Frida (2002)
Diego Rivera: Sex is like pissing. People take it much too seriously.

Diego Rivera: Thank you.
Frida Kahlo: For what?
Diego Rivera: For making a fat, old, crazy Communist a happy man.

Diego Rivera: It was just a fuck. I've given more affection in a handshake.

Diego Rivera: I'm physiologically incapable of fidelity.

Diego Rivera: There was this skinny kid with these eyebrows shouting up at me, "Diego, I want to show you my paintings!" But, of course, she made me come down to her, and I did, and I've never stopped looking. But I want to speak about Frida not as her husband, but as an artist. I admire her. Her work is acid and tender... hard as steel... and fine as a butterfly's wing. Loveable as a smile... cruel as... the bitterness of life. I don't believe... that ever before has a women put such agonized poetry on canvas.
Frida Kahlo: [as she's brought into the gallery] Shut up, panzon. Who died?

Frida Kahlo: I love a man with melones that are bigger than mine.
Diego Rivera: And I love a woman with cojones.

Nelson Rockefeller: Señor Rivera, I must ask you one last time to reconsider your position.
Diego Rivera: I will not compromise my vision.
Nelson Rockefeller: In that case, this is your fee, paid in full, as agreed, but your services are no longer required.
Diego Rivera: It's my painting!
Nelson Rockefeller: On my wall.
Diego Rivera: It's the people's wall, you bastard!

Frida Kahlo: Happy silver.
Diego Rivera: It's not for two more weeks.
Frida Kahlo: Seventeen days.

Diego Rivera: You know, I don't believe in God... but I thank him every day that he kept you safe for me.
Frida Kahlo: Oh really?... I tell you he's got a lot of explaining to do.

Frida Kahlo: You've lost weight.
Diego Rivera: And you've lost your toes.
Frida Kahlo: Is that why you're here? To offer your condolences?
Diego Rivera: I'm here to see how you are. How are you?
Frida Kahlo: Tired of answering that question. Otherwise, like shit.

Frida Kahlo: I just want your serious opinion.
Diego Rivera: What do you care about my opinion? If you're a real painter, you'll paint because you can't live without painting. You'll paint till you die.

[They kiss for the first time and all the lights in the street turn on when they separate]
Frida Kahlo: Did you arrange for that?
Diego Rivera: Cost me a fortune.

Frida Kahlo: Don't think I am going to sleep with you just because you took me under your wing.
Diego Rivera: Before you came along, I was painting murals and womanizing in peace.

Diego Rivera: Is fidelity that important to you?
Frida Kahlo: Loyalty is important to me. Can you be loyal?

Diego Rivera: Unfortunately, I'm physiologically incapable of fidelity.

Diego Rivera: [upon learning Frida has been unfaithful to him with Leon Trotsky] You've broken my heart, Frida.
Frida Kahlo: It hurts doesn't it? But why? It was just a fuck, like a handshake.
Diego Rivera: No. I told you who I was when you married me.
Frida Kahlo: Yes, you did, and I married you anyway. And, you promised to be loyal. You have been my comrade, my fellow artist... my best friend. But you've never been my husband.

Diego Rivera: [to the dog who has just urinated on his painting] Lord Xolotl, Prince of darkness - you are the best art critic there is. Only you see what shit this country has made of me.

Diego Rivera: When did you stop supporting art?
Margherita Sarfatti: I support your art but that does not mean that I must support your revolution.
Diego Rivera: It's the same thing!
