Thalia's MARIMAR Released on DVD Just in Time for Valentine's Day

    SANTA MONICA, Calif., Feb. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- For the first time ever,
 and after millions of requests, Xenon Pictures and Televisa Home
 Entertainment bring to DVD one of the most beloved and enthralling novelas
 of all time, MARIMAR. MARIMAR is the second installation of the famed
 "Maria Trilogy" and provided its star, Mexican diva Thalia, an opportunity
 to play dual roles as both Marimar and Bella Perez. It also gained her a
 level of worldwide recognition never before seen in history.
     MARIMAR also stars heartthrob Eduardo Capetillo ("Baila Conmigo",
 "Alcanzar Una Estrella") and Chantal Andere ("Destilando Amor", "Amor
 Real") and features an early appearance by award winning actor Fernando
 Colunga ("Alborada", "Abrazame Muy Fuerte"). The telenovela is also the
 last one legendary actor Tito Guizar, who played Marimar's adoring
 grandfather, appeared in before his passing.
     Originally airing on primetime in 1994, MARIMAR was filmed in various
 locations including the breathtaking city of Ixtapa, Zihuatanejo in Mexico.
 It was written by the acclaimed Ines Rodena ("Marimar", "Marisol") and
 directed by Beatriz Sheridan ("Maria la del Barrio", "La Usurpadora").
 After its release, the soap quickly became a smash hit breaking audience
 records in the United States, Mexico, and Philippines among many other
 countries. Its success was in part due to the soap's exploration of family,
 relationships, love, passion and socio-economic class issues. MARIMAR's wit
 and warmth won it a following of critics and viewers that bridged the
 generational and gender divide in more than 150 countries worldwide.
     The 3-disc DVD set, with more than 10 hours of content, is in Spanish
 with English subtitles. MARIMAR is available at all major retail and online
 stores, with a suggested retail price of $24.98.
     Marimar is a beautiful young girl who lives by the sea with her elderly
 grandparents. Because of her family's poverty, she is forced to steal food
 from the estate of the wealthy Santibanez family. Marimar is caught by the
 foreman, and when she resists his advances, Sergio, the spoiled son of the
 house, comes to her rescue. Realizing that Marimar has fallen in love with
 him, Sergio gets an idea: His parents are withholding half of his
 inheritance until he is married, and he can use Marimar to both placate and
 shame them. Not only will he receive his entire inheritance, but he can
 humiliate his parents by making "the dirty girl from the beach" their
 daughter-in-law. But the abuse Marimar receives at the hands of her in-laws
 is more than she can bear, and she runs away to the city, hoping to escape
 the pain of her sham marriage. In the meantime, her birth father, an
 extremely wealthy man, is searching for his long lost daughter.
