    I feel like this film captured the essence of Frida Khalo. That is, someone who was marred by tragedy and heartbreak but lived life to the full despite her hardships. I admire Frida Khalo so my liking for this film is affected by that. I have to admit this film does uh, paint her in her positive light and it doesn't address her questionable political allegiances later in life.

    You know that age-old dating profile question, what three famous people, alive or dead, would you invite for your fantasy dinner party? Frida Kahlo would be one of mine. And I was totally satisfied with this bio-pic film; it's engaging and inventively colourful.

    I just wish that it was actually in Spanish and that the dialogue was less clunky. I think the script struggled with translating Frida Kahlo's short and brilliant life.

    Also Geoffrey Rush plays Leon Trotsky.

    Geoffrey Rush. Plays. Trotsky. That gets five stars. That gets ALL the stars.

    a fairly standard oscar-baiting biopic that tries to use color correction, exotic flair, and touches of diet surrealism to cover up the scent.

    Frida (2002) is a biopic of the Mexican painter Frida Kahlo (portrayed by Salma Hayek). The movie’s opening moments show how her life was dramatically changed by a bus accident that left her physically disabled. The ensuing struggle of coping with physical pain defined her personality and work. The film also traces her love affair and marriage with Diego Rivera, another notable Mexican artist.

    For me, this film is notable in the intensity of emotion it portrays. Both Frida and…

    Hasn't aged too badly and looks great on blu ray.
    I watched the extra feature afterwards of tank-topped Salma in a recording studio recording her song for the film....weirdly the recording engineer has abandoned his mixing desk and spends the whole time hovering over Salma's shoulder....must be checking her lyric sheet.

    If you love Frida Kahlo, this movie does a great job showing her life. The way the art is contributed in the film is excellent. Especially because every art piece has to do with a certain story in her successful yet crazy, memorable, and often heartbreaking life. The color scheme throughout the whole film is another thing that allures people into it.

    When she was eighteen, Frida Kahlo (Selma Hayek) was in a horrifying automobile accident. During her long recovery, her father brought her a canvas and a passion for painting was born.

    Her unconventional relationship with Diego Rivera (Alfred Molina), her husband, occasional lover, sometime rival, and chief champion was the epitome of dysfunction.

    When Nelson Rockefeller (Edward Norton) commissioned Rivera to paint Man at the Crossroads, the couple traveled to New York, but because of political disagreements, it was never…

    Como Juno, aquel personaje de la mitología griega con dos caras, Frida tiene dos caras totalmente opuestas. Por un lado, la historia real de vida Kahlo, llena de colores y tragedias, que en ésta película se estrujan hasta el cansancio y sin embargo no logra su cometido, cual es hacer sentir al espectador el dolor en carne viva de la protagonista, revelar la odisea que era convivir (y subsistir) con Diego Rivera, y por supuesto, desplegar todo el abanico artístico…

    Increíble y maravilloso reflejo del universo de la pintora mexicana Frida Kahlo. Esta película, producida por la misma Salma Hayek, es una de las mejores películas que he visto basadas en la trayectoria personal y pública de un artista. Y además ha servido también para demostrar la gran valía interpretativa de la actriz S. Hayek quien consigue construir de manera magistral, increíble y portentosa una Frida magnífica, de incalculable valor y alcance (cosa que no es fácil).

    Großartiger Film und tolle Charaktere, sowohl die Schauspieler wie wohl auch ihre historischen Vorlagen.

    Un Biopic que nos lleva por los principales momentos de la vida de Frida Kahlo y sus principales fuentes de inspiración.

    Una película llena de memorables escenas acompañadas de un buen soundtrack; un guion que cumple con todas las expectativas; y actuaciones que están a la altura de la película, en especial Salma Hayek, yo creo que nadie pudo haberlo echo mejor que ella.

    Julie Taymor hizo muy buen trabajo en cuanto a la dirección. La película tampoco defrauda en…
