interesting documentary/interpretation of the great artist...
7 January 2003 | by (Detroit) – See all my reviews

I saw this film while on a study abroad trip in Mexico. We were studying third world cinema and were supposed to see the Frida Kahlo film by Paul LeDuc, but instead got this little documentary. The biography of Frida along with the interpretations of many of her paintings were so unique that later that day I went and bought a picture plaque of one of her later paintings. Her tragic story was inspiring and the director and narrator did a very thorough job of retelling her life, along with the trouble she encountered with her famous painter husband Diego Rivera. Highly recommended to anyone interested in artists and the things that inspire them. I may even check out the new Salma Hayek movie about Frida Kahlo.
