A lovely movie about the stirring life of the artist Frida Kahlo. “Frida” is designed in a sublime manner by play director Julie Taymor. She manages to portray the spectacular and dramatic biography of Friday with exotic spheric scenery and dazzling colourful images of Mexico. Absolute a pleasure for the eye.

Salma Hayek delivers an excellent performance as Frida Kahlo. Her opponent Alfred Molina (the painter Diego Riviera) has been casted perfectly. The animation of the Quay Brothers gives the film the finishing touch and creates a surreal atmosphere. The same mood which is clearly expressed by Frida Kahlo’s paintings.
