Frida was an excellent movie to watch and learn from.
4 May 2000 | by See all my reviews

Frida was an excellent movie to watch. I think many viewers interesting in watching a historical film would be pleased with this film because it has great way of showing different images that represented her life. This movie also recaptures and displays the life of a woman named Frida Kahlo. Frida played the role of a strong and independent individual who displayed her life through art. Throughout her life she suffers from a profound identity crisis. She suffered from severe health conditions to conflicts with her marriage(Diego Rivera). Her life was nothing but sorrow. Therefore, she had loved to display her pain and suffrage in most of her paintings. Her style in art is what made the movie so intense. Even though, the movie did not consist of much dialogue, each image in the movie had a great impact on the significance of her life.
