     Telenovelas-Internet.com. Resumen / Summary:  Julieta es una niña de 10 años que cultiva una amistad con Pedro y Cristóbal, dos niños un poco mayores que ella y herederos de la próspera hacienda "El Castillo". Genaro Valencia, el padre de ambos, se opone esta amistad porque considera inferior a Julieta. Cerca de "El Castillo" vive Gabriel Almada, un pintor que terminará haciendose cargo de la pequeña Julieta. De una manera desinteresada la lleva bajo su tutela a estudiar fuera del pueblo. Así, con el paso de los años, ella se convierte en una brillante doctora. Movida por la nostalgia, decide volver al pueblo y ejercer allí su profesión. Gabriel en su afán de protegerla decide seguirla. Instalados ya en el pueblo, el pasado revive las pasiones. En Genaro renace el odio hacia Gabriel, pues siempre supo que el pintor era el verdadero amor de su esposa Sofía. Este odio es compartido por Pedro, quien alguna vez vió a Gabriel besando a su madre y ahora se siente herido al saber que su amiga de la infancia está bajo la influencia de un hombre que para él es, a todas luces, despreciable. Genaro trae a "El Castillo" a su sobrina Nadia, con la idea de solucionar sus problemas económicos a través de la fortuna que la muchacha ha heredado. Por su lado, Julia descubre que aquella amistad infantil con Pedro se ha convertido en un amor maduro y bien correspondido. Pero son separados por Nadia, quien ha puesto sus ojos en él. Julieta, sola y herida se refugia en Gabriel, quien para entonces ya ha descubierto que aquél cariño paternal que sentía por la niña se ha convertido en una obsesión adulta por la mujer. En Julieta se desatan sentimientos ambivalentes. Por Pedro siente la pasión desenfrenada, mientras que Gabriel le ofrece una amor tranquilo. Así, Julieta tendrá que decidirse por alguno de estos dos amores que la han "perseguido" toda su vida.

     Telenovelas-Internet.com Subject: My article about "Laberintos de Pasion" Author: Robyn Barnette (63.214.192.60) Date:  07-21-2000 19:10  I thought it would be a good idea to post an article I wrote about "Laberintos de Pasion." Based on this information and based on the reviews I've read about it, I KNOW it is going to be a smash hit.  The greatest thing about this story is that it is produced by El Señor Telenovela Ernesto Alonso. I have always been impressed and fascinated with the productions he brings to the television screen, and he continues that tradition here with "Laberintos de Pasion."  This novela will be a great relief from the torture we are now enduring with "Tres Mujeres". "Tres Mujeres" is also a good story, too, but now this story is, as one person described it, "A Waste of Nine Months where everyone is an idiot, jerk, cheater, or annoying."  Enough talk, here's the information about "Laberintos de Pasion."  -----------------------------  "Laberintos de Pasión"  "El Señor Telenovela" Ernesto Alonso returns with newest production at the same time he is returning as actor in "El Elegido"  By: Robyn Barnette  (Copyright 1999 El Espectro, which is no longer in print)  MEXICO, D.F.—"El Señor Telenovela" Ernesto Alonso is proving his versatility as the greatest producer in the history of the telenovelas, and now he's doing so in two facets: One, as an actor in his role as the evil Enrique De Martino in the upcoming sequel to "El Maleficio" (Evil Spell) titled "El Elegido" (The Chosen); and two, as producer of the new Televisa telenovela "Labrientos de Pasión" (The Passionate Maze). The new Televisa telenovela made its debut on October 4 in place of "Por tu Amor" (Through Your Love), and stars Leticia Calderón and Francisco Gattorno.  Calderón manifested that "the fact that Ernesto Alonso is the producer means a guarantee since he has a lot of experience. He takes care of each detail and even he worries about his people and their state of spirit. It is a delight to work with him, since he doesn't have any preference for anyone."  About her participation in "Labrientos de Pasión," Calderón mentioned that she had worked with Alonso before in the telenovelas "Yo Compro Esa Mujer" (I Bought That Woman) and "La Antorcha Encendida" (The Burning Torch). She also assured that after her performance in "Esmeralda" and a brief stint in "El Diario de Daniela" (Daniela's Diary), this return to the small screen represents a great professional challenge, although she denied that this would be a competition with other actresses.  Calderón is portraying the role of Julieta Valderrama, who is a woman of strong character and lives her life to the fullest. Life taught her how to live and defend herself, and, "for that she collides with other character that intend to humiliate her, as long as she is in front of two others, she is a young girl again: Playful, affectionate; needy of love and protection."  Calderón identifies with this role since, "I also am a very independent woman and, at the same time, very girl-like. This character has a lot in common with me."  Calderón manifested her satisfaction that they gave her the opportunity to demonstrate her ability as an actress. "I can represent the same role as a villain, a prostitute, a nun, or mentally retarded. In the sixteen years of my career, I have demonstrated that I am a professional and more or less, I put all my heart in my work. I study and prepare myself and earn a lot."  On the other hand, actor Francisco Gattorno said to be calm by the greeting from the audience and from the ratings for "Labrientos de Pasión," although he recognized that for the moment he is concerned about the acceptance of his character Pedro Valencia. However, Gattorno feels proud to work with Ernesto Alonso and describes him as an artist that knows television.  About his role, Gattorno said that, "The writers had a lot of care when structuring it, but for being a telenovela it goes through absurd thing and for that, it only leaves me to play around with that to make it more worthy and not to deceive the people or myself. It has many shades and lives thousands of sensations, which takes him from a frivilous character to all which face him."  In that sense, Gattorno specified that "Labrientos de Pasión" leaves a side that is thrased in many occassions. And it is, "The people who get tired of that; I put myself in the place of the audience and I think that to see a telenovela that has its delivery to be noticed, its the part of the actors to make this possible."  Finally, Gattorno affirmed that the length of "Labrientos de Pasión" means to him an incentive and a challenge, because, "they are people with a category more tan proven and from that a lot is learned. Each time I work with Manuel Ojeda or María Rubio in a scene, I thank God."  "Labrientos de Pasión" takes place in the cities of Mazatlán and Mexico City. The cast includes César Evorá, Manuel Ojeda, Alma Delfina, Tiaré Scanda, Mónika Sánchez, Pedro Armendáriz, Aarón Hernán, María Rubio, Socorro Bonilla and Jacqueline Andere.  María del Carmen Peña and Cuahtémoc Blanco are the writers of the original story, and the theme to "Labrientos de Pasión" is performed by Pedro Fernandez.

Genaro, furioso con su sobrina por haberle mentido acerca de Javier y de por qué había llegado hasta el rancho, le reclama. Ella una vez que se quitó la máscara le dice que a ambos les conviene que siga casada con Pedro, de lo contrario perderá su parte del rancho. Lo que Genaro ignora es que Nadia no tiene ni un centavo de la supuesta herencia que le dejó su padre. Carmina le dice a Pedro que hable con su abuela para que ayude a Genaro, pero a doña Ofelia no le interesa en lo más mínimo salvar a su yerno de la ruina. Javier en tanto, no piensa irse del pueblo sin antes conseguir de Julieta lo que tanto desea. Esa noche que quiso abusar de la muchacha, casi estaba a punto de hacerlo pero afortunadamente llegó Gabriel como caído del cielo y le propina tremenda golpiza.

     Laberintos de pasión. Canal 34, lunes a viernes, 9:00 p.m. Javier tuvo que irse del pueblo sin lograr su cometido... seducir a Julieta, aunque sí logró que muchas cosas se descubrieran acerca de Nadia lo cual afectaría de alguna forma su relación con Pedro. Nadia comienza a sentir los síntomas del embarazo, y por supuesto, atribuye, o mejor dicho... desea que ese hijo sea de Pedro para poder retenerlo a su lado. Doña Ofelia no estaba muy contenta con esa noticia ni mucho menos Pedro, sin embargo el muchacho escucha los consejos de su abuela para que permanezca al lado de Nadia por ese hijo que no tiene la culpa de nada. Cuando Julieta se entera, decide terminar de una vez por todas sus sueños de ser feliz al lado de Pedro, pues un hijo es algo muy serio para ella, pues sabe la necesidad de tener un hogar y una familia. Pedro piensa esperar hasta que nazca el bebé y ya después decidirá qué es lo que hará, mientras tanto la idea de Cristóbal no le parece muy descabellada... saber si en realidad el hijo que espera Nadia es de él o de su hermano. Sin esperar mucho tiempo, Pedro hace cita con un médico ya que la misma Nadia ignora cuanto tiempo tiene de embarazo, sin embargo justo horas antes de la cita, Nadia presenta una hemorragia. Pedro se preocupa, mas no por Nadia, sino por su hijo, pero para ella es lo de menos... lo que importa es que su marido está ahí, junto con ella y no tras Julieta. Por otro lado, Gabriel creyó que después de tanto tiempo sin ver a Julieta y de haberse comprometido con Marisa, pudo olvidarse de su amor de hombre por su protegida, se dio cuenta que no era así. Julieta, en un momento de confusión de sentimientos, busca a Gabriel y le pide que se den una oportunidad para amarse y lo besa apasionadamente. Gabriel se queda aún más confundido. Las cosas quedarán muy claras cuando Rocío, sin pensar en las consecuencias, le dice a Gabriel frente a Marisa que Julieta le confesó que lo ama. Para esto, cuando Julieta se entera, se molesta mucho con Rocío y le dice que Matilde tiene razón y lo mejor es no asistir más al consultorio. Tanto doña Ofelia como Gabriel, piden ayuda a Benjamín para que ayuden legalmente a Magdalena y pueda sacar a Rosendo de su casa y de su vida. Diego por su parte, se siente muy contento de que Benjamín ya sepa que son hermanos, y sólo espera que puedan tratarse como tal. Genaro aún tiene esperanzas de que Nadia pueda ayudarlo económicamente, por eso habla con Arturo y le pide que lo siga representando como su abogado. Este le dice que lo hará, pero todo dentro de la ley, pues desde que murió Alejandra, el hombre ha cambiado mucho. Nota de La Opinión. Categoria: Espectáculos

Después comprendí que a buen entendedor, pocas palabras".  La actriz contó que para acoplarse a su personaje de Estrellita, estuvo varios días en Ciudad Bolívar, un sector muy pobre en Bogotá, viendo cómo vivía la gente pobre de corazón pero ricos de espíritu, lo que le valió "para armar el perfil humano de mi Estrella", finalizó Sabino.

Si Cristóbal supiera igual que Genaro que Nadia estuvo casada con Javier, el supuesto abogado del padre de ella, quizás también la odiaría como doña Ofelia, a quien nunca le ha simpatizado.

    La Opinion. 12/10/00. Solo telenovelas. Laura M. López Laberintos de pasión KMEX Canal 34, lunes a viernes, 9:00 p.m. No hubo forma de convencer a Cristóbal para que desistiera irse con Nadia. El sabía mejor que nadie el error tan grave que estaba cometiendo, sin embargo Cristóbal les aseguró que todo iba a estar bien. Por otro lado, de nuevo Julieta sufre la pérdida de su hogar, tal como sucediera la primera vez. En esta ocasión Gabriel estaba con ella, pero eso no evitó al criminal prenderle fuego a la casa con toda la intención de eliminar a ambos. Afortunadamente Pedro llegaba en esos momentos, y escucha los gritos de Julieta que sacara a Gabriel, quien estaba desmayado por el golpe que recibió en la cabeza. Pedro no pensó en el peligro que corría, sólo sabía que la mujer que amaba necesitaba su ayuda. Lauro le aconseja a Gabriel que avise al comandante, pero él prefiere esperar hasta el día siguiente. El regresa al lugar de los hechos y encuentra una mancuernilla con las iniciales de Genaro Valencia. Con esta prueba decide acusarlo directamente. Cuando Genaro iba a ser detenido, la misma doña Ofelia comprobó que efectivamente esa noche él no había salido de casa para nada. Aunque no cabría la posibilidad de que hubiese enviado a alguien a hacerlo. Mientras tanto, pocos días después, Rosendo también era detenido acusado de la muerte de Marisa Cervantes, ya que se comprobó que la sangre encontrada en su pañuelo pertenecía a ella. Sin embargo, el hombre al verse sin salida, toma rápido su pistola y la apunta sobre el comandante, a quien toma como rehén mientras escapa. Una vez en las afueras del pueblo, golpea al policía y huye sin que nadie lo encuentre. Rosendo le envía una nota a Carmina para que escapen juntos de San Vicente. Ella aún se rehusaba a hacerlo, pero al ver que no tenía otra escapatoria pues también se descubrió que ella tuvo que ver en la muerte de Marisa. Para esto, Pedro se entera que Gabriel es su verdadero padre y el porqué Sofía nunca se lo dijo. Era tanto el miedo hacia Genaro, que prefirió callar y doña Ofelia hizo lo mismo, pero por respeto a su hija muerta. Aunque ahora era necesario que se supiera. Genaro jamás se imaginó ser engañado de esa manera y le jura a Mateo en acto de confesión que todos la van a pagar muy caro. Mateo no puede decirles la verdad, pero si advierte a Gabriel que debe irse del pueblo antes de que algo grave suceda. Antes de que todo esto sucediera, Nadia y Cristóbal se hospedaron en el hotel del pueblo para el día siguiente irse a otro lado. El plan de Cristóbal salió tal como se lo propuso y ahora Nadia estaba detenida por intento de fraude y asesinato. El muchacho logró que Nadia los dejara en paz y quizás en ello iba un poco de venganza por todo lo que esa mujer hizo con él y su familia, pero sobre todo con su hijo que no tuvo oportunidad de nacer. Genaro descubre que su traidora mujer y Rosendo quieren escapar del pueblo y de su ira, pero ya era demasiado tarde... a Genaro no le importaba una muerte más y con su auto empuja el de Rosendo quien cae en un barranco. Carmina logró escapar del coche pero no de Genaro, quien termina matándola.

    Solo telenovelas Laura M. López [summary of previous week] Laberintos de pasión KMEX Canal 34, lunes a viernes, 9:00 p.m. ULTIMOS CAPITULOS. Genaro no tenía alternativa... terminaba de una vez con toda la gente que de alguna forma le cobraría tarde o temprano el daño que les había causado o definitivamente él terminaba con su propia vida. Y así lo hizo... frente a Pedro y Julieta, a Genaro sólo le bastó un tiro de su pistola... que más daba... lo había perdido todo... el rancho, su mujer y por último, el hijo que tanto adoraba y de quien se sentía tan orgulloso que resultó ser hijo del hombre que tanto odiaba en su vida. Pedro quiso evitar esa tragedia y desde el fondo de su corazón le dijo que a pesar de todo, él seguía siendo su padre, pero Genaro ya lo había decidido... había tomado a Julieta como rehén pero finalmente de pronto volteó el arma hacia él y disparó. A pesar de que habían pasado varias horas, Julieta aún sentía la sangre caliente de Genaro en su piel y la mano de él aferrándose a su pierna cuando caía lentamente en su último aliento de vida. Pedro en cambio tomó a Genaro en sus brazos y caminando lentamente lo llevó hasta El Castillo para dejarlo en el mismo lugar, en el cual hace más de 20 años Gabriel hiciera lo mismo con Sofía cuando la encontró muerta en el río. A Cristóbal le dolió la muerte de su padre pero tal vez fue lo mejor para todos. Genaro y Carmina fueron sepultados el mismo día uno al lado del otro, y sólo la gente del rancho y el padre Mateo acompañaron a la familia en este momento tan trágico. Para esto, Gabriel había comprado la mitad del rancho que perdiera Genaro, aunque no sabía todavía que haría con ella. Pues una vez que se casara con Julieta se irían de San Vicente. Sin embargo, la boda no llegó a realizarse. Al ver las lágrimas de Julieta, que no eran precisamente de felicidad, Gabriel decidió dejarla libre para que buscara a Pedro, quien era en realidad a quien amaba. Pedro por su parte, estaba a punto de irse del pueblo para olvidarse de ella. Julieta hizo lo que todos le aconsejaron, pero más que nada lo que le dictaba su corazón... buscar a Pedro y decirle que deseaba compartir con él el resto de su vida. Pocos días después Pedro esperaba a Julieta frente al altar, quien caminaba del brazo de Gabriel, que llegó a última hora para darle su bendición. Cristóbal y Rocío se hicieron novios y Rebeca y Benjamín pronto se casarían también. Diego decidió entrar al seminario siguiendo su vocación sacerdotal mientras que Sara y Arturo se daban otra oportunidad para ser felices. En tanto Lauro y Magdalena ahora sí podrían ser felices pues Rosendo no les haría ningún daño, ya que al igual que Nadia estaban pagando su culpa en la cárcel.
