Margarita Rosa de Francisco,
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
Corazon Salvaje has been a phenomenon worldwide ever since its release in 1993! Personally, after watching it, I gave up watching any other soap opera -the comparison hurt too much.
And it's great not just because of the technical achievements that the series brings with it (although for a Latin production, it has marked a plus), but I would rather say it's the quality of the acting that impresses the most and the coherence of the story. No useless talk, no useless crying as often happens in the Spanish soap operas, no overacting. The soap opera genre has a set of particular situations it works with (like infidelities, pregnancy etc), but Maria Zarattini (the adapter of the Corazon Salvaje books by Caridad Bravo Adams) managed to create something original and truly surprising. In a personal note, she has used the dialogues in other productions she has worked later on, but that is a sign that she could not entirely escape Corazon Salvaje's magic.
All and each of the actors involved in the project simply gave their best. Eduardo Palomo (RIP) portrays Juan Del Diablo with so much charisma, dedication and talent that makes his character magic. This role transformed Eduardo Palomo into one of the hugest Latin Personalities and even today years after his death, he is still considered as one of the best actors. His co-stars Edith Gonzalez and Ana Colchero, besides being such incredibly beautiful women, make the demonstrations of being great actresses as well. They can be sensual, romantic, vulnerable, true women indeed in a fictional context! Although romance is the main subject, the soap opera speaks about other important things such as the position of women in the society and finding your true self.
Corazon Salvaje has impressed audiences in Italy (where has been broadcast over 20 times), Spain, United States, Venezuela, Romania to name just a few!
In conclusion I would like to say that if Corazon Salvaje had had the chance of being produced in English, I would be today THE SHOW! It's a MUST SEE!
