Exactly one week ago (July 6th), it was Frida Kahlo’s 103rd birthday.
I also happened to watch this movie again last week. It is one of my favorites and, as with most of my favorite movies, I try not to watch it too often so there will still be surprises for the next time.

Vibrant, honest, and passionate are all adjectives that come to mind when I think of Frida’s art and the film’s story provides the context.
