Fuego en la Sangre
I'm watching this telenovela & having a problem with this sentence from their website
ÿscar le dice a Franco que quiso correr antes de caminar en su relación con Jimena y echó todo a perder.
Oscar tells Franco that he wanted to run before walking in his relationship with Jimena & throw all to be lost
''''? I'm sure there are a couple of idiomatic expressions here. And of course the translator doesn't make sense.
La Malquerida was a classic Mexican movie. Although the word is literally "disliked one," that isn't the sense in which is used in the movie title or, I suspect, your nightclub. The meaning is more like a woman who won't get to be the wife, if you know what I mean.
Another movie called The Torch was titled La Malquerida when released in Mexico. And the following site discusses Benavente's play of the same name, which was translated as Passion Flower.
También es una obra muy famosa de Jacinto Benavente, que trata precisamente de una mujer "malquerida" o sea, que el marido tiene "otra mujer"
I did come up with unloved when I searched the word, but it didn't seem right in este caso.
I believe "echar a perder" is to spoil, to deteriorate. Is this correct? So it could mean he spoilt everything.
Hi motley, malquerida is really the "not loved"....
I don't know ....
is the name of a nightclub with girls dancing & hombres lecheros. How would you translate the name, Illicit love, want, lujuria'
acabo de leer su respuesta, gracias y yo comprendo.
Perfecto James, fits the situation.
Gracias a todos
yeah, I agree with James. That's the meaning
hecho = fact
echó = threw
Echó todo a perder - He lost everything.
Oscar tells Franco that he wanted to run before he learned to walk in his relationship with Jimena, and ended up losing her.
That is, he was rushing things, trying to move too fast.
Quiso correr antes de caminar: Que en lugar de seguir un protocolo (ir paso a paso) se adelantan los hechos. En este caso Oscar trató de llevar la relación a un nivel para el que aún no estaba lista.
Y hechó todo a perder: Que tal vez perdió su oportunidad.
