Review: Violetta is bored with her life in Mexico, so she runs away to NY with a bag full of money. Pig is a writer obsessed with finding a story worth telling. Violetta will make him her guardian devil, her Diablo Guardian. She will cross every boundary, ignore the consequences and cash in on her body, until she finds herself trapped by Nefas. Violeta will try to escape and reclaim her freedom.”
The story is different from what we are used to be told. As chapters go by the story keeps turning to different ways which keeps you engaged and “picado” (in spanish). I haven’t read the book but I have heard opposing comments from people who have read it. Most of them say it is an amazing adaptation and is as good as the book since it has the same quotes and the characters were carefully chosen, like “el jardinerito”. Others mention they imagined Violetta as a more beautiful actress like Barbara Mori (who is not even mexican) rather than showing good looking girl that can be from a mexican middle class. I think the actress Paulina Gaitan and the other actors do a great job. I liked the fact they were not very well known (except for Pedro Alonso) because it makes the story more credible and unexpected.
I don’t agree with the purists: Diablo Guardián is a darn good adaptation of a novel that wouldn’t fit work as a movie.The actors are amazing, both Violetta (Paulina Gaitán) and Nefastófeles (Andrés Almeida) did an outstanding job. Also, let’s remember Xavier Velasco (the writer) chose Paulina and Pig, he helped with the casting. So, needless to say I love it. I think it’ll become a big event for Prime Video production and it’s already a high mark for Mexican TV.
