Editorial Reviews

Thalia ("Marimar", "Maria Mercedes", "Maria la del Barrio") stars as Rosalinda, a decent, beautiful young woman who works in a flower shop to pay for her education while aspiring to become a great singer. One day, while delivering flowers to a restaurant, she meets Fernando Jose Altamirano, a pianist and composer. Rosalinda instantly falls in love with Fernando Jose and tells him of her dream of becoming a singer. Though they are soon wed, circumstances force them apart. Maybe it’s because Rosalinda discovers that her birth mother, long believed to be dead is actually serving a prison sentence—for the murder of Francisco Jose’s father! The film also stars Fernando Carrillo ("Maria Isabel", "Primavera"), Angelica Maria ("La Antorcha Encendida"), Manuel Saval ("¡Vivan los ninos!") and Lupita Ferrer ("Soledad").

Here comes just a bit of a plot-spoiler, so please be advised:

STORY SUMMARY
The story begins 20 years before. Rosalinda's mother, Soledad [ANGÉLICA MARÍA], is sentenced to prison for a crime she did not commit, the murder of Jose F. Altamirano. While in jail, she gives birth to a daughter, but because of her circumstances, she implores her kind sister to take the child with her and raise it as her own. Her sister can do this because her husband is far away working, and can pass the baby off as their own later. Soledad of course begs for secrecy and so on. She is serving the jail sentence for husband, the man she married in secret because of their class differences--this man, although a good person, is cowardly for letting her take the blame.
So, Rosalinda [THALÍA] grows up and knows nothing, believing of course that her aunt is her mother.
Rosalinda has two sisters and a brother (in fact, cousins), Fedra [NORA SALINAS], Lucy, and Beto.
When she grows up, she has a small job in a flower shop. One day, while she delivers flowers to a restaurant, she meets Fernando J- Altamirano [FERNANDO CARRILLO)---- the son of the man her mother was (although unjustly) in prison for murdering!Rosalinda has no idea that her real mother is not the one who raised her and whom she always believed to be her mother.

Soledad returns and rents a room next to her late sister's family, in the same vecindad (neighborhood establishment). She decides not to reveal her identity to all---only her brother-in-law knows for the time being.

Valeria [LUPITA FERRER] ,of course, will recognize Soledad and when her identity is revealed, the consequences for Rosalinda will include "the horrors of hell."

And that's some of the plot...

For some people TELENOVELAS (soap operas) are dull, cliché, moron, stupid, stomachache... Well, I have to respect those...

And for some people they are piece of art which come from the heart of some culture. TELENOVELAS, for me are the art of Mexican culture, which I adore most. Since my childhood, I have been watching telenovelas; yes though I am a male and though I am educated. For some time I remember novelas from Mexico, Argentina, Brazil... But, my favorite ones are all from TELEVISA MEXICO. I watched; Abrazame Muy Furete, Maria La Del Barrio, La Usurpadora, Por Un Beso, Entre El Amor y El Odio... and many more.

But, my all times favorite is 1999 air "ROSALINDA" (Televisa), starring Thalia (my only obsession) and Fernando Carrillo. It was my low times, having started a life in another city away from my hometown to study in the university. Cold and blue about building personal relationships... I had only one warm room with my air antenna and only one channel that can reach out for my poor conditions. "ROSALINDA"... Ay AMOR! This novela gave back all the fire that has to be in my heart. This novela, Thalia, saved me everytime I thought of "over"... "Rosalinda" The music, the rhythm of my whole being... ROSALINDA... MI AMOR!

In my country, "Rosalinda" aired trice. I ended up all of it. Now in year 2005, Rosalinda is released as a DVD (9 hours edit) alongside a lot of other SUPERB novelas like "Abrazame Muy Fuerte", "La Usurpadora"...

I ordered my copy from AMAZON.com. When I received it I decided to end up each 'lado' of DVD in one night (that makes ~2,5 hours a side). Today is my last side... Rosalinda ended in my DVD, once more...

I am heartbroken.

I am down.

I am wet-eyed.

I feel abused.

This DVD does NOT contain the whole series. They chopped it down so that it makes no sense and the sound quality is very poor.

Rosalinda (Rosalinda - 550 minutes)

We start with a young secretary, Solidad (Angelica Maria) being dropped off by her boss, Alfredo (Manuel Saval). We can tell by their conversation that they are married but he doesn't dare admit it to his sister Valeria (Lupita Ferrer) because he's partners with his brother-in-law. That nasty brother-in-law bullies the young gal and tries to seduce her in his office. He knows his wife's brother will soon return, so he grabs her and hauls her to his boat, where he intends to rape her on a nearby island.

One thing after another and nice Alfredo shoots his brother-in-law, but his wife takes the rap because of the damage it would cause to the family firm. Sweet Solidad goes to jail for 20 years but she soon gives birth to a baby girl, never telling her husband she was pregnant for fear that he would step up, admit his guilt and destroy the family firm. She tearfully gives her baby Rosalinda, to her sister, who raises it with her daughters as her own.

Twenty years later, Rosalinda is a happy, lovely young woman who catches the eye of a pianist in a restaurant where she delivers flowers. He actually owns the restaurant but Fernando José Altamirano del Castillo (Fernando Carrillo) works as a lawyer at the family firm. He sweeps her off her feet while she thinks he works as a musician.

We soon discover that his mother, who is really his step-mother, has always hated that "scum" who "murdered" her saintly husband 20 years earlier, never suspecting that he intended to rape the girl, or that her brother was the one who actually pulled the trigger.

We see all the standard telenovela plot lines: a kidnapped baby, amnesia, "Who's your Mama?" false pregnancies, many lies and some loveless marriages.
