Marielena (1994) - Lucía Méndez, Eduardo Yáñez

Summary of Marielena

Marielena is a girl raised with good morals by her mother and who lives with her brother and sister in an apartment. She becomes the secretary to Luis Felipe, and eventually Marielena and Luis Felipe have their affair.One day, while cavorting with him in his secret apartment, she forgets to take her birth control. As a result she gets pregnant. I believe around this time Luis Felipe considers leaving his wife (who is an older woman, and in fact plays his aunt's rival in Guadalupe) Claudia, who he married for money. Claudia threatens and pleads with him not to leave... Around this time, Claudia's nephew (whose father loses all of his money and political career and ends up a pauper) asks her for money (to support his drug habit) but when she does not give it to him, he stabs her to death with a letter opener. Luis Felipe finds her and in order to save a pregnant Marielena (who gets accused for the murder as the nephew had snuck out thru a window and was not seen) confesses to a murder he did not commit. He goes to jail thinking he saved her, and she moves on, thinking he killed his wife. Eventually she marries a man who pretends he is still blind from an accident (to keep her) and Luis Felipe is released from jail. Then, the roles are reversed, as Luis Felipe ends up working for Marielena. Everyone tries to stop their love, but eventually, Luis Felipe and Marielena get back together and the nephew (who is dying from AIDS) admits that he killed Claudia.

En Soledad (Peru) Lupita Ferrer vuelve a meterse en un personaje repetido, parece que no aprende!

Esta novela la vi cuando yo estaba en el colegio. Fue buena... pero no entendia porque la mama tenia un acento gallego si se supone que la familia eran balseros de Cuba. Tambien era de risa ver a la Mendez (por mas buena actriz que sea) haciendo el papel de una chica de 20 y tantos cuando se tenia esas tremendas ojeras! hasta Claudia (la esposa de Luis Felipe) se veia mejor. Aun asi, bastante disfrutada en Costa Rica...

La versión original, Ligia Sandoval, fue protagonizada por Lupita Ferrer y José Bardina. La segunda versión se llamo Querida Mamá. En la versión mas reciente realizada en Perú en el año 2000, la misma Lupita interpreta a la esposa del protagonista, Victoria Álvarez Calderón. Este personaje había sido interpretado por la primerísimo actriz Eva Blanco en Querida Mamá y por Zully Montero en Marielena.

Lucía Méndez siempre presume de hacer historias originales pero esta no lo es como ya esta visto en la ficha tecnica que aqui presentan los creadores de esta excelente pagina. De nueva cuenta a la pobre de Zully Montero le tocó recibir el cachetadon de su vida de manos de la Méndez en donde la sienta de una sonora bofetada a media sala y deja a Zully echando lumbre por los ojos. Excelente escena. Felicidades Señor Crousillat!!!

Ligia Sandoval no es la version original de esta telenovela. La primera version fue Querida Mama, la segunda fue Marielena y la mas reciente Soledad.

Muy buena telenovela con una perfecta e impresionante actuación de Zully Montero, que en mi opinión fue la mejor del elenco, lástima que tuviera un mal final para una excelente actuación y una respetable actriz.
