Here is a brand new costume series available on Netflix as of December 14th! THE VILLAMIZARS (Las Villamizar) is a 72 episode tele novella set in the midst of the Spanish Reconquest in 1816, and following three high society sisters on a mission to avenge their mother, killed by the Spanish army. The telenovela stars Shany Nadan, María José Vargas, and Estefanía Piñeres. You can also check out the rather dynamic, albeit a bit cheap looking, Spanish language trailer below as I did not manage to find one with English subtitles, sadly! Netflix has terrible marketing.
SET IN EARLY 1800s COLOMBIA
the series follows Carolina, Leonor and Isabela, three sisters from the high society of El Socorro. They join the Liberator Army as spies motivated to pursue those responsible for the death of their mother, Beatriz de Villamizar, at the hands of Captain José María Montenegro. Gerardo Villamizar, using his military past within the Commoners Movement, prepares his three daughters in different disciplines of combat, infiltration and sabotage. The three sisters carry out missions and assignments given to them by the Independence Army, and in return, the army gives them information on the location of the culprits so that they can intercept the murderers and accomplices of Montenegro and thus bring justice.
I've always trusted Colombian telenovelas specially their period pieces but I cannot bring myself to watch this, perhaps the pictures of the sisters in samurai gear have something to do with it?ReplyDelete
I find the casting very bizarre for some reason LOL It's been ages since I've seen a Latino telenovella. At some point they have been replaced by Turkish and Indian soaps in my country.Delete
You haven't missed much. The Golden Era of Telenovela is past, Turks and Koreans picked up the model and do it well.Delete
Asian ones are something I don't think I will ever get into.Delete
I have a feeling that I would fall asleep if I watched this one LOLReplyDelete
But they are lady ninjas LOLDelete
Netflix and cheap marketing you say? I never see any marketing from them at all other than on Facebook. I'd say for as much as they charge subscribers, they can afford to do a lot better of a job in the marketing department. Then again, they do have to pay the likes of those idiots Harry and Megan as well as the Obamas lots of monies for their trash projects, so I guess that's where their budget goes. In any case, I don't think this one is for me.ReplyDelete
I mean sometimes they don't even upload a freaking trailer onto their YouTube, like in this case or that Smiley series a few weeks ago.Delete
Lots of period dramas out now it seems. Greetings!ReplyDelete
That is true.Delete
