Marian Rivera's "Carmela" is Inspired to the Italian Film, "Malena"

It seems that the title "Remake Queen" fits to the Kapuso Primetime Queen Marian Rivera. Well, after "Temptation of Wife" which is a remake of the hit Korean drama, everybody thinks that her new TV series "Carmela" will be an original one. But definitely, the TV series is an adaptation of an Italian film called "Malena" which starred Monica Bellucci.

According to reports, "Malena" which is an Italian film released in the year 2000 is a story of a woman named Malena  who provokes sensual awakenings in a group of adolescent boys. She is the most beautiful woman in their town therefore all men were attracted to her. But at the same time, all women hated and envied her!

Now, do you think that "Carmela" is a rift-off or a remake of the said film?! Will the two have the same story plot?! Well, let's wait and see as "Carmela" premieres in GMA Telebabad this coming January 27, 2014. (
