this is a great novela!! Yadhira Carrillo as both Cordelia and Carlota she is great as both of them and juan soler is a good leading man. The storyline is good as well. Two women who look exactly alike and are in love with the same man and one of the ladies tries to take the place of the women is peer genius. I hope they release juan soler's other novela angela. He waseal good in that too. But enjoy!!!

Overall, I thought that this telenovela was well done, the plot was expertly executed, and Juan Soler and Yadhira Carrillo did a fantastic job in their respective roles.
Like a previous customer said, Yadhira Carrillo has that uncanny ability to cry overflowing tears at the snap of a finger. She played Carlota very realistically, conveying to the viewers the suffering and the depression the character felt. In portraying Cordelia she switched gears and played a conniving and superficial character, much the opposite of the sweet and docile Carlota. As always Jacqueline Andere played marvelously as a villain, cold-hearted mother and killer, as well as Sergio Sendel as another villain who uses his charms to lure innocent people for his own perverted use. Juan Soler did an outstanding job, especially with those scenes when the character of Alvaro was quite confused between Carlota and Cordelia. I believed that he was going to go crazy because he didn't know what was really happening, who died and who was still alive.
Now...here comes the spoilers...so an alert here for those that haven't watched it:
Unfortunately I didn't get to watch "La Otra" in its entirety on Univision, and this was the very first time I watched it. So, I knew it was going to be very much edited to have this telenovela on 3 DVDs. That being said, although I did follow the storyline, and knew what was happening, I felt that there were some subplots and characters that were missing. Although I must say that I googled "La Otra", and read some well-written summaries, and knew that there were some parts missing. But, nonetheless, here are some things that stood out for me:
1) I knew that in some way Roman Guillen (Carlota's half-brother) would be involved with Bernarda (Carlota's mean-spirited mother).

I buy and watch Mexican Telenovelas as a student of Spanish so I know them all. Though the story line is a bit chopped up in various places in "La Otra" from the editing process.... this is still a great novela with a great story and very interesting to watch with excellent acting. To top it off, this is one of the few novelas that has a soundtrack that actually doesn't suck. The music and sound track are very well done and not irritating like so many others. If you were going to have a collection of 5 telenovelas out of the hundreds that exist, this should be one of the five.

First of all I want to say that this is my favorite soap opera of all time. The other two that I love are Angela and Apuesta por un amor. This was a very clever story, full of surprises and discovery. I agree this was Juan Soler's best leading role. Yadhira Carrillo was amazing. She gave a extraordinary personal touch to her two characters, and could at the same time show the humanity of Carlota even when she was taking Cordelia's place. Jacqueline Andere was one of the smartest villains I have ever seen in a telenovela.

The problem with the DVD is the editing. They focus mostly in the story of Alvaro and Carlota and cut off many of the secondary character stories. There was not much of the romance of Bernarda and Roman, the story of Cordelia's family was totally deleted, when Carlota became Cordelia they were many scenes in which you could have been caught, for example the dog scene (Cordelia did not like dogs), the scene when Carlota is drowning (Cordelia could swim). These were the funny scenes of the story and they are gone. Also, the DVD does not cover Regina's disease, and does not show when she dies. For people that never watched the show it will be confusing to hear some things when they did not have the proper background to understand. And finally, the DVD did not show Bernarda's ending which I think was a big mistake. The ending is disturbing, because after all that she did, she escapes and in the last scene she is shown in the beach flirting with young guys.

The soap opera is the best, the DVD did not do a good job. I still recommend it.

I don't speak Spanish but this is ANOTHER original story. The actress is awesome and I've seen her before in the movie RUBI. This is the first time I've seen the leading male actor and I like him. The bad guys are good too (they were also bad guys in other movies).

The struggles are there and you keeps you thinking how can this situation be solved, right down the last minute!

I love how the camera moves and follows the actors in a continuous scene.

This is the BEST of all the telenovelas I've seen so far (I've seen about a dozen).

Simply AWESOME, AWESOME, AWESOME!

El Producto me llego Mal, los Discos Estan Rayados, el Dvd 2 se congela la imagen y se tranca en varias partes, es muy molesto. Y el Disco 3 del Lado 2 no se ve casi nada, sobre todo en el Comienzo y en el Final de la Telenovela. Al Limpiar los Discos con una Franela Nueva, Sin Uso, logre que se viera un poco mas, pero los Discos Estan Rayados.
En cuanto a el Resumen de la Telenovela Me Gusto, aunque podria haber sido muchisimo mejor.
El Final de Cordelia esta editado, no se ve cuando ella corta la luz de la casa y Adrian sale afuera a ver que pasa, llama a la Empleada (Simona) y ella le dice que seguramente alguno de los trabajadores bajo la llave sin querer, y eso lo entiendo, porque en el Final esa mujer tiene gran importancia, ya que es la que lleva el maletin que Bernarda le pidio a Adrian a cambio de la combinacion de la caja fuerte, escena que por supuesto no esta en el Dvd, por eso las quitaron.
Estoy Muy Molesto porque sacaron mucho del Final, podrian haber dejado un poco mas, un capitulo de mas de 40 Minutos lo Resumen en menos de 20 Minutos.
Faltan Muchas Escenas, sobre todo cuando Bernarda se le escapa a Adrian al sacar el dinero del banco y el la persigue en un taxi, la llama al celular y le dice que ya llamo a la Policia, que les dijo todo lo sabe de ella, que le conviene fugarse con el, luego los dos van a la terraza de un edificio, en el cual discuten por el dinero y Adrian se lo trata de arrebatar y se les cae el maletin. Despues pactan un arreglo, en el que Bernarda le promete dar la combinacion de la caja fuerte de la casa siempre y cuando el le deje el otro maletin en el lugar que acordaron.
