Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: It wasn't a bad idea to conceive of the film as an epic, complex love story between Frida and Rivera, but the passion between them is more rhetorical than palpable...Taymor and Hayak give us only the rough sketch of a wild soul.
Fresh: Ms. Taymor gets magnificent performances from Ms. Hayek as Frida and Alfred Molina as the oversexed Diego Rivera.
Fresh: The greatest movie about an artist since Vincente Minnelli grafted the psychological turmoil of Vincent Van Gogh onto the screen in Lust for Life.
Fresh: Endlessly interesting.
It's a very good movie.
You won't like it if you don't like foreign movies but if you do it's amazing! I loved it and I watch it all the time! Recommended X10000!
I watched this movie after studying Frida Kahlo in depth and I was blown away by the incredible craftsmanship of the film, stunning acting, and the beauty of the production. I would recommend this to anyone as a fascinating and gorgeous work of art. It captures the life of Frida incredibly well, while retaining a very fresh take on her story. Check it out, yo.
