StunningBy a customer from reading , 13 Nov 2003
[Highly rated reviewer]This is a beautifully shot film. I was captivated by the stunning backdrops and the surreal effects used to capture the artists thoughts.
I have read many books about Frida and although this film covered many aspects of her colourful life I felt that the artist was not represented well. The injuries and pain that she lived with her whole life was skipped through most of the film until the end.
Alfred Molina who plays Riviera was excellent and very funny.
I highly recommend this film but if you are interested there are many great books written about her that you will need to get a better understanding.

Frida KahloBy a customer from Hereford , 23 Feb 2011Superb colour and atmosphere. Frida, a woman with enormous zest for life despite her physical pain. An inspiring story of the colourful yet troubled world of a female artist.
Excellent movie! Wonderful true history!By a customer from Woodstock , 17 Feb 2011Great Mexican film! Loved it! It really shows the reality of a controversial woman during old times. Frida is an example of someone being herself no matter what society says.
a very artistic filmBy a customer from Chesterfield , 18 Nov 2010If you're making a film about an artist it should bleed their art. This one does from the fine performances to the stunning visual sets. I loved it!
FRIDA KAHLOBy Gagan (4 reviews) from High Wycombe , 16 Nov 2010Knew a fair amount of fridas life after seeing her exhibition in London year's ago.
Beautifully done through the artists impression.
A life of being alone and in pain truly one of my top 5.
A fine filmBy Kwaze (23 reviews) from Sutton Coldfield , 16 Nov 2010
THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SPOILERS Show review anywayHideSome great subtle effects and fantastic colour rendition all add to an all round great film. I'd never heard of Frida before, but had heard of Salma, who generally plays light hearted feisty charactors, which suited this part perfectly, both in her personality and her appearance.
Interesting to research a bit about Frida after watching the film as well. Overall a complex sensation of mixed emotions. I don't think the film fully portrayed the sadness of her life, which would have been too depressing, but it made a great balance to keep the viewer captivated. Not sure if my review passes as a spoiler, but I've ticked it just in case.
