7 Sins

This soap opera is set in São Paulo, some places are in a rich neighborhood and another are in a poor neighborhood. The story is about the seven sins: pride, wrath, greed, envy, lust, sloth and gluttony. There are 3 main characters: Beatriz, Clarice and Dante. Beatriz is a very rich and powerful woman. She won a statue of her father that contains a secret. She is very silly, because of that, she needs help from an angel (Custodia). Beatriz also falls in love with Dante.Dante is an honest and kind man who works now for Beatriz. He is married with Clarice. His wife is a simple woman that has a very annoying mother.

In the last episode, Beatriz kissed Dante and Clarice fought with her in the street. After that, Clarice went home with Dante. The day after Dante said all the truth to Clarice, they engaged again. When Dante left home, Clarice’s mother told her to make him jealous. At this same time, on the rich neighborhood, Custódia told Beatriz an advertisement, but Beatriz didn’t understand it and thinks that Dante needs to believe that Clarice has an affair to the couple break up. With that wrong, but good idea, Beatriz promoted Custódia to her personal assistant.

Soap operas, for me, needs to be different because most soap operas talk about the real life; so it becomes boring some times. However, I like some of the funny soap operas because its makes I laugh. Seven sins is a really famous soap opera because it is funny and shows all the people’s debility. On the other hand, it is interesting to make us think about our lives.

In Portugal we watched a lot of Brazilian soap Operas. When I was a student I used to watch them too. Then when I started to work, and also to be more and more on the Internet, I stopped watching most of the shows I used too. I haven't seen this one. I have to ask my mum if it being broadcast in the Portuguese telly! ;-)

I've been reading all the posts and this seems to be the first one that is about a Brazilian show! I think Brazil has a lot of TV series, doesn't it, so I wonder why everybody is watching the American shows instead.
