"This abridged version was just not right the first 3 sides deal with only the beginning and the last side with only the finale. no middle or anything in between. I own other novelas on dvd and i hadnt been ripped off yet until i got this. if you are contemplating on buying this product i suggest you save your money for something better."
What a low blow!

"This telenovela was Lucia's last starring role in a Mexican telenovela. From the year 2000 when Lucia was 49, it tells the story of Silvana who is a housewife to a male fashion designor. One night, knowing he is about to be promoted, he purposely positions his own wife at a party to be raped by his boss who has been lusting after her. Appalled at the discovery, she leaves him only to fall in the hands of a new lover....who just happens to be the rapists' son!
Trashy at best, it was a great telenovela...until you get to the last side of the disc. This company gave us the complete telenovela from the beginning and then the very end of it, completely cutting off the middle! How unproffesional on their behalf to bookend a story! It was so choppy and unfortunate that they couldn't take the time out to hire editors to compile the hightlits and present somewhat of a complete story to tell like the Televisa ones that have been released...OR release them in volumes like the ones Laguna Productions have been releasing (Azul Tequila, Las Juanas, Como En El Cine).
Otherwise from the lack of proffesionalism, the telenovela was entertaining and even watching the end, one can fill in their own blanks as to how the story might have been even though the viewer shouldn't have to. The producers should have known better.
So if you don't mind missing the middle, I say go for it and buy this DVD. It's certainly entertaining and the gorgeus Lucia Mendez looked human still at this point."
