Brilliant colours that bring Frida Kahlo's Mexico City to vibrant life combine with a captivating performance by Salma Hayek to make director Julie Taymor's FRIDA a fascinating film. Starting and ending with Frida on her deathbed, the film spans the famous painter's life from her teenage years to her death at the young age of 47. From start to finish, Frida is portrayed as a relentlessly energized, self-righteous, headstrong, assertive woman. She had liberal views and a socialist political stance. She was bisexual and promiscuous. She drank and abused painkillers, sang and danced, and fearlessly poured her pain and beauty into her paintings. At the age of 18, Frida was horribly injured in a bus accident. Though she learned to walk again, she lived her life in physical agony, enduring multiple surgeries, and eventually needing a wheelchair. Yet her condition did not stop her from having an exciting, tumultuous life as the wife of famed artist and womaniser Diego Rivera, who mentored her in her own work and encouraged her passions. While Frida's life is the main focus, her work is always present and the action of the film often fades into paintings and vice versa. However, the film only hints at the recognition and worldwide display that her painting received after her death. Taymor has created a lively and dramatically emotive film with FRIDA, capturing her endearing resiliency with colour, music and, of course, art.

Nominated for six 2002 Academy Awards(R), including Salma Hayek for Best Actress, FRIDA is the triumphant motion picture about an exceptional woman who lived an unforgettable life! A product of humble beginnings, Frida Kahlo (Hayek) earns fame as a talented artist with a unique vision. And from her enduring relationship with her mentor and husband, Diego Rivera (Alfred Molina SPIDERMAN 2), to her scandalous affairs, Frida's uncompromising personality would inspire her greatest creations!

Movie Reviews

Slate - 7.0/10 by David Edelstein If you want rich folk-art colors, brainy spectacle, and breezy soap opera, then Frida is the biopic for you.
Boston Globe - 6.3/10 by Wesley Morris Disappointing.
Dallas Observer - 8.0/10 by Gregory Weinkauf The bulk of the film showcases some of the best direction of actors this year.
The New York Times - 7.0/10 by Dana Stevens At its best when it forsakes earnest psychological exposition for magic realism, when, instead of trying to explain Kahlo's life, it conjures the moods and sensations that fed her art.
Salon.com - 7.0/10 by Stephanie Zacharek A romance for the deeply romantic, which means that some people will certainly view it as cynical.
Chicago Reader - 7.0/10 by Meredity Brody This is the Classics Illustrated version of Kahlo's story--fun mostly for the sets and the clothes.
Charlotte Observer - 7.5/10 by Lawrence Toppman Alfred Molina makes an excellent foil as the easygoing, philandering Rivera, whose public murals were the exact opposite of Frida's private canvases.
Portland Oregonian - 8.3/10 by Shawn Levy While the script of Frida struggles at times to be something more than an ordinary and-then-this-happened biography, there's a buoyancy to the direction and acting that make the film special.
