Maria La Del Barrio one of Thalia and Televisa's biggest hits finally makes it to DVD. Was it worth the wait? NO. For those of you who fell in love with this series when it first hit the air waves in 1996 you will be in for quite a shock. This is a butchered version of the original story.

It really makes no sense in releasing these famous Televisa telenovelas if they are not going to be faithful to their original presentation.

The butchering done to these episodes in inexcusable! The storyline makes absolutely no sense now as it jumps to plot point to plot point. It's laughable. Actually it's infuriating.

If you're looking forward to finally having Maria and Zoraya's infamous cat fight inside the opera house parking garage you can forget about it --- it's been cut and is only referred to in a brief flashback! Actually Maria's first sit down dinner with the family is also gone along with a lot of other scenes. UNFORGIVABLE!

Granted we're not talking about "Gone With the Wind" here, but still MariMar, Maria La Del Barrio, Maria Mercedes and Rosalinda are four of Thalia's biggest and best in the telenovela genre and have garnered fans on an international level.

It's an injustice that just to make a quick buck these shows are being rushed out on DVD in such a careless fashion.

People who have never seen these shows to begin with are going to think this is what was originally aired on television. It is not. Not by a long shot.

Televisa needs to get their act together and release these shows in their COMPLETE, UNEDITED ORIGINAL VERSIONS or just quit scamming loyal fans with this inferior product.

I remember watching this novela with my family when I was a child. My mother recently bought the dvd for my grandmother, and the whole family was excited to sit down and watch it, especially me because of the English subtitles. I quickly became incredibly confused because the editing was so oddly choppy. I understand that the cinemetography would be on the more amateur side, since this is an older novela and a soap opera after all, but this seemed like something more.
I looked up video clips of the show on youtube, and to my dismay, the clips of the same scenes on my dvd had several minutes more to them than on my dvd. Who ever edited this disc hacked away at all the important parts that link this into a coherent story. Please, someone come out with the real show!!! This is ridiculous!
So, yes to Maria la del Barrio, NO NO NO TO THIS EDITION! AGHHHH!

Format: DVD
NOTE: MOST Novelas have ENGLISH subtitles including this one.
The 1995 soap, "Maria la del Barrio" (Maria from the Barrio) was very popular although not as sucessful as "Marimar" the year before. This was the third and last soap in which Thalia played a poor girl named Maria. After all three MARIA soaps had circeld the world, a census showed that they had been viewed by more than a billion people!
STORY PLOT: Maria Ernandes was a scavenger who lived in a Mexican barrio (neighborhood) on the outskirts of the big city with her Godmother, who suddenly dies, leaving Maria to fend for herself. The local priest had been asked by the godmother to help Maria when she was gone and so he asked one of his benefactors Don Fernando if he might employ her as a servant. Maria, wearing torn and stinky clothes, is brought to the De La Vega mansion, where she quickly meets Don Fernando's drunk son, Luis. She falls head over heels for him, despite his lack of respect and order. As a reult, Maria becomes the primary target of Fernando's neice, Soraya Montenegro, who suppoesdly "loves" Luis. Although Luis first marries the ambitious, possessive and bitter Soraya, who is unfaifthfull to him, he eventually divorces her soon after and then marries Maria. Soraya is later thrown out of the mansion due to her constant threats against Maria and her own family. As the wife of one of the most richest and respectable families, Maria is well educated. Months later she is with child. When Luis sees his brother and Maria embracing, fueld and blinded by jealousy he abandons her and goes to Europe, where she quickly followed him. She tried convincing him that he had the wrong idea about her and that the child she was going to have was Luis, not his brother. But Luis furiously throws Maria out, refusing to believe her.

This DVD pack has a good video quality, and it has the main theme ("María la del Barrio", by Thalía), but I don't know who made this horrible edition. They just cut important scenes from de story. If you didn't see the soap opera on television, it will be difficult for you to understand, because everything happens so fast.

And that's not the worst thing. They tried to replace the original score. I can't explain why!. It's so difficult to believe that Televisa can't pay for the rights of the music. You can't understand many of the dialogues because of that. It's like a noise.

If you like this soap opera, just don't buy this item. I'm a fan of Thalía, and now I know why she never says anything about this DVD's. They are not a good product. I give two stars to it because of the song, the video quality, and the DVD cover.
