I love the Film but HATE the DVD

"The Film is great but what a disaster, watching this DVD!
I usually do not complain but this time I will send a letter to all involved with the making or distributing this DVD. The transfer quality is inferior to the print I saw in 1990. The subtitles are useless and they are only half sentences at times on the screen and you are wondering what you are reading. The soundtrack is off and it is irritating. If you are a fan of the author or the movie, get the DVD, but you must understand a little Spanish.
DVD not worth the price!

"This film IS beautifully filmed and acted. But the soundtrack is not synchronized with the actor's dialogue and it is frustrating to watch. Also, the English subtitles are messed up. Complete phrases and sentences are missing. If one is not fluent in Spanish, the English subtitles are of no use.
I was disappointed to have purchased an inferior product.
