"I was fortunate to watch this on TV in 2006, and it's a wonderful story. I'm so glad they didn't trim out the best romantic scenes in the DVD set. The scenery is absolutely beautiful. The storyline centers on the two main character's Miranda and Alejandro. Alejandro comes to take revenge on her father, and of course falls in love with Miranda. The story takes you through uncovering a mystery of the past that led Alejandro to take revenge and changes everyone's lives for better and for worse. They did capture a lot of the jaw dropping secret revels that help piece the implications of the past. It did capture the essences of Berta's troubled pasted, but not so much of Cesar demented mind.
The honeymoon (of course!!)
Berta and Guapo (I know it's a weird story that wasn't quite developed on the DVD)
The deathbed (I won't tell you who, can't spoil it but get out the tissues on this one)
And the end - what heals the wounds of love?
The details on Amazon indicated 1 Disc, but it's actually 4 discs. The first three are double sided and the last DVD is a single. They could have made the last DVD a double side and given us a bit more. There were two small repeat scenes (small ones you might not noticed). I think one was on DVD 1 Side 2 and DVD 2 Side 1. There were a couple of choppy spots created during editing process but other than that it plays well and I didn't have any technical issues.
The DVD 13 hours 2 minutes. It aired on TV with a run time of 97 hours 30 minutes (without commercials). So the DVD is ~14% of the actual TV runtime, which is actually pretty decent compared to other Telenovelas on DVD.
So what didn't make it to the DVD...
A lot of the Juan/Renata love story struggles
Fabricio/Cesar family story
Juan's family and Juan's conflicts/issues
Cesar and his manipulations of Renata, Lizania (half-sister to Alejandro) and Nuria (granddaughter to Tomasa)
Alejandro and Liliana entanglement
Miranda's rise to success with the chocolate business
Great show but the two final discs were unviewable

"I really enjoyed this show. The editing was good and the subtitles worked well. But I was horribly disappointed that the last 2 discs with the final episodes did not work at all. My DVD could not read them. This is not the first time that a DVD produced by Televisa contains a disc that is simply unworkable. The quality control is not working so the buyer should be beware and Televisa check your Discs before packaging them."
