La Mentira, alborada, corazon salvaje, etc. dvd

"I saw the originals broadcast on TV. Liked them so much I bought several of them from Amazon and Wal-Mart. But the DVD are edited SO MUCH, it's unbelievable. So much is chopped up. Can't follow the story line. These Spanish soaps when they make it on DVD get edited by up to 70% that it's a waste of money to purchase them. I won't do so again. Maybe if you the sellers mentioned to your distributors of this problem they would improve the editing. Keep the entire story but sell it for a bit more money. Many people would pay more to get the entire FULL story."

"I have waited so long for Alborada to be released on DVD! I feel like I have my old friends back again now. The actors are all terrific! I was completely addicted to this telenovela when it was on television and now I can even share it with my non-Spanish-speaking friends. This DVD version does have English subtitles. It has 4 DVDs with about 14 hours of viewing pleasure! If you like costume period dramas with suspense, action, romance and intrigue, Alborada is for you! While I'm sure everyone would love to see the entire, uncut Alborada, this edited version is very good. If you liked Amor Real, you'll love Alborada!"
Exceptional Telenovela

This is an excellent period novel. The actors are well convincing in their roles and there is plenty of action. Includes realistic sword fights and scenes filmed on location instead of in a studio. If you enjoy reading historical romance; you will just love this. Fernando Colunga does an outstanding performance. Daniela Roma shines as the villain in this. Besides the main story, there are several minor subplots between supporting actors which are also very intriguing. Watching the four male lead actors together reminded me a lot of "The Four Musketeers". The background musical score was quite appropriate and enhanced with singing by Placido Domingo. The DVD does have English subtitles for those who are still learning Spanish. I enjoyed it tremendously and wish they would do a sequel. American soap operas don't even come close to this. Highly recommended!

"I watched Alborada in Univision. I totally loved it. To such an extent that I bought it for my telenovelas collection. Well guess what? Placido Domingo (my idol) does not sing there,(unlike when I saw it in Univision at home) and story is very cut!!! What a dissapointment! Where can i buy an uncut version of telenovelas? Specially Alborada? Would appreciate your help. Anybody knows? Thanks,
