The telenovela roots of this wild family saga are audaciously on display in a many-stranded story that ricochets between the present and the past circa 1914. Their love lives seemingly jinxed by a curse that dooms their husbands and boyfriends, three lusty sisters, Alma, Julia, and Mariana, return to the sprawling, poltergeist-haunted family estate to discover the source of the problem in the story of ancestor Rafaela, an unwilling bride dragged to her nuptial bed roped like a calf. Throw in a defrocked priest, a jungle fighter with a price on his head, and a handsome stable hand with a mysterious past, and it’s lush entertainment characterized by melodrama, comedy, and lots of sex. In Spanish with English subtitles. DCP digital widescreen. (BS)
