Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is the true story of Frida Kahlo and her husband Diego Rivera, the larger-than-life painters who became the most acclaimed artists in Mexican history and whose tempestuous love affair, landmark journeys to America, and outrageous personalities made them legendary. Filmed mainly in Mexico, the movie traces Frida's life from her unbridled high school days to her death at age 47.

This vivid book includes production notes, details on cinematography, set and costume design, and visual effects, music, notes by director Taymor, interviews with the cast, excerpts from books about Frida, reproductions of artwork, a historical timeline, and background sketches on the real figures portrayed in the movie.

Synopsis:

This magnificent visual book features over 150 full-color photos and notes about the making of the major feature film about one of the most famous artists and feminists in the 20th century, staring Salma Hayek and Alfred Molina.
