A Colourful Delight!,
This review is from: Frida [DVD]  (DVD)
A bold and colourful film about the audacious and uncompromising Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, from her tram accident at 18, which left her with excruciating chronic pain, through her many affairs with both men and women, including Leon Troksy, and her tumultuous but enduring marriage to Mexican muralist, Diego Riviera.
Her life was full of circumstance and the pain and tragedies that she endured are imbued in her vibrant paintings.
Here, director Julie Taymore shows she is an extremely talented and accomplished director, displaying her artistic vision and skill, making fantastic use of colour, art and music.
Visually resplendent, this is an alluring film.
