The story of two friends that meet and are seduced by a sensuous hit woman named, Rosario Tijeras (Flora Martinez). Based on the novel by renowned writer Jorge Franco, Rosario is moved by hatred toward anyone who has ever hurt or abused her, making violence her way of life. The three friends will soon loose themselves in a passionate love triangle where the pain of love will be confused with that of death.

Basada en la novela del aclamado escritor Colombiano Jorge Franco, se trae a la pantalla grande la historia de Rosario Tijeras. Antonio y Emilio son dos amigos que un día conocen a una bella y sensual sicaria del narcotráfico en Medellín, llamada Rosario Tijeras (Flora Martinez). Movida por el odio contra todos los que la han maltratando, Rosario hace de la violencia su estilo de vida. Los tres amigos pronto se perderán en un triángulo pasional donde confundirán el dolor del amor con el de la muerte.

Customer Reviews

There's just not enough about their relationship for the audience to care.
M. Carter
There's quite a bit of sex in the film, but it's in context of the story itself and the cultural milieu so it's not at all out of place.
Tim Withee
In fact, probably one of the best Latin action films that I've seen in recent years.

I enjoyed *Rosario Tijeras*. It wasn't a great film but it is worth watching.

The movie opens with Antonio bringing Rosario into an emergency room. Both are covered in blood. While Rosario is taken into surgery, Antonio takes a stroll down memory lane to where he first meets Rosario.

Antonio and his friend, Emilio, meets Rosario at a trendy bar. Emilio and Rosario immediately hooks up. Rosario is a sexy, fascinating and mysterious woman.

Throughout the movie, you're not sure if Rosario is doing assignments for someone else or if she's the head honcho. Antonio later tells her about these rumors he's heard about her. Even Antonio isn't sure. Rosario just laughs it off.

What's interesting about this movie is that the first half, she's in control. However, once her friend/"brother"/mentor/caretaker, JonHefe was killed, she seems to lose control of everything.

Meanwhile, Antonio is in love with Rosario. However, he doesnt' want to come between her and his childhood friend, Emilio. Plus, he feels obligated to look after her after her brother made him promise to do so.

I enjoyed the cinematic scenes throughout the film. However, what I wasn't too crazy about was the stereotypical portrayal of Latinos as gun-toting and revengeful. Ah well, I guess there are small rings of truth in stereotypes.

Overall, good movie. In fact, probably one of the best Latin action films that I've seen in recent years.

This is a really interesting and beautifully shot film. The acting is suburb and the leading lady (Flora Martinez) as the femme fatale Rosario Tijeras is absolutely stunning. She has a lot of range and depth and hope to see more of her. Although it is very graphic in its sexuality and violence it still is a moving and emotional story. Recommended for film buffs and those enamored of Flora Martinez :)

First off, the camera work and cinematography is second to none. Even the premise itself is top of the line. Unfortunately, the execution of the story is what hurts this movie. We have flashback, after flashback, in one person's flashback, then somebody else's flashback, that the story gets muddled. Rosario is so hurt by her brother's death for almost half the movie, but the problem is, that her brother is not fleshed out enough, the filmmakers should have given the audience some emotion to connect with Rosario's emotion. There's just not enough about their relationship for the audience to care. But some of the images and camera angles just might be worth checking out this film.

Late 80s Medellin was the backdrop for "Rosario Tijeras," a film about a love triangle between Rosario (Flora Martinez) and two friends, Emilio (Manolo Cardona) and Antonio (Unax Ugalde). While hanging out at a dance club full of beautiful Colombianas, Emilio spots Rosario -- stunning beyond stunning in a red minidress -- in the middle of the dance floor and forgets everything else. Emilio then makes his move while his buddy Antonio watches. Both of the guys fall for her although at first Rosario seems to prefer the wealthy playboy Emilio, but in the end -- later in the film -- she realizes she truly loves Antonio. Rosario has a secret, though. She's a gun for hire -- who, along with her brother Jonhefe(Rodrigo Oviedo)and his buddy Ferney (Alonso Arias) -- take out contract and revenge hits in the Medellin underworld, which of course was dominated by the cocaine cartel.

Rosario really likes Emilio, but only for sex. For her, he's a diversion from her hard lifestyle. She doesn't tell him anything about her life, although early on she gives him a very graphic "hint" that she's not to be trifled with. On the other hand, as she gets to know Antonio, she tells him everything and invites him into her life. Eventually, after being insulted at dinner by Emilio's wealthy parents, she lets go of Emilio and falls for good-guy Antonio.

In the meantime, by way of flashbacks, we come to understand how Rosario came to be the killer she is. Growing up in a poor barrio, she was sexually abused as a young girl by her stepfather. She got even with him by emasculating him with a big pair of scissors -- thus earning her last name, "Tijeras.

Hace dos años leí el libro por Jorge Franco e inmediatamente ése se hizo uno de mis libros preferidos. Me emocioné al saber que iban a hacer una película basada en la novela y recién esta noche la veo. Qué película más fuerte! Siguió bastante fielmente al libro, aunque hubo escenas en la pantalla grande que no recordé en el libro, como cuando salen a rumbear para hacerle un último homenaje a Johnefe pero bueno! También confieso que fue más fácil de seguir la novela que la película. La historia tiene muchos enredos así que en las páginas, pude seguirlos sin problemas. Una crítica decía que la segunda parte no estaba tan bien dirigida que la primera. Puede ser. Pero queda claro que Flora Martínez actuó re-bien. Ella hizo vivir un personaje sumamente complejo (el de la mismísima Rosario Tijeras). Lo mismo me pasó en la película que en la novela - aun sabiendo lo mala que es Rosario, no pude evitar de "enamorarme" de ella también, pues es muy seductora. También Unax Ugalde actuó muy bien como Antonio, el mejor amigo de Rosario. No voy a revelar qué pasa, pero es una historia que tiene muchas sorpresas. ¡Andá a ver a Rosario Tijeras si podés! (Y vas a escuchar el voseo porque no se habla de tú sino de vos en Medellín, Colombia!)
