Parientes Pobres, Los

(12 votes)

Los Parientes Pobres telenovelaMargarita Santos lives with her family in a small town outside of México City. When her father dies, leaving the family business completely bankrupt and the man she loves marries another woman for money, Margarita realizes that money is everything and achieving wealth becomes her only goal in life. When her father's cousin learns of the family's bad luck, he invites them to live with him and his family in México City.

Margarita is resentful of this "uncle" because she believes that he robbed her father of the family business, but he is a kind man who is still in love with Margarita's mother, whom his cousin had stolen away from him years ago. Margarita meets Jesus Sanchez ("Chucho"), an honest but poor young man with a heart of gold who is working on a deal with her uncle to sell his land which may be very valuable. He falls in love with Margarita at first sight, but she is blinded by her pride and rabid desire for money and rejects his advances, telling him that she could never love a man who wasn't rich. Margarita and Chucho don't appear to have a lot in common, as she seems to love only money and he could be completely happy without a penny to his name. However, the two will fall in love, although it will be difficult for their love to survive the misunderstandings about each other and the evildoings of those that surround them.

I remember hearing of and seeing "Los Parientes Pobres" in 1993. That summer I was visiting relatives in Hermosillo, Mexico and this is one of the many novelas they used to watch. This was the first novela that I first heard of Lucero, Ernesto La Guardia,Chantal Andere, and Joaquin Cordero. What I saw of the novela looked good, but I'm wondering if a DVD for "Los Parientes Pobres" will ever be released in the near future. Saludos,Aaron A.
