Goofs:
Revealing mistakes: In the opening sequence, Frida is lying in her bed, which has been loaded onto a truck which is driving through Mexico City. She is staring directly upward at the mirror mounted on the underside of the canopy over her bed. In a close-up of her face, we can see her earrings dangling. But they are not dangling toward the ground, but rather toward her feet, indicating that she was upright for the closeup, not lying in bed.See more »

wunderbar!, 27 January 2003
Author: courtney-eveleigh from dallas, tx

Visually stunning - if this film does not win for cinematography at the Academy Awards, I will be shocked.

This film, based on the biography of Frida Kahlo by Hayden Herrera, is a masterpiece. I read the book several years ago & have been a Frida fan ever since.

I heard an interview w/Hayden on NPR not too long ago talking about her book & the movie adaptation. She did years & years of research on Frida and is probably as close to an 'expert' on her life as we could come across in the year 2003. She praised Julie Taymor for this film and was quite happy with her adaptation.

Reading the reviews on this page, i find it hard to believe that there are critics of this movie. Everything from the music (beautiful!) to the cinematography to the acting . . . greatness!! Selma really put her heart & soul into this role and she has now made her way onto my list of 'favorite actresses'.

It would be hard to put anyone's life onto the big screen & get every single detail right on - esp. someone who lived 50+ years ago. I think Julie Taymor has done an amazing job of representing the life of Frida.
