Anachronisms: In the scene in which the man is giving a puppet show, he whistles the theme from Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf. This scene would have taken place in the '20s. The Prokofiev wasn't written until 1936.See more »

Frida, 17 April 2000
Author: ( from Illinois, U.S.A.

After watching Frida for my Spanish class, I learned a lot about the history of Frida and what exactly her trade mark meant. The movie displays the life of Frida and what she meant to the Mexican culture. Through her artwork, her life with her husband and her illness is all portrayed. The time period was during the depression and world wars. A lot of her life during the movie is seen through a mirror signifying her life was shattered in the end. A lot of Mexican culture is shown through her husband, Diego, as well as Frida. The lady who plays Frida in the movie looks exactly like the original and does an awesome job being Frida. This movie has a lot to offer. It demonstrates the Mexican history, culture, and life of others during this time period. I would recommend using this film to teach students about Frida as well as the culture and history of Mexico.
