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