In The Queen Of Flow, the maxim “nothing can be more dangerous than a hurt woman” is proved (watch here).
This Colombian production shows how a woman who is unfairly arrested seeks revenge against the people who took everything she valued most in her life, even after almost 20 years.
This is the story we follow: while it has an ambience and acting that are very reminiscent of evening soap operas, the plot is full of surprising twists that refer to the best works of Netflix itself.
The production, made for Colombia’s Caracol Televisión channel, has the power to fascinate the viewer by bringing good interpreters for charismatic characters, who at the same time are quite ambiguous. Once you start watching The Queen Of Flow you will hardly be able to stop. It is a well-written soap, with clever and well-directed dialogues, which has its revenge story quite delineated, to the point of leaving us addicted waiting for the next chapter.
Seeing the opportunity to take revenge, Yeimy accepts. Now, in possession of a new identity, she intends to take revenge on people who, in addition to conspiring to her unjust imprisonment, cruelly killed her parents. As you can see, The Queen Of Flow has the typical plot of Latin American productions, always remembering a classic soap opera. And this is the greatest feature of this production: it embraces exaggeration to entertain without guilt.
At the same time, Juan Manuel Restrepo interprets Charly, the other end of this yarn, as an egocentric, mean and malicious person that accentuates these characteristics with the passing of time. He is a guy who does whatever it takes to succeed and maintain success, and his interpreter knows quite well how to make that impression, whether with an intimidating attitude or just with a look.
As forceful as it may seem at times, The Queen Of Flow earns many points by not giving in to the most clichéd drama when everything points to that path. Having an impressive and enigmatic season finale, we look forward to how this will end. We’ll only know it in the second season, which is yet to debut. Until then, let’s keep this story in mind, awaiting the next events with anticipation.
Synopsis 1: Revenge is a dish best served cold. But with a sizzling-hot soundtrack.
