Is It Any Good?

This dark thriller, which is dubbed in English on Netflix, is full of twists and turns designed to keep viewers engaged until the last moment. It's also very much a soap opera, thanks to its multiple plot lines, ensemble cast, and relationship drama. Its premise, the essence of which stems from Colombia's history of organ trafficking and transplant tourism, is both disturbing and morbid, especially since it allows viewers to see what exactly happens to Valería once she is abducted. The strange love triangle that emerges as a result of these events only adds to this. Meanwhile, The Marked Heart shoves a combination of stories about organized crime, romance, political corruption, mystical fantasy, and amateur detective work into a handful of episodes, making it feel very dense. Some may find all of this to be too much of a stretch, and will find it hard to tune in to. Others will simply view it as a contemporary approach to the traditional telenovela and just go with it.
