A boisterous and colourful biopic, Frida pulls you in right from the vividly represented bus accident that informed her life through to her death at 47. It’s got everything – a fascinating subject, a first-rate performance, a touch of sentimentality, and a visual sensibility that mimics the artist’s own surreal style. Salma Hayek’s injects the iconic painter with a stoic toughness and joie de vivre that belies her character’s immense physical and emotional pain. It’s also a great romance that gives insight into Frida’s on again, off again relationship with the adulterous larger-than-life muralist, Diego Rivera. [us, 2002]
