We had been to a Frida Kahlo exhibition a few days before watching this, so it was very helpful already knowing quite a few details and examples of her work. No doubt this film would be made very differently today (among other things, women only seem to talk to each other about men, and there are some undeniably Weinsteinesque touches) but it?s still a very good biopic. Hayek and Molina were both excellent.

3/30/18 This is an enjoyable story. Interesting woman. Not much to say about this one. Good, but not a must see.

While in Mexico, everyone recommend visiting the museum of 'Frida Kahlo', who was an adamant political activist, and communist.

This film is a biography about her life, and mainly focuses on her dramatic relationship with another famous mexican 'Diego Rivira'.

This is typically not my cup of tea, but it was interesting to see that Frida had a sexual relationship with Trotsky from Russia, despite being in his 70's.

Nonetheless, if history and drama about a prominent female figure is your thing, then this is a good movie.

A quite amusing look at the literally colorful life of arguably Mexico's most revered artist. Interesting to note too that it was during the making of this movie that Salma was harassed by then movie giant Harvey Weinstein.

Puntaje Original: 6.5

Una bien lograda producción, que aunque deja ciertos temas incompletos de la trama, Frida es un film digno de su personaje.

I felt the movie focused too much on Diego Rivera rather than Frida. With such amazing source material in her life that is unfortunate.

Salma Hayek makes the character an icon of female independence, courage and nonconformity, forecasting special appeal for women viewers.

Great movie! If you love Frida's work like I did but don't know much about her life you need to watch this. I feel so much more educated about her.

Not a good movie to watch

Featuring a heart-felt performance from Selma Hayak as artist Frida Kahlo, this is possibly one of the more successful artist biopics I have seen.

Salma Hayek is truly fabulous. Alfred Molina Is quite perfect too!
The story lacks a lot of things, but they are trying to portray an artist in just 2 hours.... And I think they did a good job.

I first watched Frida when I knew absolutely nothing about her and the time period background when Mexico was going through and Mexico in general. The second time I watched is decades later, I have learned much about and taken intense interests in Mexico as well as Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera and all other things around them, I then absolutely adore this movie immensely.

The movie has some of its excellent visual effects to tell the story of some certain sequences. And because the centerpiece is around Mexico and Frida, one has to expect to see so much of Mexico City. I remember they even used The Gran Hotel interior as part of Frida' s journey in Paris. And it really fits. Of course there is Day of the Dead as well. I can probably go on forever on all the Mexican elements I love about Frida. But most importantly, the life-long struggles of Frida' s is painstaking but inspiring. I really admire Frida.

Film biografico di discreta fattura che ci introduce un personaggio di cui forse si è sentito parlare per sfuggita. Le opere dell'artista vengono inserite e contestualizzate all'interno del film in modo eccellente e la ricostruzione scenografica è piuttosto convincente. La scelta degli attori è riuscita ma il film in generale non va oltre la sufficienza. In troppe occasioni perde la velocità di narrazione che caratterizzava le scene precedenti e fin troppo spesso non ci sono abbastanza elementi da tenere alto l'interesse nello spettatore.

An exceptional and visually striking biopic of an extraordinary painter. Great performances throughout, and more importantly, major props to director Julie Taymor. Frida is terrific.

Great biopic about someone not english and very worldly. Salma is doing a superb job. The visuals are very colorful, imaginative and convey a feel of grandeur. Great portrait.
