Audience Reviews for Rosario Tijeras

it had great elements lost on the way. the screenplay and direction are messy, but the core of the story is good, as well as Flora Martinez's performance. too bad Unax Ugalde can't pull off a convincing colombian accent.

Interesting and beautifully shot film with solid acting from the cast and specially the leading lady (Flora Martinez) as the femme fatale Rosario Tijeras is absolutely stunning. The violence is basically used to accentuate certain parts of the story, but this is definitely not an action film instead it is a drama/romance story in a criminal environment.
"Rosario Tijera" is a good Colombian film.
