This programme contains some strong language

0:00:300:00:36

Arriba! Arriba, arriba, arriba!

0:01:200:01:23

Vamos!

0:01:230:01:24

Careful, guys.

0:01:280:01:30

This corpse is still breathing.

0:01:300:01:32

Uh!

0:01:320:01:35

Try to get me there in one piece.

0:01:350:01:38

-Hello, Professor.

-Hello, Frida.

0:02:220:02:24

-Diego Rivera is back in the auditorium!

-Who cares?

-With a naked woman.

0:02:300:02:34

Shh...

0:02:490:02:50

Why is this whore still here? Huh?

0:02:590:03:03

Tell me.

0:03:030:03:05

Tell me, mi amor.

0:03:050:03:08

-Are you planning to have her after lunch, or have you fucked her already?

-Lupe, please don't start.

0:03:080:03:14

You think I don't know what's going on, you must think I'm an idiot!

0:03:140:03:18

-I can't work like this.

-Yes, you can. Your food and your slut.

0:03:180:03:21

That's all you need to paint your pinche murals!

0:03:210:03:23

Hey! Get out!

0:03:230:03:25

And don't come home and give me one of your speeches

0:03:250:03:28

about the artist and the people and your fucking revolution!

0:03:280:03:31

You only care about yourself, you piece of shit!

0:03:310:03:34

Ah, so much for lunch. Although...

0:03:400:03:44

I could eat you, perhaps.

0:03:460:03:48

I've eaten female flesh before, yes.

0:03:500:03:53

Wrapped up in...tortillas.

0:03:560:03:59

It tastes like...the tenderest young...pig.

0:04:050:04:10

Watch out, Diego! Lupe's coming back!

0:04:210:04:24

Fucking punks!

0:04:270:04:29

Come on, you little anarchists!

0:04:290:04:32

-Come and light one of your firecrackers if you dare!

-Let's go.

0:04:320:04:36

Frida...

0:04:360:04:37

Just keeping you honest, panzon.

0:04:410:04:44

Panzon...

0:04:470:04:50

Do I look fat to you?

0:04:500:04:52

Shh!

0:04:570:04:59

THEY GASP AND MOAN

0:05:030:05:07

Shh!

0:05:080:05:10

-Here you are.

-Gracias.

0:05:370:05:39

Frida, we found the most beautiful fabric for my wedding dress today.

0:05:410:05:45

-Fantastic.

-It cost a fortune.

0:05:450:05:48

-Mama?

-Yes?

-Are these ripe?

0:05:550:05:58

They should be, let me see.

0:05:580:06:00

Yes, they're fine. Just need a day or two.

0:06:000:06:03

Maybe you'll get married too, one day.

0:06:040:06:07

One can only hope.

0:06:070:06:09

Lunch is almost ready.

0:06:090:06:12

Go get the artist.

0:06:120:06:14

I love this one...

0:06:160:06:18

It's beautiful.

0:06:180:06:20

I like it, too.

0:06:200:06:22

They're busy with the wedding.

0:06:240:06:26

-Cristina is so excited about her dress.

-Good.

0:06:260:06:30

Everyone should be excited when they get married.

0:06:300:06:33

I suppose - if that's what you want.

0:06:330:06:37

And, er...what do you want?

0:06:370:06:40

I don't know.

0:06:430:06:45

I just don't think that marriage is for everyone.

0:06:450:06:47

Well, you need a good reason to do it, just like with anything else.

0:06:470:06:51

What do you think matters most for a good marriage?

0:06:510:06:55

A short memory.

0:06:550:06:57

Why did you get married, Papa?

0:07:010:07:03

I can't remember.

0:07:030:07:05

So I could have you.

0:07:060:07:09

-Concentrate, everybody.

-Wait, where is Frida?

0:07:120:07:15

Adriana, go tell your sister to hurry up.

0:07:150:07:19

I always wanted a son.

0:07:320:07:36

And now Matilde, everyone, eyes to the camera and...

0:07:360:07:40

Come on, we'll miss our bus.

0:07:500:07:53

Oh!

0:08:090:08:10

Frida!

0:08:100:08:12

How much is the calaca?

0:08:120:08:15

Frida, come on!

0:08:150:08:17

-The bus!

-We'll take the next one.

0:08:210:08:23

No, no, no! Come, come, come!

0:08:230:08:25

Watch out... Hey! Hey!

0:08:260:08:28

Anyway, I just don't think he's completely apolitical, that's all.

0:08:370:08:42

That's because you read it after you read Marx.

0:08:420:08:45

You always read things in the wrong order.

0:08:450:08:47

That's ridiculous. Why should it matter what order you read it in?

0:08:470:08:50

If you have already read Marx, of course Hegel is going to seem political,

0:08:500:08:55

but the truth is the idea of history as a dialectic just predicts Marx...

0:08:550:08:59

Is that gold? Real gold?

0:08:590:09:02

For the ceiling of the opera house.

0:09:040:09:07

HORN BLARES

0:09:070:09:09

Move it!

0:09:110:09:13

HORN BLARES

0:09:170:09:19

TYRES SQUEAL

0:09:220:09:24

Your brake!

0:09:320:09:34

The spinal column was broken, as were the collarbone and two ribs.

0:10:440:10:49

The pelvis is broken in three places.

0:10:490:10:51

The metal rod entered the right side of the body and came out the vagina.

0:10:510:10:55

The right leg has 11 fractures, and the foot was crushed.

0:10:550:10:58

Will she ever walk again?

0:10:580:11:01

Let's make sure she lives first.

0:11:010:11:03

-Is Alex alive?

-Frida!

-Is he all right?

0:11:310:11:35

He was hurt, but not terribly.

0:11:350:11:37

He was here yesterday when you were not awake.

0:11:370:11:40

And Mama?

0:11:400:11:43

-It was too much for them. They are at home.

-How long have I been here?

0:11:430:11:47

Three weeks.

0:11:470:11:49

We're almost there.

0:12:060:12:08

Gently, now.

0:12:100:12:11

-There is nothing left to spend.

-I will sell some of my equipment.

0:12:450:12:48

For another operation that probably won't work?

0:12:480:12:50

No. Listen.

0:12:500:12:52

Maybe this time it will work.

0:12:520:12:54

And then how will you make money?

0:12:540:12:56

I'll...paint portraits again.

0:12:560:13:00

Admit it, Guillermo.

0:13:000:13:02

She'll never walk again.

0:13:020:13:04

Go on in, Alex. She's waiting for you.

0:13:070:13:11

Hello, ugly.

0:13:240:13:26

They're beautiful.

0:13:280:13:30

-How do you feel?

-Like I've been hit by a bus.

0:13:300:13:33

-SHE LAUGHS

-Come on, silly. Come, come.

0:13:330:13:37

Come sit with me. Look.

0:13:370:13:39

It's my only good angle at the moment.

0:13:390:13:41

No, it's not.

0:13:410:13:44

I like you this way.

0:13:440:13:46

You're easier to keep up with.

0:13:460:13:48

Spengler, because you love him.

0:14:000:14:03

Schopenhauer because it's good for you.

0:14:030:14:06

Oh, Alex.

0:14:060:14:08

You know I adore you. I've missed you so much.

0:14:080:14:12

I told the doctor the handrail had taken my virginity.

0:14:160:14:21

And I'm sure he believed you.

0:14:210:14:24

You know,

0:14:260:14:28

when I get out of this cast,

0:14:280:14:31

I'm going to show you a couple of things I still remember from before.

0:14:310:14:35

OK.

0:14:360:14:38

What?

0:14:380:14:39

My aunt and my uncle are leaving for Europe, and...

0:14:420:14:46

..they've invited me to come along.

0:14:470:14:49

But that's wonderful.

0:14:510:14:53

When would you leave?

0:14:530:14:55

Soon.

0:14:550:14:57

Next week.

0:14:570:14:59

How long will you be gone?

0:15:010:15:03

They're going for two months,

0:15:030:15:06

and afterwards I might stay on at the Sorbonne.

0:15:060:15:08

I will be staying on.

0:15:110:15:13

Did I tell you that I'm going to walk again?

0:15:240:15:26

Yes.

0:15:260:15:28

Do you believe it?

0:15:280:15:31

Of course I do.

0:15:310:15:33

You'd better.

0:15:330:15:35

-Because you're going to miss it.

-Frida...

0:15:350:15:38

I want you to leave before I finish this butterfly.

0:15:380:15:41

How are you feeling?

0:16:330:16:35

How am I feeling?

0:16:370:16:39

I can't even remember what it felt like before the pain.

0:16:390:16:43

-Isn't that horrible?

-Dr Farril is coming on Monday.

0:16:440:16:49

He is bringing a back specialist, Dr Cervantes.

0:16:490:16:53

I feel like some rich girl with a new suitor every week.

0:16:540:16:59

But all my suitors have turned into doctors.

0:16:590:17:04

And I'm not a rich girl, Papa.

0:17:040:17:06

How come you never ask me about my plans any more? Hm?

0:17:090:17:14

You used to always say, "Tell me your plans, Frida."

0:17:140:17:19

What are your plans, Frida?

0:17:210:17:24

Right now I'm a burden.

0:17:260:17:28

But I hope to be a self-sufficient cripple one day.

0:17:280:17:32

After that, I don't know.

0:17:320:17:34

You are not a burden...

0:17:340:17:37

my love.

0:17:370:17:39

See, here...

0:17:410:17:43

We have something for you.

0:17:430:17:45

Matilde, come.

0:17:450:17:46

-We noticed that there was no more room left on your cast...

-Oh!

0:17:460:17:51

-Now you look like a gringa movie star.

-Let me see.

0:19:160:19:19

-It's too much money...

-Mama, Papa.

0:19:250:19:28

I have a surprise.

0:19:280:19:31

-Careful, now!

-Don't worry. Don't worry. It's all right.

0:19:430:19:48

Aaaaaah!

0:20:050:20:09

I need the ochre.

0:20:500:20:52

-Is it ready?

-Almost.

0:20:520:20:55

No, now. I need it now.

0:20:550:20:57

Senor Rivera?

0:21:020:21:04

Diego!

0:21:060:21:08

Who are you? What do you want?

0:21:080:21:11

I have something important to discuss with you.

0:21:110:21:13

-I'm working.

-I'll wait.

0:21:150:21:18

I don't have time to chat with schoolgirls.

0:21:180:21:22

I'm not a schoolgirl, panzon.

0:21:220:21:24

OK. Come on up here.

0:21:290:21:32

No. You come down.

0:21:320:21:35

-What?

-Look, I didn't come here for fun or to flirt.

0:21:550:22:00

I've done some paintings which I want you to look over professionally,

0:22:000:22:03

and I need an absolutely straightforward opinion of my work.

0:22:030:22:06

-You were that girl in the auditorium.

-Yes, I was,

0:22:060:22:09

but that has nothing to do with now.

0:22:090:22:12

-I just want your serious opinion.

-What do you care about my opinion?

0:22:120:22:15

If you're a real painter, you'll paint because you can't live without it. You'll paint until you die, OK?

0:22:150:22:21

I have to work to earn a living, so I don't have time to fool around just for vanity.

0:22:210:22:26

If I'm not good enough, I have to do something else to help my parents.

0:22:260:22:30

Leave the best one here.

0:22:330:22:36

Go home and paint another one. If this one's any good, I'll come and look at that one on my day off.

0:22:360:22:41

Orozco is a true artist. He's tremendous.

0:22:470:22:50

And Siqueiros could be great if he'd pull his head out of his own ass and look around.

0:22:500:22:55

Comrade Rivera.

0:23:300:23:32

What a nice surprise.

0:23:320:23:34

What if I told you that

0:23:440:23:47

easel painting like yours is finished,

0:23:470:23:51

that it's headed for the trash like other elitist, bourgeois pastimes?

0:23:510:23:55

I'd say cut the propaganda.

0:23:550:23:57

This is very good work.

0:24:010:24:03

-You have real talent.

-Oh, come on.

0:24:040:24:07

I'm not looking for your compliments.

0:24:070:24:10

I want a serious critique.

0:24:100:24:12

But I'm being sincere.

0:24:120:24:14

These are very original paintings,

0:24:140:24:17

none of the usual tricks.

0:24:170:24:19

But that's not specific.

0:24:190:24:22

You have to trust a true compliment as much as a critique.

0:24:220:24:25

Yeah, well, some people have told me not to trust what you say.

0:24:250:24:30

They say if a girl asks your opinion, and she's not a complete fright, you'll gush all over her.

0:24:300:24:36

I need you to tell me one thing, honestly.

0:24:380:24:41

Do you actually believe that I should continue to paint?

0:24:410:24:44

Yes.

0:24:440:24:45

Yes.

0:24:470:24:49

You'll like Tina. She's a brilliant photographer, one of the few with real taste.

0:25:000:25:04

Do you know Alvarez Bravo?

0:25:040:25:06

I know his work. It's good.

0:25:060:25:09

I'll introduce you to him. He'll want to photograph you.

0:25:090:25:11

-Without clothes, of course.

-Of course!

0:25:110:25:14

That's the thing about these radicals.

0:25:170:25:19

They're a little dangerous, but they definitely throw the best parties.

0:25:190:25:23

-Ah, at last! Il monstro!

-Tina!

0:25:230:25:27

This is Frida Kahlo. She's a wonderful painter.

0:25:310:25:35

She wants to be a wonderful painter.

0:25:350:25:38

Don't be shy. Nobody really thinks their own stuff is good except Diego. He's the only one who's sure.

0:25:380:25:43

Go find Siqueiros. He's been bad-mouthing you again.

0:25:430:25:46

You come with me.

0:25:460:25:49

Great party.

0:25:490:25:52

Everybody, I have someone for you to meet. This is Frida Kahlo.

0:25:550:25:58

She came with Diego. Another pretty girl...

0:25:580:26:01

She's quite a talent, no?

0:26:170:26:20

Julio Mella, the Cuban.

0:26:200:26:23

Tina took the last photo of him.

0:26:230:26:25

She was with him on the street when they gunned him down.

0:26:250:26:29

LAUGHTER

0:26:290:26:32

Incredible.

0:26:320:26:34

They're like clay in his hands.

0:26:340:26:37

-It must be that body.

-No.

0:26:370:26:40

It's the way he looks at you...

0:26:400:26:42

and finds beauty in all your imperfections.

0:26:420:26:45

It's irresistible.

0:26:450:26:48

You'd never think it to look at him, but he's had half the women here.

0:26:480:26:53

I'm sorry. Did you come with him?

0:26:530:26:56

Oh, no...we're just friends.

0:26:560:26:59

I'm Frida Kahlo. I'm a painter.

0:26:590:27:02

A painter. No wonder.

0:27:020:27:04

Mm-hmm. I'm Lupe Marin. I'm his wife.

0:27:040:27:08

Ah...

0:27:080:27:10

I was his wife.

0:27:100:27:13

Good luck to you.

0:27:130:27:15

Bad-mouth him all you want, Diego.

0:27:180:27:21

But while we have been talking about socialism over drinks at parties for ten years, Stalin is making it work.

0:27:210:27:28

-He's achieving it.

-Achieving what?

0:27:280:27:31

His only big idea so far is to throw out all the real thinkers in the land.

0:27:310:27:35

-He just threw YOU out.

-No. Not just me.

0:27:350:27:38

No, not just you. Mr Trotsky...

0:27:380:27:40

-a man who plays the martyr when, in truth, he was rejected by his own country. Good riddance.

-No.

0:27:400:27:46

He had to run for his life. Stalin would have had him shot.

0:27:460:27:48

That's his version of socialism...

0:27:480:27:51

kill anyone who disagrees with you.

0:27:510:27:53

Well, some people have to get shot in a revolution, you know.

0:27:530:27:56

Well, I prefer evolution.

0:27:560:27:58

Educate the poor.

0:27:580:28:00

Mobilize the workers.

0:28:000:28:02

Rise like a slow tide. But you...

0:28:020:28:04

you'll have your revolution and kill half the poor to save them.

0:28:040:28:07

Diego, this from a Communist who's getting rich painting for the government and wealthy patrons?

0:28:070:28:13

I can't help it if the rich have good taste.

0:28:130:28:14

The rich don't have good taste.

0:28:140:28:17

They pay someone to have good taste for them.

0:28:170:28:20

And they don't hire you because you are good.

0:28:200:28:23

They hire you because you assuage their sense of guilt.

0:28:230:28:26

They use you, Diego,

0:28:260:28:29

and you are too vain to see it.

0:28:290:28:31

No! Diego, no!

0:28:320:28:35

SCREAMS

0:28:350:28:37

Basta.

0:28:390:28:41

Whoever takes the biggest swig can dance with me.

0:28:410:28:45

Bravo.

0:29:050:29:07

I'd rather have an intelligent enemy than a stupid friend...

0:29:110:29:15

Shall we?

0:29:460:29:48

INAUDIBLE

0:31:580:32:00

THEY SHOUT SLOGANS

0:32:000:32:04

-...and more women.

-Next time I'll make sure that happens, OK?

0:32:120:32:16

Miss Kahlo.

0:32:180:32:21

You may have to hold me up.

0:32:210:32:23

That Torres is a good man, but he's got to be much more careful.

0:32:250:32:28

What is this, your studio?

0:32:340:32:36

One of the benefits of being party leader - you can arrange for the drinking to be done close to home.

0:32:360:32:42

And now that you are officially a comrade, I believe I can let you see it, if you like.

0:32:420:32:47

Hey, listen.

0:32:470:32:49

-If you think I'm going to sleep with you just because you've taken me under your wing, you're wrong.

-Me?

0:32:490:32:55

I was painting murals and womanizing in peace when you came along.

0:32:550:32:59

Anyway, sex is like pissing.

0:32:590:33:01

People take it much too seriously.

0:33:010:33:04

In Russia... Oh, my God, in Russia, everyone was fucking like rabbits.

0:33:040:33:07

Well, this isn't Russia.

0:33:070:33:09

No, thank Christ.

0:33:090:33:11

I have a proposal.

0:33:130:33:16

We will not sleep together.

0:33:160:33:18

-We will solemnly swear, right here, right now, that we will be friends only.

-Fine.

0:33:180:33:24

Comrades, colleagues, and friends for ever.

0:33:240:33:29

Did you arrange for that?

0:33:440:33:46

Cost me a fortune.

0:33:470:33:50

I have a scar.

0:34:130:34:15

Let me see it.

0:34:160:34:18

You're perfect.

0:34:310:34:33

Perfect.

0:34:350:34:37

Ah...

0:35:050:35:07

Mmm! I always wanted a man with melones bigger than mine.

0:35:110:35:17

-You know what I've always loved?

-What?

-A girl with cojones.

0:35:200:35:25

Ah!

0:35:270:35:29

-Ooh! Aah!

-Oh!

0:35:310:35:34

-These are good, Frida. I love them.

-Hmm.

0:35:420:35:45

And you were probably painting better when you were 12.

0:35:450:35:48

That's nonsense.

0:35:480:35:50

-I could never paint like this.

-Oh!

0:35:500:35:53

I couldn't. I'm serious.

0:35:530:35:55

I paint what I see...

0:35:570:35:59

the world outside.

0:35:590:36:02

But you...

0:36:040:36:06

you paint from here.

0:36:060:36:08

It's wonderful.

0:36:080:36:11

I can see why you're so successful with women.

0:36:110:36:15

We'll have to get married, you know.

0:36:210:36:23

What?

0:36:240:36:26

The thing is...

0:36:260:36:28

I think it's quite possible that we were born for each other,

0:36:300:36:34

so we should marry.

0:36:340:36:36

But you don't believe in marriage.

0:36:360:36:39

Of course I do. I've had two wives already.

0:36:390:36:41

Exactly.

0:36:410:36:43

You can't be true to only one woman.

0:36:430:36:44

True, yes.

0:36:440:36:47

Faithful...

0:36:470:36:50

no.

0:36:500:36:52

-Unfortunately, I'm physiologically incapable of fidelity.

-Oh, really?

0:36:520:36:57

Yes. A doctor acquaintance of mine confirmed this.

0:36:570:37:01

What a convenient diagnosis.

0:37:010:37:03

Is fidelity that important to you?

0:37:040:37:07

Loyalty is important to me.

0:37:110:37:14

-Can you be loyal?

-To you?

0:37:140:37:17

-Always.

-Good.

0:37:170:37:20

Because I love you, panzon.

0:37:200:37:22

Fridocha.

0:37:220:37:25

I accept!

0:37:250:37:27

What a beautiful bride you are.

0:37:440:37:46

-Don't touch me!

-Oh, you think I'm going to hit you?

0:37:550:37:59

But he's divorced twice. He's had God knows how many children.

0:37:590:38:03

And he's an atheist, Guillermo.

0:38:030:38:05

Perhaps you have forgotten, and forgive me for reminding you,

0:38:050:38:08

but I am a German Jew, and you married me, remember?

0:38:080:38:12

-Yes.

-Hmm.

0:38:120:38:14

He's also a Communist.

0:38:140:38:15

A Communist who is generous enough to pay off our mortgage.

0:38:150:38:19

It's like the marriage of an elephant and a dove.

0:38:190:38:22

Oh, your toe!

0:39:060:39:08

It's been a long time.

0:39:100:39:12

-I don't want to talk.

-I told you I wanted you to come.

0:39:120:39:15

-I don't want to talk!

-Please! Cris... Cristina!

-Get back!

0:39:150:39:22

-I give them...six months.

-Six?

0:39:390:39:43

I give them two.

0:39:430:39:45

-I don't believe in marriage.

-LAUGHTER

0:39:490:39:53

No, I really don't! Let me be clear about that.

0:39:530:39:56

I think at worst it's a hostile political act,

0:39:560:39:59

a way for small-minded men to keep women in the house and out of the way,

0:39:590:40:05

wrapped up in the guise of tradition and conservative religious nonsense.

0:40:050:40:10

At best, it's a happy delusion.

0:40:100:40:13

These two people who truly love each other

0:40:130:40:15

and have no idea how truly miserable they're about to make each other.

0:40:150:40:20

LAUGHTER

0:40:200:40:22

But... But... when two people know that,

0:40:220:40:26

and they decide with eyes wide open to face each other and get married anyway,

0:40:260:40:33

then I don't think it's conservative or delusional.

0:40:330:40:36

I think it's radical and courageous and very romantic.

0:40:360:40:41

-To Diego and Frida.

-Diego and Frida.

You're crazy! You know that? You're crazy.

0:41:400:41:43

You son of a bitch!

0:41:430:41:45

You like these legs?

0:41:470:41:49

-Oh, Lupe. Lupe, no.

-You like those legs, Diego?

0:41:490:41:53

You give up these beauties, for these matchsticks? This peg leg?

0:41:530:41:58

Mira! Mira!

0:41:580:42:01

DIEGO LAUGHS

0:42:070:42:10

Viva la revolucion.

0:42:190:42:22

Ay!

0:42:300:42:32

My mother was wrong about you, you know?

0:42:320:42:35

She said you were an elephant. But you're not.

0:42:350:42:38

Elephants are strong and courageous, and they defend their mates.

0:42:380:42:42

You are a toad. You even look like a toad.

0:42:420:42:45

And you look like a dog. Dove! Dove!

0:42:450:42:49

Did I say dog? No, I meant dove.

0:42:490:42:51

You are my little paloma.

0:42:540:42:56

What will people say about such a pair?

0:43:060:43:08

They'll have never seen a better match.

0:43:090:43:12

Thank you.

0:43:190:43:21

For what?

0:43:210:43:23

For making a fat, old, crazy Communist a happy man.

0:43:230:43:27

Ohh...

0:43:310:43:33

NOISES FROM KITCHEN

0:43:370:43:40

Sit. Eat.

0:43:550:43:57

Mi amor!

0:44:000:44:03

-Mmm!

-Good, eh?

0:44:080:44:10

Mmm!

0:44:100:44:12

What a wonderful morning!

0:44:120:44:14

Lupe's special recipe.

0:44:140:44:16

Well, you've mastered it.

0:44:160:44:19

I can't cook to save my life.

0:44:190:44:21

She brought it down for us while you were sleeping.

0:44:210:44:24

-Brought it down?

-Mm. She's in the apartment upstairs with my kids.

0:44:260:44:29

I let her have it till she finds a place in town.

0:44:290:44:32

I'm not just passing through, you know! I'm here to stay!

0:44:500:44:53

Is that what you came to tell me?

0:44:530:44:55

I'm here to stay.

0:44:550:44:58

So stay out of my damn kitchen.

0:44:580:45:01

You like my mole?

0:45:020:45:04

-So-so.

-Well, he lives for it.

0:45:060:45:08

So if you're here to stay, you better learn how to make it.

0:45:080:45:12

I was so angry. He didn't come home for three days. Pass me the cilantro.

0:45:120:45:17

So, I took two of his damn Aztec idols, that he adores, you know.

0:45:170:45:24

And I smashed the pieces of clay in the boiling pot of beef stock and told him it was sopa Azteca.

0:45:240:45:31

-Medea! Did he eat it?

-He did.

-Did he like it?

0:45:310:45:36

He loved it.

0:45:360:45:38

Of course, until he found out.

0:45:400:45:43

Then he got sick. He got furious. Oof!

0:45:430:45:46

It didn't make me feel any better.

0:45:470:45:50

And it definitely didn't stop him from cheating.

0:45:500:45:53

But what the hell?

0:45:530:45:56

Mama... > CLATTERING

0:45:560:45:59

Brute! Get out!

0:45:590:46:01

Come on! Ven aqui. Oh...

0:46:010:46:05

Marie! ..Come on. Let's go... Time for your nap.

0:46:070:46:14

The other night...I was very drunk.

0:46:190:46:22

I know. It's all right.

0:46:220:46:24

SHE SIGHS

0:46:280:46:30

Diego has never belonged to anybody.

0:46:320:46:35

He belongs only to himself.

0:46:350:46:37

And that, of course, is what makes him so desirable.

0:46:370:46:40

He's the best of friends and the worst of husbands.

0:46:400:46:46

Diego will never be anyone's husband. Not really.

0:46:460:46:50

We'll see.

0:46:500:46:51

You'll know it's over when he gets the next commission out of town.

0:46:510:46:55

He'll say he'll send for you, then he never does.

0:46:550:46:58

-Senora Rivera?...

-Yes?

-Yes?

0:46:580:47:00

What do you think?

0:47:460:47:47

The tits lack...gravity.

0:47:540:47:57

Oh, come on!

0:47:570:47:59

Eat your posole while it's still hot.

0:48:020:48:04

It's not like you to be late for lunch, Diego.

0:49:060:49:09

I was at the ministry explaining why a history of the Mexican people

0:49:090:49:13

-is an appropriate subject for the Mexican National Palace.

-Again?

0:49:130:49:17

When I work, they scream about my politics.

0:49:180:49:20

When I don't work, they scream about the delays.

0:49:200:49:23

It's a farce.

0:49:230:49:25

Ugh. Diego!

0:49:270:49:29

-That model, huh?

-Yes.

0:49:330:49:35

It was just a fuck, that's all.

0:49:390:49:41

I've given more affection in a handshake.

0:49:410:49:44

Well, that makes me feel so much better.

0:49:470:49:49

Was she good, at least?

0:49:530:49:55

Not very.

0:49:550:49:56

Too bad. She had such a great ass.

0:49:560:50:00

When you get home, take a good bath.

0:50:020:50:04

We're going out tonight.

0:50:040:50:06

SHE SINGS IN SPANISH

0:50:070:50:10

More tequila!

0:51:010:51:03

Rivera! Hey!

0:51:050:51:08

Yeah, you.

0:51:080:51:10

You know what I think of you and your stinking murals?

0:51:100:51:13

HE SPITS

0:51:130:51:15

Why don't you get the fuck out of here, huh?

0:51:150:51:17

This is a bar for workers, not for government whores.

0:51:170:51:20

SHE STARTS TO SING

0:51:310:51:34

I tell you, that kid was one of Siqueiros' boys.

0:51:410:51:43

Siqueiros is a hero to these fucks, but what's he actually done? Nothing!

0:51:430:51:47

I put socialism on the government walls.

0:51:470:51:49

The Fascists call me the most dangerous subversive in the country,

0:51:490:51:53

-and

-I'm

-the traitor to the party?

0:51:530:51:56

Soon we'll have no-one left to drink with.

0:51:560:51:58

-It's not funny.

-I'm not kidding.

0:51:580:52:00

Tina says they'll kick you out of the party for the Palace mural.

0:52:000:52:04

They won't have to. I quit.

0:52:040:52:06

So you'll quit and keep on working.

0:52:060:52:08

That's all that matters to you any way.

0:52:080:52:11

I've been offered a show in New York.

0:52:110:52:13

A solo exhibition at the new Modern Museum.

0:52:140:52:17

It would be a wonderful entree.

0:52:170:52:19

I could get commissions out of it.

0:52:190:52:21

I thought you'd be excited.

0:52:270:52:30

They don't care that you're a Communist pig?

0:52:300:52:33

They can't afford to.

0:52:330:52:35

All the greatest painters are Communist pigs.

0:52:350:52:38

That's wonderful, Diego.

0:52:420:52:45

When do you leave?

0:52:450:52:47

As soon as you decide to come with me.

0:52:490:52:51

Oh, mi monstrito! We'll take Gringolandia by storm.

0:52:540:52:59

'Dear Cristi, the invasion of Gringolandia has begun.

0:53:020:53:05

'They are never gonna know what hit them.

0:53:080:53:10

'New York has Diego on fire.'

0:53:100:53:13

-What's your impression of New York, Mr Rivera?

-Magnificent.

0:53:130:53:17

There is no reason why any artist born in our two continents

0:53:170:53:21

should go to Europe for inspiration.

0:53:210:53:23

It is all here... the might, the power, the energy.

0:53:230:53:28

The sadness. The glory and youthfulness of our American lands.

0:53:280:53:34

'I see the majesty that Diego sees.

0:53:340:53:37

'But all that American comfort is a myth.

0:53:370:53:39

'While the rich drink their coctelitos, thousands are starving.

0:53:390:53:44

'Diego is working almost constantly to prepare for his show, so I have to find ways to entertain myself.'

0:53:440:53:51

Aah! Aah! Aah!

0:53:510:53:55

Aargh!

0:53:550:53:57

SIREN SOUNDS

0:54:040:54:06

Grrr! Grrr!

0:54:100:54:13

SHE SCREAMS

0:54:130:54:16

Breaking all records, over 50,000 people have lined up outside

0:54:160:54:20

New York's new Museum of Modern Art

0:54:200:54:22

to see the paintings of Mexico's greatest artist, Diego Rivera,

0:54:220:54:27

the most talked about man this side of the Rio Grande.

0:54:270:54:30

Senor Diego Rivera! CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:54:330:54:37

'The gringos are friendly enough, but the most important thing in

0:54:370:54:41

'Gringolandia is to have ambition, to succeed in becoming somebody.

0:54:410:54:45

'And the somebodies are the only ones that interest them.

0:54:450:54:48

'I despise this pretension.

0:54:480:54:50

'Being la gran caca interests me not at all.

0:54:500:54:53

'Of course, Diego loves it.

0:54:530:54:56

'He's like a big Mexican pinata with enough candy for everyone.

0:54:560:55:01

'Everything about this country inspires him.'

0:55:010:55:04

Two loose eggs, hot cinnamon bun, two black coffees. Anything else?

0:55:210:55:26

That's fine. Thank you.

0:55:260:55:27

OK. Are you guys ready? Hmm?

0:55:290:55:31

Well, I never thought I'd hear myself say this,

0:55:350:55:39

but you were

0:55:390:55:41

better than your husband.

0:55:410:55:43

You weren't upset about that, were you?

0:55:470:55:49

I mean he... he said you wouldn't be.

0:55:520:55:55

Oh, he did, did he?

0:55:550:55:58

Well, you weren't the first, and you won't be the last.

0:55:580:56:01

Why do you put up with it?

0:56:050:56:07

Look, Diego's how he is, and that's how I love him.

0:56:090:56:13

I cannot love him for what he's not.

0:56:130:56:16

Anyway, my sweet Gracie,

0:56:170:56:22

I get along just fine.

0:56:220:56:24

-Congratulations.

-Thank you.

0:56:300:56:32

-Over here.

-Can we get your picture?

-Mr Rivera...

0:56:320:56:35

-That's a lot of wall.

-It's all there is.

0:56:350:56:38

Please. Please, I have to get back to work. I'm sorry.

0:56:450:56:48

Are you a painter too, Mrs Rivera?

0:56:520:56:55

No. Just killing time.

0:56:550:56:58

She's much better than me.

0:56:580:57:01

You'll see.

0:57:010:57:03

What did the doctor say?

0:57:140:57:16

He might be able to improve the pain, but the bones would have to be reset. Blah, blah, blah.

0:57:180:57:23

Blah, blah, blah. The usual speech. I know it by heart.

0:57:230:57:26

(I'm pregnant.)

0:57:280:57:30

Oh.

0:57:340:57:35

Can your body take it?

0:57:380:57:40

-If it can take you, it can take a little Dieguito.

-No, no, Frida.

0:57:400:57:44

He's not very optimistic.

0:57:440:57:46

This is not...

0:57:480:57:50

SHE SIGHS

0:57:500:57:51

I can't bear to think of you in pain.

0:57:510:57:54

I'm used to pain.

0:57:540:57:55

This is not...

0:57:570:58:00

I'm not a good example of...

0:58:000:58:02

It's not a good time.

0:58:030:58:06

There's the Rockefeller commission.

0:58:060:58:08

Detroit. Chicago. All that travelling.

0:58:080:58:11

No, it's too much.

0:58:110:58:13

You really want this baby, Frida?

0:58:190:58:22

-I do.

-All right.

0:58:250:58:28

-All right?

-All right, let's try and have this baby.

0:58:300:58:33

Shh, shh, shh.

0:58:370:58:39

Listen, listen.

0:58:390:58:41

Hmm.

0:58:430:58:45

He's reciting The Communist Manifesto.

Hoy!

0:59:140:59:15

-She's lost a lot of blood.

-I want to see her!

0:59:320:59:35

She needs to sleep. You should go home and try and get some rest.

0:59:350:59:38

-Frida!

-You should be in bed, Mrs Rivera.

0:59:380:59:42

-The baby came out in pieces.

-Come with me. Let's go back to bed.

0:59:420:59:45

It never formed properly.

0:59:450:59:47

-We can try again, but you must rest...

-Mrs Rivera...

-But he's my son.

-Mrs Rivera.

0:59:470:59:51

I want to see him!

0:59:510:59:53

What did you do with him?!

0:59:530:59:55

I want to see my son!

0:59:550:59:57

-Mr Rivera, please...

-Hey!

-What did you do with him?!

0:59:571:00:00

All right, chiquita, I'll take care of it.

1:00:001:00:02

-Diego...

-I promise.

1:00:061:00:08

I promise.

1:00:081:00:09

HE SOBS

1:00:551:00:58

-What the hell is this?

-Breakfast.

1:01:371:01:40

You trying to kill me?

1:01:401:01:42

-I need fuel to work.

-Listen, panzon, if you get any fatter, it's going to be you in the hospital next time.

1:01:421:01:48

You know, I don't believe in God,

1:01:481:01:50

but I still thank him every day that he kept you safe for me.

1:01:501:01:53

Hmm, really?

1:01:531:01:55

I tell him he's got a lot of explaining to do.

1:01:551:01:58

DIEGO LAUGHS

1:01:581:01:59

From now on, I'm going to get Rockefeller to bring my breakfast over from 21.

1:01:591:02:03

Uh-oh.

1:02:031:02:05

Frida?

1:02:071:02:09

WOMEN PRAY QUIETLY

1:02:121:02:15

Frida. You are here.

1:02:181:02:21

THEY PRAY QUIETLY

1:02:311:02:33

I left him.

1:02:411:02:42

And that was his parting gift?

1:02:441:02:46

I should have been there for you.

1:02:491:02:51

You're here now.

1:02:561:02:58

She'll throw a fit if I let her damn plants die.

1:03:101:03:13

We fought so much. Sometimes I...

1:03:161:03:20

sometimes I would regret that I ever married her.

1:03:201:03:23

I would think how I hated her.

1:03:251:03:26

You do enough damage to one another, you begin to think that way.

1:03:291:03:34

Well, then she gets sick and...

1:03:341:03:37

I tend her garden.

MOB CRIES OUT ANGRILY

1:04:161:04:18

You'd seen my work. You knew my politics when you hired me.

1:04:191:04:23

-Yes.

-I showed you the sketches.

1:04:231:04:24

-I discussed them with you and your father.

-Yes.

1:04:241:04:27

What were you expecting? A line of dancing girls?

1:04:271:04:29

No, but nor was I expecting a portrait of Lenin.

1:04:291:04:33

Now, let's be honest. In the sketches that you showed me originally, it was just some anonymous worker.

1:04:331:04:38

He transformed himself into Lenin of his own accord.

1:04:381:04:41

-No,

-you

-transformed him into Lenin because they took shots at us in the paper!

1:04:411:04:45

Do you really think that my family is influenced by newspaper hacks?

1:04:451:04:50

I would've defended you.

1:04:501:04:52

I will defend you against any attack because the work is thrilling.

1:04:521:04:56

As always.

1:04:561:04:59

But a portrait of Vladimir Lenin will offend many people,

1:04:591:05:04

in particular, my father.

1:05:041:05:06

You see, you're putting me in an impossible position.

1:05:061:05:10

So I'm asking you to please change this one detail.

1:05:101:05:13

It's against my principles.

1:05:151:05:17

Yes, well, you've adjusted your principles to come to our parties and eat at our table,

1:05:181:05:23

so I hope you will reconsider.

1:05:231:05:25

MOB CRIES OUT

1:05:261:05:29

You've got quite a crowd out there. Half of them think you're the devil.

1:05:321:05:36

Half of them think you're a hero.

1:05:381:05:40

Tell me honestly what you think.

1:05:401:05:43

-If you lie down with dogs, you should expect fleas.

-No, seriously.

1:05:431:05:47

-This is really frightening me.

-Why?

1:05:471:05:50

Because I'm actually wondering if he's right.

1:05:501:05:53

Perhaps I am being foolish,

1:05:531:05:55

-risking too much.

-Diego, you can't lose.

1:05:551:05:59

Forget about artistic integrity.

1:05:591:06:00

You've done better ones than this, and you'll do more.

1:06:001:06:03

But whatever happens, you have aroused people.

1:06:031:06:06

You've made them get passionate about their ideals.

1:06:061:06:09

There's not another painter in the world who can say that.

1:06:091:06:12

He could walk in here tomorrow and tear it down. You'd still have won.

1:06:131:06:17

Ah, maybe.

He doesn't have the balls.

1:06:271:06:28

Senor Rivera. I must ask you one last time to reconsider your position.

1:06:391:06:44

I will not compromise my vision.

1:06:471:06:49

In that case, this is your fee,

1:06:531:06:56

paid in full, as agreed.

1:06:561:06:59

But your services are no longer required.

1:06:591:07:01

They tore down the wall, but the painting is up here.

1:08:041:08:07

I'll do it again, and I'll use his money!

1:08:071:08:09

-What money? We don't even have enough to get to Chicago.

-We're not going to Chicago.

1:08:091:08:13

They cancelled the commission.

1:08:131:08:14

It's time to go home.

1:08:161:08:18

What?! With my tail between my legs?

1:08:181:08:21

We don't belong here. I am tired of these people, and I am tired of who you are around them.

1:08:211:08:25

See that?! Hmm?

1:08:271:08:28

You want to go back to that?!

1:08:281:08:30

Yes! I want to go back to that!

1:08:341:08:36

Ahh.

1:09:061:09:07

-I'm working.

-I can see that.

1:09:201:09:23

I brought you some lunch.

1:09:231:09:25

The doctor says you should eat more, for once.

1:09:251:09:28

Puta madre!

1:10:071:10:11

Diego.

1:10:121:10:14

You need help.

1:10:141:10:16

Frida, why do you and Diego have separate houses?

1:10:231:10:26

Because we are two different people, but our love makes us into one.

1:10:261:10:30

That's why we have the bridge.

1:10:301:10:32

So, you mean, the bridge is your love?

1:10:321:10:36

Yeah. That's a good way to put it.

1:10:361:10:38

Then why is it such a small bridge?

1:10:381:10:41

He's not working. He's sick.

1:10:431:10:46

He's depressed.

1:10:461:10:48

He says the people in this country are like mules, they're so stupid.

1:10:481:10:51

And he blames it all on me for making him come back.

1:10:511:10:54

That's ridiculous.

1:10:541:10:56

Still, you are lucky to have him.

1:10:561:11:00

I feel so desperate every day.

1:11:001:11:03

Sometimes I even think of going back.

1:11:031:11:06

Well, you're not.

1:11:061:11:08

What about a job?

1:11:121:11:13

-You could help me out organizing Diego's studio.

-Where do I start?

1:11:131:11:16

-Don't touch anything.

Diego's not giving you any money?

1:15:511:15:52

I'd rather be poor.

1:15:521:15:56

She was my sister,

not some model.

-Not enough to cover your bar bill.

1:16:101:16:14

No, don't get me wrong. I love your paintings.

1:16:151:16:17

I'm just not sure you should count on them for a living.

1:16:171:16:21

They're tough, you know.

1:16:211:16:23

I mean, look at this. What the hell is this?

1:16:231:16:28

It was in the damn papers.

1:16:281:16:32

A man stabbed his wife 22 times, and when the judge asked him why

1:16:321:16:36

he did it, he said, "But it was just a few small nips."

1:16:361:16:39

Oh.

1:16:431:16:45

-Who's that?

-The ghost of Frida Kahlo.

Oh, I remember her.

1:17:031:17:06

How are you?

1:17:061:17:08

Lonely.

1:17:081:17:09

Only you ghosts come to visit these days.

1:17:091:17:13

So, how is your Diego?

1:17:141:17:17

I don't know why I called him that.

1:17:191:17:22

He was never mine. Never will be.

1:17:221:17:25

But he's fine. Painting, I guess.

1:17:251:17:27

-And you? Are you also painting?

-Yes.

1:17:271:17:30

And I want you to pose for me. You don't even have to leave the house.

1:17:301:17:33

I want to leave the house.

1:17:331:17:35

All right, then. We'll go somewhere different every day.

1:17:351:17:39

That sounds good. You've painted everyone else in the family.

1:17:391:17:42

Yes.

1:17:431:17:45

A long time ago.

Frida.

1:18:281:18:29

She never liked you, you know.

1:18:341:18:37

She told me you would only bring me troubles.

1:18:371:18:40

There is something I must discuss with you.

1:18:481:18:50

A favour I need to ask of you.

1:18:531:18:55

You've got a lot of nerve to come here asking me to do you favours.

1:18:581:19:02

No, it's not for me. It's Trotsky.

1:19:021:19:04

The Norwegians have expelled him, no other country will take him, and Stalin wants him dead.

1:19:041:19:09

I have appealed to President Cardenas myself.

1:19:091:19:12

They have granted him asylum here in Mexico.

1:19:121:19:15

I want you to welcome him with me.

1:19:171:19:20

Let him live in your father's house.

1:19:201:19:23

I know it's a lot to ask, but this is a difficult transition for them.

1:19:231:19:27

And you, Frida...

1:19:281:19:30

..you bring life and warmth to any place.

1:19:321:19:37

Anyway...

1:19:371:19:39

Trotsky is a very great man in enormous danger, and we have the opportunity to help him.

1:19:391:19:45

Yes, all right.

1:19:481:19:50

Such commotion.

1:19:571:19:58

I don't understand, such a commotion for a philosopher.

1:19:581:20:02

A very great man, Papa. A true revolutionary.

1:20:021:20:06

It's an important service we're doing.

1:20:061:20:08

If you admire him, why don't you advise him not to get involved in politics?

1:20:081:20:11

Politics are ruinous.

1:20:111:20:14

Good advice, Papa. I'm sure he'll agree.

1:20:141:20:16

I regret it was not possible for me to meet you at your boat.

1:20:391:20:43

Natalia and I, we are deeply indebted to you for your generosity in these difficult times.

1:20:431:20:49

Your charming wife, she has made the last leg of our trip such a delight.

1:20:491:20:54

We are profoundly honoured to have you and your wife in our home.

1:21:121:21:14

These people are idiots! They scream about Hitler's aggression,

1:21:141:21:18

and then sing Stalin's praises. Aren't they the same creature?

1:21:181:21:22

Yes, but not exactly. Of course they are both monsters,

1:21:221:21:26

-but Hitler at least is a madman with a vision.

-Vision? He's insane!

1:21:261:21:30

Of course he is insane, but he has the ability

1:21:301:21:33

to mobilise the people's minds, whereas Stalin, he's...

1:21:331:21:37

he is so dull. LAUGHTER

1:21:371:21:40

There is the brutality, but when you get right down to it,

1:21:411:21:44

Stalin is nothing but a bureaucrat,

1:21:441:21:47

and that is what is smothering our revolution.

1:21:471:21:51

They are the same, but only in that the insanity of power has overruled them.

1:21:511:21:56

And between them, they will consume the continent.

1:21:561:21:59

-Madness.

-Yes, but a challenge.

1:21:591:22:04

Look at us!

1:22:041:22:05

Mexican, Russian, French, in this wonderful new planet Rivera!

1:22:051:22:10

I tell you this, my friends, in the experience of my lifetime,

1:22:141:22:19

the failure and the pain have certainly outstripped the triumphs.

1:22:191:22:24

But this has not only not destroyed my faith, my faith in reason,

1:22:241:22:28

in truth, in human solidarity, but, on the contrary,

1:22:281:22:32

it has made it indestructible.

1:22:321:22:35

I see the hope of the world in you, and, from my heart, I thank you.

1:22:351:22:41

-Na zdorov'ya!.

-Na zdorov'ya!

-Salud!

-Salud!

1:22:411:22:45

Imagine living your life like that,

1:22:451:22:47

-with a price on your head, and staying so calm.

-Yes.

1:22:471:22:53

Good night, Diego.

1:22:551:22:57

Whoo!

1:23:421:23:44

Oh, stop it, Andre.

1:23:461:23:48

-I hate flattery.

-I don't care. It is wonderful, wonderful work.

1:23:481:23:52

-Have you seen all these?

-Of course. I tell her all the time.

1:23:521:23:55

Julian Levy took a couple of her paintings to New York,

1:23:551:23:58

and sold both of them,

1:23:581:23:59

and she sold another four to that actor, the gangster.

1:23:591:24:02

-Edward G. Robinson.

-Yeah, for 200 apiece.

1:24:021:24:05

He was robbed. We haven't been able to fool anyone else.

1:24:051:24:09

My little paintings can't mean anything to anyone but me.

1:24:091:24:12

Stop! Get down! They put a bag by the door! Get back!

1:24:121:24:16

-Let's get inside.

-Get back!

-Inside, quickly.

1:24:161:24:19

-Cover him! Hurry!

-Inside!

1:24:191:24:20

Frida! Frida, what are you doing?

1:24:201:24:23

I give you five seconds to get out of here.

1:24:251:24:28

One, two...

1:24:281:24:30

GUN FIRES, WOMEN SCREAM

1:24:301:24:34

It's all right. It's all right. Sorry about that.

1:24:341:24:39

-It was my mother's sisters.

-What do you mean?

1:24:391:24:41

They were leaving icons, and sprinkling holy water.

1:24:411:24:44

They think this house is cursed, and you are the Antichrist.

1:24:441:24:47

I want you to think about it seriously.

1:25:151:25:18

You could be part of the Mexican exhibition in Paris.

1:25:181:25:21

What I really want is a show in my own country.

1:25:211:25:23

Which they will give you, once you become famous somewhere else.

1:25:231:25:27

Your paintings should be seen.

1:25:271:25:29

-So, who is coming up with me?

-It's harder than you think.

1:25:291:25:33

-Ah, everything is harder than we think.

-I'll go!

-Are you sure?

1:25:331:25:37

If an old man can do it, why not a cripple?

1:25:371:25:41

No, no, no, no.

1:25:451:25:47

-It's OK. I don't think assassins are waiting at the top.

-I'll race you.

1:25:471:25:52

Frida, how were you hurt?

1:26:151:26:20

I couldn't even tell you any more.

1:26:221:26:24

I've been cut into, rebroke, and reset so many times.

1:26:241:26:28

I'm like a jigsaw puzzle.

1:26:281:26:30

And all the operations have done more damage than the accident, for all I know.

1:26:301:26:35

Everything hurts.

1:26:351:26:37

But the leg, the leg is the worst.

1:26:371:26:41

But I'm all right.

1:26:491:26:51

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

1:26:511:26:55

That's what I loved about your paintings,

1:26:581:27:01

that they carry that message.

1:27:011:27:03

You said that nobody would care about them, but I think you are wrong,

1:27:031:27:07

because your paintings express what everyone feels...

1:27:071:27:10

..that they are alone in pain.

1:27:121:27:15

Maybe.

1:27:151:27:16

Leon, tell me about your children.

1:27:191:27:22

My children.

1:27:231:27:26

We knew the girls had been murdered, and one of the boys.

1:27:261:27:30

We thought the other was still alive in the prison.

1:27:301:27:34

But that letter came.

1:27:341:27:35

He was executed, too. They are all gone.

1:27:351:27:39

I have condemned my family, as I am condemned.

1:27:401:27:45

-You mustn't say that.

-But it's true.

1:27:451:27:48

Stalin has more power than any tsar.

1:27:481:27:51

I'm alone, with few friends,

1:27:511:27:53

and no resources against the world's biggest killing machine.

1:27:531:27:58

So, what can I do, but keep on working, living.

1:27:591:28:04

You cannot imagine what a joy it is for me to be here,

1:28:041:28:09

to see all this.

1:28:091:28:11

It is the first time I felt like a real person in years.

1:28:111:28:16

In his book, "State and Revolution",

1:29:271:29:31

Lenin purged from the genuine teaching of Karl Marx

1:29:311:29:35

all the spurious ingredients introduced by the social democracy.

1:29:351:29:41

John, I am picking it up from "social democracy".

1:30:151:30:17

Frida!

1:30:231:30:25

-This is the book I mentioned. Tell me what you think.

-Thank you.

1:30:281:30:34

I'll be back in an hour!

< TROTSKYS ARGUE IN RUSSIAN

1:30:501:30:57

No, no, no, no, no. It is better this way.

1:31:121:31:14

We will stop disrupting your lives.

1:31:141:31:18

We're not going far, just around the corner.

1:31:181:31:21

I wish you would reconsider, if only for security.

1:31:211:31:24

We will be more than safe.

1:31:241:31:27

-Trust me.

-Do svidaniya.

1:31:271:31:30

Many thanks, my friend.

1:31:301:31:31

We'll see you soon.

1:31:361:31:39

Natalia.

1:31:391:31:40

It makes no sense. It was for his own well-being.

1:32:051:32:08

He's not thinking of his well-being. He's thinking of hers.

1:32:081:32:11

What are you talking about?

1:32:131:32:14

I'm talking about somebody willing to sacrifice some of their own pleasure,

1:32:191:32:23

rather than go on hurting the woman who loves him.

1:32:231:32:26

-Have you lost your mind?

-Go to hell, Diego.

1:32:301:32:32

You know what the consequences of this could be?

1:32:321:32:35

-He's not scared. Why should you be?

-Dear God, Frida, of all people, why?

1:32:351:32:39

Because we wanted to.

1:32:391:32:42

You've broken my heart, Frida.

1:32:461:32:48

It hurts, doesn't it?

1:32:521:32:54

But why?

1:32:541:32:56

It was just a fuck, like a handshake.

1:32:561:32:58

I told you who I was when you married me.

1:32:581:33:00

Yes, you did, and I married you anyway,

1:33:001:33:04

and you promised to be loyal.

1:33:041:33:06

You've been my comrade, my fellow artist, my best friend.

1:33:081:33:14

-But you've never been my husband.

-Fridocha...

1:33:161:33:19

'Dear Diego, how are you, panzon?'

1:33:501:33:53

'Why didn't you tell me Paris was such a nightmare?'

1:33:541:33:57

SHE SINGS IN FRENCH

1:33:571:34:00

'The French are the most pretentious bores in the world.'

1:34:061:34:09

'I'd rather sit on the floor of a market in Toluca, selling tortillas,

1:34:091:34:13

'than have to listen to the prattling of the artistic bitches of Paris.'

1:34:131:34:18

'There really hasn't been as much interest in the exhibition as Breton promised.'

1:34:511:34:55

'Mexican artists are nothing but an exotic curiosity here.'

1:34:581:35:03

'All in all, it's been lonely, and I crave news from home.'

1:35:041:35:09

'Diego, this letter is a lie.'

1:35:111:35:15

'Paris has been good to me.'

1:35:151:35:16

'But without you, it means nothing.'

1:35:161:35:19

'All the rage of our 12 years together passes through me,

1:35:191:35:23

'and I am left knowing that I love you more than my own skin.'

1:35:231:35:26

'And though you may not love me as much, you do love me a little, don't you?'

1:35:261:35:31

'If this is not true, I'll always be hopeful that it could be.'

'I adore you. Frida.'

< SCREAMS AND COMMOTION

1:35:571:36:00

There are rumours going around that I wanted Trotsky killed.

1:36:131:36:17

We fought lately, it's true, but...

1:36:171:36:19

They may try to arrest me again.

1:36:211:36:24

-Talk to the president.

-No. No, I'm going to California.

1:36:241:36:29

-California?

-Yes.

1:36:291:36:31

And, Frida...

1:36:341:36:37

I want us to divorce.

1:36:371:36:39

For who? That American actress?

1:36:431:36:46

-Jesus, Diego.

-No, Frida, no.

1:36:461:36:49

It will be better. We have both done better as friends.

1:36:491:36:52

-I haven't.

-You have.

1:36:521:36:54

-You're doing well. I'm proud of you. You don't need...

-Enough.

Listen to me.

1:39:361:39:37

I don't particularly care for Mr. Trotsky,

1:39:371:39:40

but we can't go around having political refugees murdered in our country, now, can we?

1:39:401:39:46

Once more.

1:39:511:39:52

Where is your husband?

1:39:521:39:55

I don't have a husband.

Oh, my God.

1:40:161:40:18

I'm so sorry.

1:40:221:40:23

It was not your fault.

1:40:311:40:32

It was mine.

1:40:321:40:33

I should have never put you in the room with him.

1:40:351:40:38

What did you do to get me out of here?

1:40:411:40:44

Diego. He went crazy when he heard.

1:40:441:40:47

He called President Cardenas immediately.

1:40:471:40:50

Ay...Diego.

1:40:511:40:54

Not much more.

1:41:031:41:04

How long has your foot been like this?

1:41:201:41:23

Who knows? Let's take one disaster at a time.

1:41:231:41:25

Just patch me up so I can paint, please.

1:41:251:41:28

These are gangrened. They'll have to come off.

1:41:281:41:31

You're lucky it hasn't spread to your leg.

1:41:311:41:35

You've lost weight.

1:42:381:42:40

You've lost your toes.

1:42:421:42:44

Is that why you're here?

1:42:461:42:47

To offer your condolences?

1:42:471:42:49

I'm here to see how you are.

1:42:541:42:57

-How do you feel?

-Tired of answering that question.

1:42:571:43:02

Otherwise, like shit. How are you?

1:43:021:43:05

I'm...

1:43:081:43:09

I'm here to ask you to marry me.

1:43:131:43:17

I don't need rescuing, Diego.

1:43:201:43:22

I do.

1:43:221:43:23

I've lost the toes of one foot.

1:43:261:43:28

My back is useless. I have an infection of the kidneys.

1:43:281:43:31

I smoke. I drink. I curse.

1:43:311:43:35

I can't have children.

1:43:351:43:37

I have no money, and a stack of hospital bills. Should I keep going?

1:43:371:43:41

That's practically a letter of recommendation.

I want you to burn this Judas of a body.

1:46:161:46:18

I don't want to be buried.

1:46:181:46:21

I've spent enough time lying down.

1:46:211:46:23

Burn it.

1:46:251:46:26

Frida...

1:46:261:46:28

No, I don't think I'm Frida any more.

1:46:281:46:31

I think all the Frida in me has disappeared.

1:46:311:46:34

Look at what's left.

1:46:341:46:36

Why do you stay?

1:46:421:46:44

You stupid girl.

1:46:481:46:50

Are you crazy? I forbid it!

1:46:591:47:01

Stop it, Diego! You can't force me to stay!

1:47:011:47:03

-Oh, yes, I can!

-Give it to me!

1:47:031:47:05

No, Frida! No, we've been through all this before!

1:47:051:47:08

I'm going, damn it! Give me back my fucking leg!

1:47:081:47:11

-Doctor, please help me.

-What's going on here?

1:47:111:47:15

I told her she had to stay in bed. She demanded we call you.

1:47:151:47:18

-I'm going to my exhibition.

-Frida...

1:47:181:47:20

I've waited for a show in my own country my whole life.

1:47:201:47:23

I'm not going to miss it.

1:47:231:47:24

If the bronchitis gets worse, it will turn into pneumonia.

1:47:281:47:32

Frida, under no circumstances are you to leave this bed.

1:47:321:47:35

I'll bring you back all the gossip, I promise.

1:47:351:47:37

CRISTINA!

1:47:491:47:51

There was this skinny kid, with these eyebrows, shouting up at me,

1:47:531:47:57

"Diego, I want to show you my paintings!"

1:47:571:47:59

But, of course, she made me come down to her.

1:47:591:48:01

THEY LAUGH

1:48:011:48:05

I did, and... I've never stopped looking.

1:48:051:48:09

But I want to speak about Frida, not as her husband, but as an artist.

1:48:091:48:16

I admire her.

1:48:161:48:18

Her work is acid, and tender.

1:48:181:48:21

Hard as steel, fine as a butterfly's wing.

1:48:231:48:28

Lovable as a smile.

1:48:291:48:31

Cruel as...the bitterness of life.

1:48:331:48:37

I don't believe...

1:48:441:48:46

..that ever before has a woman put such agonised poetry on canvas.

1:48:471:48:52

Shut up, panzon!

1:48:521:48:54

Who died?

1:48:541:48:56

Ay, Doctor, if you let me have this tequila,

1:49:171:49:20

I promise not to drink at my funeral.

# So lost without you

1:53:221:53:24

Biopic of the bold and controversial life of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, whose forward-thinking artistic, political and sexual attitudes made her a cult figure.

Salma Hayek's Oscar-nominated performance traces the artist's lifelong, tempestuous relationship with her mentor Diego Rivera, along with her illicit affairs with Trotsky and various women.
