the secret appeal of marimar.

*
After getting home a bit earlier than usual, I had dinner while my lola was watching tv.  I was able to catch a bit of the localized Marimar — and I found the secret appeal of Marimar!  It’s a Jose Rizal story!

Marimar’s transition into Bella Aldama (did I get this right?) directly parallels Crisostomo Ibarra’s fall and emergence as Simoun.  So yeah, maybe that’s why pinoys like watching the show — it resonates with the theme of a person emerging as a slightly better version of himself to get back at his oppressors, flawed only in the way that there’s no going back.

(Plus, people seem to have this notion that it has to do with the lowcut baby doll dress.)
