HASH(0xa478bf6c) out of 5 stars extremely disappointed with editing Dec 16 2006
By Pascale D. Bazin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I watched this show when it aired, I wanted to see it again, unfortunately, too much has been taken out, the relationship between the characters was the main attraction for me and half of the cast was barely shown. If I hadn't seen the original, a lot of what happened in the edited version wouldn't have made any sense, As it is, I spend most of the time explaining to others who had not seen the show why certain events too place etc... A word should be sent by the creators of the novelas that their work has been downgraded to incomprehension. This is not the first novela that I have bought and found wanting , but this time they went beyond editing, some scenes were switched around in order for the story to make sense, and some relationships vital to the story were obliterated.

HASH(0xa46b9cb4) out of 5 stars Excellent release April 16 2008
By sandiego33 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Telemundo/Universal put together an excellent release. Yes, it is edited down to 12 hours like all novellas that are being released, but i personally do not mind as all the fluff/unnecessary scenes are cut that drag out the novellas for 6 months.
Televisa/Xenon's releases make 2.5 hr long discs with no breaks, making it a little difficult to find where you left off, unless you leave the disc in the DVD player. It is like splicing together 4 episodes of Ugly Betty with no breaks inbetween. Not here. Telemundo/Universal formed new "episodes" to break it up and take you back to the menu. I like this alot better.
This is an excellect novela, the actors have great chemistry, and the production is top notch. This is one of the better novellas I have seen. Enjoy !!!!!

By Jesus A. Perez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Its missing to many scenes and the story between caracters gets lost. the story about second caracters is ignore. I was really disapointed. I wish they would release this title incluting the entire air time.
I was going to buy the other titles but when I saw how they chopped this title I am not going to unless they have the complete version.

HASH(0xa486b954) out of 5 stars Dual Subtitles/Captions Good Tool for Learning Spanish, if censored March 13 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This is actually a 4 DVD abridgment presentation of a ~ 105 hour Spanish language telenovela. The 5th DVD has things like interviews of actors & bloopers. It has large lettered English subtitles, which can be turned on or off. In addition, Spanish captions can be displayed if you set your TV set (monitor) to display (analog) captions. The producer, Telemundo (a Spanish language TV network) airs telenovelas with both English & Spanish captions, which can be selected on one's TV set (monitor). If you activate Spanish captions, then the Spanish words will be displayed over the English subtitles, both on the screen at the same time. Myself, I use 2 monitors side by side with a DVD player so that I can have English on one & Spanish on the other. The recording quality of what I have seen thus far is excellent.

The idea of abridging this telenovela is not bad. Judging from this show & from another telenovela by the same author, Julio Jimenes wastes a lot of time (for me) by first having an action scene or a primary discussion scene, then having the same thing one already saw, repeated over by minor characters, talking about it. The repetitions to me are boring, but some evidently like them. There is a lot of time wasted in the original watching people dancing, hearing minor characters blather at the mouth or quarrel, seeing repeated entradas (title screens, etc.). A character may drive somewhere & time is wasted with lengthy views of the person driving. If a ghost plays the piano on different nights, the production may take up a lot of time playing the same music played over & over, while you watch persons in the mansion comment on it & walk to gather outside the haunted room numerous times. "Let's go check out the piano." "No, don't dare." "But we must." "No, we dassan't."

If you want to see it all, about 99 percent of this telenovela is available to view on line free from YouTube & Dailymotion.com. However, YouTube has an abundance of capitulos w/ missing parts: It may have cap 24-1 & 24-4, but not 24-2 & 24-3. The quality is better on Youtube than on Dailymotion, but many parts are missing from YouTube. Daily motion has a majority of the episodes (captulos) in whole or joined in doublets. The problem with dailymotion is that it is hard to search to find what it has. Usually the best way to locate a capitulo is to use this string (say for episode 124) on google search: "El Cuerpo del Deseo124" site:dailymotion.com Note how some episodes have a space between Deseo and the capitulo number, others run it without space like Deseo124. In rare instances there were small parts that I could only find on a site that presents this telenovela with Russian lip synch -- so I could watch, but not hear Spanish for those parts. For the Russian version, go to serialsonline a dotnet. See the comments section on this review.

I don't know where you can find ECDD online with captions or subtitles (captions & subtitles are not the same, incidentally, but similar). There are sellers of telenovelas DVD's online; but I only know one source that has DVD's with the captions recorded. The source for captioned DVD's probably has to be American.

Incidentally, Telenovelas are not Soap Operas. Generally Telenovelas are like novels put on screen. They have a conflict, resolution, & end to the story, usually lasting 6 months to one year (not unending).

The main drawback to this telenovela is that it has a few pornographic scenes. The idea is that this guy has a Cuerpo del Deseo (a Body of Lust) which women cannot resist. It is produced in the style of "Magic Realism," which is a genre of telenovela in which magic is employed or the supernatural.


This one is essentially, IMHO, a tragedy. An old man marries a young woman; then he dies. At the same time a young man seems to die also, but probably goes into "catatonia," which in telenovelas means he seems dead, but isn't. When that happens, the old goat who dies has his spirit leave his corpse & go into the body of the young man who just collapsed. So the old goat suddenly finds himself in the body of the young man, inside a coffin on the way to burial. He busts out of the coffin -- then fun & games follow. The young man was a brute, ignorant, country farm worker. The old goat had been refined & intelligent, a rich business man & master of the piano.
