Customer Review

I think not.

She may have been an interesting painter but this overly simplistic biopic does not begin to capture the complexity and contradictions of Frida's character. Her affair with Trotsky in front of his long-suffering wife did nothing to stop her supporting Stalin, long after one of his agents put an axe through her former lover's skull.

What is interesting for me is the way in which she assiduously creates a personality-cult around herself - long before Andy Warhol made that a dominant feature of his work.

Sadly, Frida's fans increase daily (look at Pinterest!) but a real understanding of this remarkable woman gets lost en route towards her deification. This film does little to redress that trend.
