Looks like Fuchsia 'Koralle' but the foliage looks more like Fuchsia denticulata

Fuchsia? I can not find a similar foliage.

I was watching Fuchsia triphylla but the foliage no end to convince.

This plant grows wild in a mountain, someone had told me Gesneriaceae family ... could it be?

The foliage may also be different due to environmental conditions ie. cold, sun, drought, etc. It would help to know the location where the photo was taken. A photo of the bloom more open would also help.

yes I do think it could also be a Gesneriad - could you post more flower pictures?

edited to say: on second look, the arrangement of the leaves in whorls of three and the shape of the fruit leads me back to Fuchsia.
