Synopsis

Frida Kahlo, whose work is at the fringes of sym­bol­ism and a kind of naïve sur­re­al­ism, is today con­sid­ered as one of the great­est artists of all time. Picasso said about her that she surely was the best por­traitist of the 20th cen­tury. André Bre­ton him­self orga­nized one of the first great­est exhi­bi­tions of her work out­side Mexico.

Her work recre­ates a whole uni­verse com­posed of frag­ments of her inner “self” and deep-rooted tra­di­tions drawn from her cul­ture. Frida Kahlo’s paint­ings as well as draw­ings and sketches from her diary are the very soul of the film. The voice of the artists is heard through extracts from her diary. All these texts, which have an extra­or­di­nary poetic and emo­tional force, make the link with the dif­fer­ent interviews.
