Frida

Factual error: Frida is shown watching King Kong when she goes to New York. It is well known that the movie was made in 1933, but later we see on her mother's grave that the year is 1932.

Factual error: There is a reference to Happy Rockefeller in 1933 by Alfred Molina. She became Nelson Rockefeller's wife in the 1960s and was unknown at the time.

Audio problem: After Frida comes back to New York City from visiting her mother, she greets Diego. In the far shot her lips don't move at all.

Trivia: Many of Frida's paintings are in the movie in an artistic way. The end up looking like real life in a doorway or a window. This is so that they look framed. One example is a painting of Frida sitting with her cut hair and scissors.


Frida Kahlo: At the end of the day, we can endure much more than we think we can.

Frida Kahlo: I had two big accidents in my life Diego, the trolley and you... You are by far the worse.

Frida Kahlo: Did I tell you that I'm going to walk again.
Alex: Yes.
Frida Kahlo: Did you believe it?
Alex: Of course I do.
Frida Kahlo: You'd better, because you are going to miss it.

Question: What were the Spanish lyrics to the song Frida was singing in the bar just before she started the brawl, and is that the literal translation that is on the subtitles? I know what the movie says the translation is, but I can't get the words the same when I try to translate back into Spanish.

Chosen answer: The Song Frida is singing is one of Diego┬┤s most favourite songs, La Bruja (On the soundtrack performed by Lila Downs). http://www.musicbrother.com/index.php?page=song&id=167156 (german page, but spanish lyrics).
