Summary of Marimar
Marimar is an innocent girl who lives on the beach with her elderly grandparents. They are very poor, and sometimes, Marimar has to steal to keep food on the table. One day she finds herself in need and she goes to the Hacienda Ibanez to steal some vegetables and eggs for her family. The foreman catches her redhanded and attempts to take advantage of her; he tells her that she can take the vegetables if she lets him kiss her. Marimar resists and her screams bring Sergio, the spoiled son of the house, running. He defends her and then tells her that under all her grime she is "beautiful." Marimar falls in love with him on the spot. And when Sergio hatches a plot to revenge himself on his family because they won't give him his half of the inheritance, insisting that he settle down once and for all, he concieves of a plan to marry the "dirty girl from the beach" to humiliate them. Marimar, dazzled, agrees to marry Sergio and falls into his fiendish plot without knowing that her own father, an extremely wealthy man who abandoned her mother, is looking for her now to make her his heir.

"Marimar" is a remake of telenovela "La Venganza".
"Pulgoso" is played by a dog called "Cuaz".
thanks to Meche
Everything is perfectly crafted so that it could keep the viewer's interest. The character of Marimar (which is very complete and mature) is like they had done it especially for her. There, Thalia showed her fans and her opponents how far she could go. Thalia's emotions reached the audience, and there were moments in which the way she treated her lines was very poignant. Everything made sense so there were no loose ends. It was a great mixture of a villain with a nice person, also, good mixture of humor and drama. They all worked very hard...

"Marimar" was the best telenovela since "Los Ricos Tambien Lloran". It was the second of the trilogy starring Thalia. In this novela, Thalia played the title role of a beautiful girl who is living on the beach and falls in love with a handsome guy named Sergio. Mexican actor and pop star Eduardo Capetillo plays Sergio. Now before they're teaming up for this telenovela, Thalia and Eduardo were part of the Mexican teen pop group, Timbiriche.

Marimar es una exelente historia, que deomostró que una historia sencilla, buenas actuaciones y la tipica cenicienta, aun cautiva al publico a nivel mundial. Muy buena actuación de Chantal Anderes y la actuación de Thalia fue muy superior a la de María Mercedes (1992), bien por todo el elenco felicitaciones, hacen falta mas historias así...

Excellent novela. One of the best I've seen. Thalia's performance was great. **Tidbit: MariMar's grandmother (Ada Carrasco) died in real life days after her character was killed in the novela. She died of a heart attack.

No me gusto esta novela, Thalia sigio con el esquema de cenicienta y su actuacion me parecio recontra fingida. Eduardo Capetillo no me parece que sea un galan como es considerado. Lo unico bueno de la novela fue Chantal Andere y Pulgoso.

Your basic Thalia novela. Poor girl, rich guy fall in love. Throw in some of her bad acting skills, and it's done. Even when I was nine I knew it was stupid, I don't even know why I watched it. They call her the queen of novelas, I guess just because they are very succesfull. The only explination I can find is that she must have sold her soul to the devil.

She must have sold her soul to the devil? Then all of us who watched this novela and helped her succeed the way it did must be the devil, what a "devilish" success this soap had, and what a "devilish" talent Thalia has! I'm proud of the fact that "Marimar" was made with a very low budget, and nevertheless they very humbly achieved such success, and if Thalia were such a bad actress producer Carla Estrada wouldn't be looking forward to working with her.
