Editor's note: Because she does not sew, cook or dance like a "proper senorita," Frida can't please her mother until she saves the day at the fiesta with her unique talent.Frida sat down in the patio and did not even notice her sisters' kisses as they left. All she could think of was Mama and Fiesta. She could not sew, she could not cook, she could not dance. Mama didn't like anything she did. And Mama did not want her to ride Diablo. Frida tried to take a deep breath, but all she could feel was hot, dry Santa Ana wind sticking to her throat.

Frida, the film biography of Mexican painter Frida Kahlo, is hopelessly at odds with itself and not in very fascinating ways. At its infrequent best, the movie reflects the artist's lacerating self-portraits. We see the actors literally forming the basis of her paintings or stepping out of them; splashes of collage or puppetry bridge gaps in the action and reflect her surreal temperament. In these flurries of invention, dramatic life imitates a graphic art that has already imitated real life.

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- It didn't occur to director Julie Taymor at first, all the ways in which her life is similar to that of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo's. "No," she says, shaking her head. "I didn't think about those things when I was making this film." There were so many other technical and aesthetic problems to think about instead, such as how to rescue Kahlo from the feminist view of her as a victim overshadowed by a powerful older man ("Of course she suffered, but she also had a lusty life," Taymor says.

A friend and I want to visit Mexico, especially Frida Kahlo sites. Any recommendations? Although it's possible to create a Frida Kahlo itinerary on your own, we found a small travel agency in Castroville, Texas, that visits sites related to Kahlo and her husband, Diego Rivera, as part of a seven-day trip to Cuernavaca in November. Tierra del Sol (mexicoprograms.com), an agency owned by former college professor Ward Albro, offers "A Day with Diego and Frida," with visits to the Frida Kahlo Museum in the Mexico City suburb of Coyoacan, the Diego Rivera Studio and Museum in San Angel and the Dolores Olmedo Museum in the Xochimilco district.

THE LIFE AND TIMES OF FRIDA KAHLO / / PBS Home Video / Daylight Films / $24.95 Frida Kahlo was the first Mexican modern artist to have her work hung in the Louvre, but the price she paid for her achievement was one of crushing emotional torment and lifelong physical pain. She was a vibrant 19-year-old university student in 1926 when a trolley car accident left her body crippled for life; she began painting during her convalescence as a way of passing time. A few years later she fell in love with the great Mexican muralist Diego Rivera, 21 years her senior; the two married and embarked on a passionate, tempestuous relationship that would last until Kahlo's death in 1954 at the age of 47. Until the end, despite countless well-publicized infidelities on both their parts, Rivera remained the one great love of Kahlo's life.
