Summary of Catalina y Sebastian

After being betrayed by her boyfriend, Catalina Negrete succumbs to family pressure and marries Sebastian, a millionaire rancher. Sebastian is very much in love, but Catalina has married him only for the life of luxury he surely would give her. She and her family get the shock of their lives when she arrives at the ranch to discover that Sebastian lied, that he was only the ranch foreman. In reality, Sebastian was indeed the legitimate son of the wealthy rancher but was testing Catalina to see if she had married him for his money. Proving that this was so, Sebastian takes his revenge by refusing to give her a divorce and forcing her to live as the wife of a poor ranch worker. Little by little, Catalina begins to fall in love with her husband until she finally does not care that he is only a poor working man. But it's too late; Sebastian reveals that he is wealthy and it is he who wants the divorce. Things get complicated when Carmelo, the ranch foreman who took Sebastian's place as the ranch heir and who believes himself to be the bastard son of Sebastian's father, Don Lupe, refuses to return Sebastian's birthright, keeping the ranch and all of the property and money that his father had left him. Carmelo, who has also fallen in love with Catalina, puts her in a quandary: He will give Sebastian back all his money and property only if Catalina will agree to marry him...

"CATALINA Y SEBASTIAN" REVIEW

thanks to Laura
I just can't believe this novela was a success! I admit that the beginning was good enough: it seemed more a romantic comedy than a drama, but as soon as Catalina and Sebastián got married, everything began to fail, and "Catalina and Sebastian" became one of the most boring novelas ever produced: from the wedding onwards, every episode was the same: Catalina trying to show Sebastián that her love is real; Carmelo faking to be Lupe's son and the heir of his ranch; Carmelo and Adela doing their best to separate the couple, and Emilia trying to conquer Sebastián. Always the same. And the last chapters were so full of deaths! They didn't suit at all with the easy-going tone of what had been the rest of the story. The only good things were the chemistry between Sergio and Silvia (the most famous couple in Azteca Tv) and the performances of both the main protagonists and Claudia Islas (can anyone fancy her as a poor, worker woman?) and Alberto Mayagoitia.

Catalina y Sebastián es un ejemplo de cómo una telenovela mediocre puede mantenerte enganchado al televisor gracias a la potenciación de los 3 ó 4 buenos elementos que tenía, entre ellos: la química entre Silvia Navarro y Sergio Basáñez, una pareja estupenda pero cuyas interpretaciones caían en picado cuando no salían juntos; un par de buenos secundarios como Alberto Mayagoitia (estupendo papel, el mejor de todos los roles); Claudia Islas y poco más; la estupenda canción de Ana Gabriel; y un humor muy refrescante al princpio pero que acabó diluyéndose entre machismo, histerimso y asesinatos.

Sergio Basanes and Silvia Navarro fell in love with each other while they were starring in this wonderful telenovela. Unfortunately they broke up soon after the end of the movie, but they still are very good friends. Also they both as a couple are Mexico's favourites and play together in "La Calle del las Novias" and "Cuando saes mia".

Un acierto más de Antulio Jímenez Pons. La comedia involuntaria de Claudia Islas era simplemente deliciosa, la muerte de María Rebecca Lozano fue perfecta. Una telenovela al estilo Valentín Pimstein que tuvo mucho exito en México y Estados Unidos.

I think this telenovela was nice, the plot was excellent at the beginning, there was a lot of intrigue, love, and moments of fun. The theme was well managed, but at the end the story became a bit like too imaginative, and the end didn't fit very well, though I liked, the couple between the two protagonic actors was good, and the secondary characters did they job as they were meant to. Good job!!!
