| Mosaic of the life of Frida.
The first thing you have to keep in mind is the format of the movie (8mm), and unfortunately the transfer to DVD was not made very well (the sound is pretty poor).

Nevertheless it is an interesting little movie that feels more like a surrealist's dream than a movie proper.

The dialogue is practically non-existent, thus you are left with small vignettes and images of relevant moments in the life of the artist, this may appear confusing if you don't know much about Frida and Diego, but if you do it is quite a poetic view abut their life together.

This is a movie made before Frida Khalo became a global feminist icon, conceived before all the hype generated by the rich and famous endorsing her and perhaps worth to watch just for this reason. reason.
