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 »

Too long for sympathizing with Frida, 22 September 2004
Author: aya bassiouny from Cairo, Egypt

I have watched Salma Hayek's movie before this one, so at the beginning I thought it was a terrible movie. When I was half way through it I changed my mind. Few words are spoken in this movie and many scenes are unrelated, and it was intentionally made this way. It doesn't want to provide us with a lot of information about Frida, Diego Rivera and Mexico at the time, but rather show us Frida's feelings in different situations; how she loved her father, wanted to have a baby,became tremendously happy when receiving the painting colors in the hospital etc.. The music helps us to understand and apprehend these feelings. Yet her character is poorly represented and so is her relationship with her husband. We see here every once in a while in somebody's else's arms, flirting with Trotsky and kissing some lady, but I really don't understand why. The movie was also a little bit boring. I give it 5 out of 10.
