Spanish Teacher Approves!!
Review by Maquigs on 07/17/20 review stating Spanish Teacher Approves!!
Im a high school Spanish teacher. This film is outstanding; it gives detailed history behind the era of Frida, goes into intimate detail about her unusual life, affairs, personality, etc. It kept my students attention throughout. There are a couple of deeply disturbing paintings regarding her miscarriage; however, they are necessary to fully understand Fridas mental and physical pain which fueled her art. I figure that if it is ok for television/PBS, its certainly ok in a high school classroom. The interviews of her former students and acquaintances are fabulous. No dejen de verlo!

Very accurate: both Life Art
Review by Pavel G. on 07/17/20 review stating Very accurate: both Life Art
This is a fascinating record of Frida Kahos Life, including politics. Frida started painting in bed after a horrific injury. I was especially thrilled by her paintings, sometimes beautiful, and often dealing with death. Her self portraits show her as a thrilling personality. She is my favorite artist. I am going to see other DVDs of Frida Kahlo.
