Storyline

"Frida" chronicles the life Frida Kahlo shared unflinchingly and openly with Diego Rivera, as the young couple took the art world by storm. From her complex and enduring relationship with her mentor and husband to her illicit and controversial affair with Leon Trotsky, to her provocative and romantic entanglements with women, Frida Kahlo lived a bold and uncompromising life as a political, artistic, and sexual revolutionary.

Goofs

In the movie when Frida loses the baby it is after Diego had painted the Detroit mural, and they are already in New York. But, in fact Frida lost the baby when Diego just started painting the Detroit mural in 1932. She lost the baby at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit. Also, there is a scene that shows her painting "Henry Ford Hospital" and shows the finished painting without the words on the frame of the bed. See more »

¡Viva Frida!
26 November 2002 | by (San Francisco, California) – See all my reviews

"Frida" is a beautifully done biopic about Mexican artist and icon Frida Kahlo. Salma Hayek plays this role very well. She exhibits all the passion that goes into being an artist, especially when playing off Alfred Molina, who plays Diego Rivera, husband of Frida Kahlo, and a famous Mexican artist in his own right. What really impressed me was the artistic references in the movie. I loved seeing the paintings coming to life! I also liked the surreal animated sequences, particularly the hospital nightmare, populated with Day of the Dead-style skeletons. Few movies have ever made me regard them as a work of art. "Frida" is definitely one of them!
