She fluently speaks English and French languages and dresses up luxury and stylish. Her abilities enable her to become the right hand for Yago. She has a tenacious and a computer-like mind, so appropriate for business though she is tender and kind deeply inside. She prefers to be candid and mild at home.

She comprehends that a woman by Yago should hide her real emotions and intentions to avoid traps. Yago is known to be a womanizer and she knows it but she loves him and cannot hide her feelings at all. He accepts such affair when he sympathizes her and that’s all he can give her.

all women folks should learn from this movie that one should not bitray the trust btween you and your friends and love ones and to know that money is not wisdom But viewers remember that this is just a film to educate women of this generation, but dont mean that Babara mori is a bad woman.

aaron2010  - One of the best novelas from Mexico.   |2011-05-07 06:14:43
I remember when Rubi debuted on Univision back in 2004. I was kind of familiar with Barbara Mori but most of the cast members such as Eduardo Santamarina, Sebastian Rulli, Jacqueline Bracamontes, Jose Elias Moreno, Jan, Marco Mendez, Eduardo Rodriguez, Manuel Landeta, Sergio Goyri,and Ingrid Martz I was already familiar with from other telenovelas. Other cast members such as Ana Martin, Paty Diaz, Carlos Camara, Antonio Medellin, Tanya Vasquez, Roberto Vander, Ana Bertha Espin, Arlette Pacheco, and Olivia Bucio I became familiar with through this novela. And of course, I was definitely familiar with "Hotties" Marlene Favela and Yadhira Carrillo before I saw this novela as well. When it first debuted on TV in September, 2004, I didn't watch much of it until December of that year. From Dec.2004 till March, 2005 I actually watch Rubi seriously although the whole time I was watching it I'd always tell myself, "why didn't I watch this novela from the beginning." A few months after the novela ended on TV, I bought the DVD(the first novela I bought on DVD). When I bought the DVD, I thought, "hey I could finally watch this novela from start to finish." As I watched the DVD, I noticed a lot of footage from episodes I watched seriously or took glances of were missing. Sure, that was a disappointment but the DVD was still good and I also liked seeing the ending of the original version of Rubi from 1968 that was included in the Special Features within the DVD. As for the novela itself, in my opinion, Rubi was one of the best telenovelas to come out of Mexico in sometime. Hell, my jaw dropped at the ending of the last episode. Even the two hour continuation special was good and was included in the DVD as well. A couple of days ago, I noticed that a third remake of Rubi was released last year but in the Phillippines. I saw some footage of that version on Youtube. Some of the footage looked similar to the Mexican version but other footage was different. I wouldn't mind checking out that version but of course, I'll stick with the Mexican version. Overall, still one of the best novelas from Mexico.

Saludos, Aaron A.
