Rosario Tijeras (Spanish) by Jorge Franco



Rosario Tijeras de Jorge Franco es una narconovela como pocas pese a su calificación de "siete cuentos". La ternura del personaje de Rosario Tijeras narrada por su enamorado, quien comparte ese amor con otro amigo formando un trío poliamoroso digno de la telenovela del mismo nombre, con una música contemporánea que nos cuenta la historia de los jóvenes de dos clases sociales de nuestra Amérida, la de los privilegiados y la de los que no lo son tanto. Quieren retratar a Colombia como es, no cómo nos la imaginamos. Rosario Tijeras, de Jorge Franco, es una historia tejida con el hilo de un tema universal y tratado mil veces, que intenta reinar sobre los breves silencios que permiten las balas y sobre el sabor a muerte: el amor. Hay momentos en que el lector no sabrá si llorar o reir y, es posible que como yo, termine haciendo ambas cosas.

Rosario Tijeras is a 2005 Colombian film based on the book of the same name written by Jorge Franco. The film was released in Colombia in 2005. In that same year the film had its North American premiere at the American Film Institute festival in Hollywood. The film was also nominated for a Goya Award for best foreign film. Rosario Tijeras is reportedly the second highest-grossing film in Colombian history.

Rosario Tijeras (Spanish) ) "Since they shot her at point-blank range while she was being kissed, she confused the pain of love with that of death. Rosario Tijeras is the violent, violated character at the center of Jorge Franco's study of contrasts, set in self-destructing 1980s Medellín. Her very name-evoking the rosary, and scissors-bespeaks her conflict as a woman who becomes a contract killer to insulate herself from the random violence of the streets. Son of Olga Stella Franco and Humberto Ramos, Jorge Alfredo Franco Gamez studied film at the London International Film School and literature at the Pontificia Universidad Javeriana in Bogotá, but did not finish his studies. He began his writing career in 1991 and obtained his first award, the Pedro Gómez Valderrama, in 1996 for the short story collection Maldito amor (Cursed love).

Rosario Tijeras is the violent, violated character at the center of Jorge Franco’s study of contrasts, set in self-destructing 1980s Medellín. From the corridors of the hospital where Rosario is fighting for her life, Antonio, the narrator, waits to learn if she will recover. Through him, we reconstruct the friendship between the two, her love story with Emilio, and her life as a hitwoman. Rosario Tijeras has been recognized as an admirable continuation of a literary subject that was first treated by Gabriel García Márquez and then by Fernando Vallejo. A work in the Latin American social realist tradition, Rosario Tijeras is told in fast and vibrant prose and with poetic flourish. About Rosario Tijeras.

22 quotes from Jorge Franco: 'I’ve always thought that there are no couples in love nor any love triangles, only an Indian file where you love the person in front of you and that person in turn loves the one in front of him, and so on, and where the one behind me loves me and that one is loved by the one behind him and so on, but always loving the one whose back is turned to us. And the last one in line isn’t loved by anyone', 'I wanted to save myself from that drug that contaminates the body and veins and not from the other drug, you know that drug that enters through your eyes.

Rosario Tijeras is the violent, violated character at the center of Jorge Franco Ramos’ delicately balanced novel, set in self-destructing 1980s Medellín. Her very name-evoking the rosary and scissors-bespeaks her conflict as a woman who becomes a contract killer to insulate herself from the random violence of the streets (in a country where it is common practice among her colleagues to boil bullets in holy water before using them). Rosario Tijeras is a work in the Latin American social realist tradition, possessed of fast and vibrant prose, and poetic flourish. It has sold over eighty thousand copies in Columbia alone. Heralded in The New York Times as part of "Colombia’s new wave of novelists," Jorge Franco Ramos has in a few years pieced together a billiant career.

I first noticed Rosario Tijeras on Netflix. It was March, 2018. Netflix had uploaded the 2016 Mexican telenovela, Rosario Tijeras. This telenovela is a remake of the 2010 Columbian telenovela, which is itself based on the novel, Rosario Tijeras. (Side note: there is also a 2005 Columbian film based on the novel.) Anyway, I watched the first few episodes of the Mexican telenovela and thought: "I've been meaning to get into Latin American literature. This may be a good place to start."

The story takes place in Medellin during the 1980s/1990s. We follow the narrator Antonio, as he recounts his friendship with (and unrequited? love for the mysterious and deadly Rosario Tijeras. Rosario has been shot, and as Antonio waits for news, he tells the reader about Rosario - all from what he witness or from what she told him. Because, while she dated his best friend Emilio, and her brother's friend, and countless others - she always had real conversations with Antonio.

The story is short and intense. It clocks in at about 172 pages and took all of one hour and something-minutes to read. But, it felt like I went through a whole seven years. I think it would have been even better untranslated.

And that is really my one major complaint about this novel - the translation. The novel had several spelling and grammar errors. And, some sentences were translated in a very stiff way. A lot of: "She walked over to the table." and "I always come back, my friend." Favor and characterization is almost always lost in translations, but I feel like they were really lost here.

Overall, it is a great novel. I'd also recommend the telenovelas that are based on it. Anyone have any more modern Latin America or South American novels they'd like to recommend?

Los que entran en el mundo del terror del narcotráfico buscando una opción de vida posible e imposible hasta compartir el horror de la muerte. Jorge Franco es un narrador de primera fila quien en un relato que es una historia de amor aparentemente sencilla nos ilustra la complejidad de la posmodernidad en la ciudad (i)letrada latinoamericana, la Medellín de la Gran Colombia.

En la era post Cien Años de Soledad y el boom de realismo mágico
en que se agruparon muchos después del clásico de Gabriel García
Márquez, una nueva generación de escritores colombianos - Mario
Mendoza, Fernando Vallejo, Jorge Franco, y otros - nos devuelven
una Colombia reconocible. Nos presentan a los colombianos
actuales en medio de la cruda realidad vivida dentro y fuera del
país, y que por momentos no pareciera tener fin. Quieren retratar
a Colombia como es, no cómo nos la imaginamos. Rosario Tijeras,
de Jorge Franco, es una historia tejida con el hilo de un tema
universal y tratado mil veces, que intenta reinar sobre los
breves silencios que permiten las balas y sobre el sabor a
muerte: el amor. Hay momentos en que el lector no sabrá si llorar
o reir y, es posible que como yo, termine haciendo ambas cosas.
El libro se lee de una o dos sentadas, pues una vez que empezamos
no queremos soltarlo. El autor, joven de la nueva generación
influenciada por los elementos audiovisuales y quien estudió
cinematografía, ha sabido añadirle ese elemento a su obra. De ser
traducida a la pantalla la realidad que pinta el autor, la
película basada en la obra que se filma en Medellín al momento de
escribir esta nota, será un éxito tan rotundo como el libro.

Hmmm....I was expecting a very twisted plot but the novel simply traces the troubled life of a woman as a man who loves her in secret waits outside the OR as she is in surgery. Very poor plot, just sordid sex descriptions, then drugs, then more sex... and how everyone was so fascinated by this woman. I understand she's a remarkable character, but her character is not very well developed. A pretty lady who loves sex and does drugs. Yeah? What's so "remarkable" about that?

I love this novel but I gave it a four star because they changed a couple of the things such as the mother was in a seamstress she was a hairdresser and little things like that. I think it should have been rewritten by the Author that originally wrote it he should've changed it in English himself.

Crude but good and very close to the Colombian reality. Dura pero buena y muy cercana a la realidad colombiana.

Surprisingly this is short novella that dives into a spiral of emotions. Divino! Took me a while to read through it as my Spanish isn't so great but the style is what I like the best! Es para los amantes!
Buen libro para pasar el tiempo.
