
I'm not completely supporting Martin's actions and certainly the way in which he behaves is not very proactive, realistic or sensible, however I admire those people who push boundaries because they are the ones who can eventually cause change. I, too, recall being a bit of a hothead at that age. I'm not sure it did me much good.
In the original patron/client structure (Helenistic times), it was also the patron who arranged jobs and marriages for his clients' children. We see that here -
Juana got Asuncion's daughter into the convent.
Francisco went to (Juana or Diego?) for a job for his son.
Luis provided an education and job for Felipe's son.
Luis wants to provide Perla with a career.
And I dont think she is in Cuando, maybe in Teresa?
Regarding Luis and Martin, I see the patron/client point of view for Luis' side... But since Martin has fallen for Hipo and still believes he worthy of fighting for her, he is rebellious with Luis. Luis, on the other hand, feels like he needs to give Martin 'his spot on the race' even though the times would give Luis all kinds of advantages ... Hipo said it yesterday, she has fallen for Luis and besides, Luis is the one with the status, money and connections to help her get out of the hole she is in...
Marta, Olivia Bucio plays Ines in CME.
"Yeah, and if they burn books regularly, there may not be much to discuss about it."
Sometimes you really crack me up.
