Francisco Alcazar, a rich Mexican landowner, has two sons, Andres, born to his wife Sofia, and Juan, who's father has nothing to do with him. Francisco dies before he can legitimize Juan and the resentful Sofia casts the boy out. Fifteen years later, Andres returns from Europe to run the hacienda and is expected to marry Monica, the pious daughter of a countess. But he falls in love with Aimee, Monica's glamorous sister, unaware that she is having an affair with Juan. Juan becomes manager of Andres' estate, and finds an unexpected ally in Monica, who helps him improve conditions for the laborers. After Andres learns of Juan's affair with Aimee, a long, bloody feud begins that threatens the happiness of all four characters. Written by
I remember the first time I came across Corazon Salvaje I was 14 and I was watching it on an Italian TV channel. I had the chance to see the amazing cast live, invited by the same TV station and I fell in love with them and the production, so that I still find myself, 14 years later, watching it over and over again. This is due exclusively to the perfect acting (by the late and amazing Eduardo Palomo as Juan del Diablo, and Edith Gonzalez, as Monica De Altamira), the perfect scenery, the perfect cinematography, the perfect soundtrack, and my list can go on forever. It is the best TV production I have ever seen, and no other soap opera can ever reach the level Corazon Salvaje has set. I am terribly sorry producers didn't get to make the sequel, as the protagonist left this world far too young. But I will watch it all my life, never feeling I have had enough. It's a must see for every romantic in this world. And I guess, there will never be another remake of it, simply because there could never be anybody able to portray Juan and Monica as Eduardo and Edith did. PERFECT IN EVERY WAY.
