Summary of La Jaula de Oro

Everything happens in Villa Miraflores, beautiful country mansion, in the golden cage of Oriana Valtierra, where she had lived throughout her adolescence. Before coming to Miraflores, Oriana, who lost her parents when she was just a kid, lived with her grandfather César Valtierra in Mexico. When she was barely 10 years old, she was brutally raped by one of her grandfather's employees. Even though she doesn't remember anything about the incident, the trauma she experienced subconsciously stays in her personality: whenever she sees the slightest act of aggression, she becomes scared stiff, and cannot move. Concerned about her welfare, her grandfather and her aunt Ofelia decided to take her to live to Villa Miraflores, to separate her from the strangers and all the bad things that happen in the society. Her grandfather suddenly dies, and everything changes for Oriana. Unexpectedly, she inherits lots of money and marries a distinguished lawyer Flavio Canet. She also finds out that her twin sister Carolina who was considered to be dead, still lives in Puerto Rico, unaware of her real family. But Carolina dies under strange circumstances just a few days after her wedding with Alex Moncada. Alex was also a victim. He was set up as if he had killed a woman on Isla del Rey. After being incarcerated, Alex almost dies in a set-up fire, but after all manages to run away. He tries to find out what really happened to him and to his wife, and comes to Miraflores as Franco López. Oriana, not knowing who he really is, falls in love with him, and he with her.

"La Jaula de oro" is a remake of telenovela "De Pura Sangre"


thanks to Lilia
This telenovela tugs at our hearts in many different ways. The innocence and genuine goodness displayed by Oriana makes us question why humanity isn't more like her, while the abusive and dishonest treatment of her husband angers us. Her elderly aunt makes us wonder if we love as selfishly as she, without meaning to. We just can't wait until all the bad guys get theirs, but until then this soap keeps us at the edge of our seats. Of course, the very best part, is the passion and true love that blossoms between Oriana and Alex. I have enjoyed watching this novela more than any other and actually look forward to it everyday!

La jaula de oro is very good, I am enjoying it from the fisrt episode, too bad it took Univision 6 years to show it over here in USA. Interesting plot, realistic personages, especially villains. And the dialogs are written very good. The words they are saying are just right.

I have 3 words to say about it.... I LOVE IT. Es una novela muy interesante, moderna y sexy.

Me encantaba el video de apertura y los creditos donde Edith nadaba aparentando estar desnuda en un estanque lleno de agua y color, hasta ahora la mejor apertura que he visto. En Ecuador el tema musical fue "Me muero por volverte a ver" de Uno y Otro.

It's one of the best telenovelas I've seen, Saul gives his best and as always he's great, Edith and him make a wonderful couple.

En Mexico La jaula de oro no funciono bien, fue cortada, ya que su raiting fue pesimo, fue una mala copia de De pura sangre de Humberto Zurita y Christia Bach. Se rumoraba que Edith gonzalez tenia la maldicion de Corazon salvaje ya que los actores que participaban en ella ya no volvian a tener un exito equitativo, y su novela anterior la Sombra del otro tambien fracazo, Nunca te olvidare fue una novela normal y Salome igual.

"La jaula del loro". En Perú la dieron en 1997, a las 9pm y realmente me parecía sosa la historia, pero ahora que sé que es nueva versión de DE PURA SANGRE, sólo x curiosidad la vería. Me daba risa porque en esa época, la estrenaron en Bolivia... a las 8 de la mañana!!!
