20 DVD website... check it out!!!

"I absolutely love Corazon Salvaje, ever since it came out when I was a little girl. I was ecstatic when they replayed it two years later, which is when I decided to record it. Unfortunately, those vhs's are horrible to watch! I recently bought the DVD, the condensed version, and like others I agree that it is chopped too much! There are a lot of subplots and scenes that I remember watching and miss. We never meet Cesar Evora's niece and sister-in-law at all, we miss the romances of secondary characters and miss out on a lot of details (we don't really find out that Monica{Edith Gonzalez} is pregnant at the end)... essentially, a lot of details are cut out. I also bought Amor Real and Alborada and am also feeling the same as with Corazon Salvaje.

That led me to research on buying the complete novela. I found a great website called "Novelas R Us" and they have so many different complete novelas on DVDs. I just finished buying the Corazon Salvaje one and can't wait till I receive it. It is on 20 DVD's so I know it will have a lot more detail than this one. I am now planning to buy all my favorite novelas. Although it is 65 dollars (free shipping though) it is so worth it.

Corazon Salvaje should be enjoyed in its entirety and that is what I am going to do"
A show in fragments...

"Corazon Salvaje (Wild Heart) is my favorite telenovela of all time. It is one of, if not the most romantic love story Televisa has ever produced. The recreation of turn-of-the-twentieth-century Mexico -- with the scenery, the wardrobe, and the sets -- makes this telenovela a big eyeful. The great cast is also an eyeful, especially the leads, Edith Gonzalez and the gorgeous Eduardo Palomo. Palomo was such a wonderful actor, so gorgeous and talented. I couldn't keep my eyes off him. I was saddened when I heard about his unfortunate demise a couple of years ago. He was very young when he had that fatal heart attack, in his forties. His Juan del Diablo is one memorable hero and he made this telenovela one of the best of all time. I've worn out my tapes rewinding my favorite scenes, which is why I bought the DVD. The DVD, however, is horrible. You watch the show in fragments. There are abrupt cuts from one scene to another and I would've been confused if I hadn't already seen this. Some of my favorite scenes were cut off! Televisa, as usual, released a box set containing some clips of the show instead of the whole show. The video and audio are horrid. I thought I was watching a VHS tape instead of a DVD. And to make things worse, they don't use the original music score. Instead, they use the same generic crap they used with Amor Real and other DVD box sets. Ugh! If you're a big fan of Corazon Salvaje, you may want to own this. If you've never seen this show and are curious about it, then I suppose you should give it a whirl, but don't be surprised if you get frustrated as you're taken from abrupt scene to another."
Great Telenovela, Good DVD

"Corazon salvaje is the third TV version of one of the classic Mexican telenovelas (soap operas) with a prototypical plot involving virginal and whorish sisters, illegitimate children, a conniving mother, and revenge. As in previous film and TV incarnation, this version is a "who's who" of Mexican beauties, and all four leads (Edith Gonzalez, Eduardo Palomo, Ana Colchero and Ariel Lopez Padilla) have never looked better onscreen.

Considering that they've edited multiple chapters into a mere 4 1/2 hours, I thought they did an excellent editing job, even building suspense to make you want to turn the DVD after the end of side one.

Unlike most telenovelas nowadays, Corazon salvaje has a fairly simple main plotline and not as many supporting characters and subplots going on, so you get the gist of what really matters: the ups-and-downs concerning the romance and revenge storyline between good sister Monica (Gonzalez), slutty sister Aimee (Colchero), gentlemanly Andres (Lopez)and his smoldering bastard half-brother Juan del Diablo (Palomo). The story is less campy and tongue-in-cheek than contemporary novelas, basically its a televised Harlequin romance in Spanish with optional subtitles.

If you have memories of the original, you may be disappointed because of the short length, but if you're satisfied with the main plotline or are a "newbie" to this classic Mexian novela, you'll be more than satisfied."
Way too short

"While this abridgement provides the core, it misses a couple of major subplots and all of the subtleties of this classic love story. There is a reason that this story has been done six times for its audience (once on radio, twice as a feature film, and three times as a TV series) and while I don't know how the story changed between all the versions, the 1993 series that was edited down to this DVD is regarded as a major classic by critics of the genre. I do hope that Televisa considers issuing a longer version (not less than 20 hours) that includes the humorous moments and the delicious catfight between Aimee and Sofia.

I would recommend this DVD for viewers of the original who didn't tape and keep every single episode (which I did) and who want to remember some of the key moments that were heavily promoted on the network in the teaser ads: Juan's first meetings with Aimee and Monica, the two weddings, and the two hottest love scenes between Juan and Monica (including the wedding night). While these scenes illustrate the incredible sex appeal of the late Eduardo Palomo, we miss their context. When I saw the original series back in the day it felt like I was watching a romance novel.

Thankfully, the original music is intact. I truly wish that rather than using a popular song as a theme (and changing the title of the story to accomodate it), the producers would stick to having original title music composed for new productions, as they did here."
