Summary of De Pura Sangre

In the small town of San Miguel Allende, the wealthy Don Alberto Duarte Solis passes away, much to the delight of gold-digging Leonardo, the fiancé of Don Alberto's only niece, Florencia. But to his horror, the bulk of Don Alberto's fortune is bequeathed instead to a stranger in Madrid, Alberto Salerno. Along with his uncle, Leonardo arranges to have Alberto framed for drug trafficking while en route to Mexico. He marries Florencia and urges her to challenge the will in Alberto's "mysterious" continued absence. But almost a year later, a fire at the prison allows an enraged Alberto to escape and he heads to San Miguel Allende with revenge on his mind. He doesn't know who set him up but he highly suspects Florencia, who knew he was coming and was the only one who stood to gain from his incarceration. A former police officer, Alberto launches his investigation. Upon arriving in town, he gives a false name, Marcos, and solicits a job as a lowly ranch hand at the large estate that technically belongs to him. But once there, the target of his rage takes the shape of a beautiful, sad Florencia and he finds he cannot believe she is guilty. Florencia, too, trapped in an unfulfilling marriage, finds herself drawn to the new ranchhand, who constantly watches her with burning eyes. Florencia and Alberto come together in a tide of passion as Leonardo spins out of control and becomes increasingly homicidal in his attempts to cover up his misdeeds.

"DE PURA SANGRE" REVIEW

thanks to Marco from Monterrey, Mexico
La pareja Zurita-Bach seguia cosechando exitos y DE PURA SANGRE significo su consolidacion como la sensacion que Mexico estaba esperando. Humberto era un galan rudo e irresistible como el peon del cual se enamoraba la fragil y bella Christian. Enrique Alvarez Felix sabiamente acepto tomar un rol secundario y resucito su carrera con una de las actuaciones mas escalofriantes que se han visto. Toco temas tabu para la television mexicana en ese entonces como la violencia en un matrimonio y la impotencia masculina. Alicia Rodriguez tambien un triunfal retorno a la television con su papel de la tia Beatriz, manipuladora y fria. Guillermo Garcia Cantu tambien atrajo mucha atencion principalmente por lo parecido de su estilo actoral con el de Zurita - todo mundo comentaba que sus voces eran igualitas. Manuel Ojeda regio, asi como Victor Junco que tenia tiempo de no actuar. Uno de los grandes exitos de los ochentas.

La primera telenovela mexicana que presento ardientes escenas de cama entre los protagonistas; HUMBERTO ZURITA y CHRISTIAN BACH. E inicio un romance que termino en una de las bodas mas publicitadas de la historia del espectaculo méxicano. CHRISTIAN se caso con el vestido que uso en "Bodas de Odio". HUMBERTO no ocultaba el desagrado que le causo el que la iglesia estuviera repleta de camaras y curiosos que se empujaban para verlos declararse su amor ante los ojos de Dios.

I was only 12 years old when I saw 'Il segreto' (the italian translation of 'De Pura Sangre'), but I will never forget it. It was wonderful. Still now, after seeing many novelas, I think this is one of the best ever made. The plot was original, modern and full of innovative ideas. There was nothing of the bigotry of other novelas. The personage of Florencia was that of a modern, independent woman. I liked it very much.

Esta telenovela fue muy bonita y en Ecuador le pusieron un Gran Tema Musical durante la entrada de la novela. Creo que se llamaba Que Dificil Es, pero no estoy seguro quien lo cantaba. Era un hombre con voz parecida a Agustin Pantoja.

I think it is one of the most interesting and modern novelas that I have ever seen. It was something completely new in the panorama of the novela, because it talked about some 'tabu', like male impotence. It was a great show.

Me encantaría ver de nuevo "De pura sangre", pues ésta ya había iniciado cuando yo volví de México, a finales de julio de 1986, en lo que sería mi primer viaje a ese maravilloso país, al que considero mi segunda patria. Por otra parte, fue una estupenda telenovela, con grandes actuaciones y hermosos escenarios (San Miguel Allende, en Guanajuato, uno de los muchos tesoros del México colonial). A ver cuándo la programan por el canal "Telenovelas" de Latinoamérica.

Una muy buena novela. De las mejores de los ochentas; el dúo Zurita-Bach trabajó estupendamente y en esta novela iniciaron su romance que ha trascendido hasta nuestros días. Muy fregonas las locaciones en San Miguel de Allende, creo que ya se ha dicho bastante sobre esta novela, pero quiero recalcar que las actuaciones de Enrique Alvarez Félix y Manuel Ojeda fueron excelentes. "El señor telenovela" Don Ernesto Alonso nos regaló otra joya de historia.
