April 17th, 2017

"She demands an emotional connection to her subject and sometimes succeeds...Frida’s soul is elusive for Dantas, a writer and performer who’s looking for the artist’s personality in all the wrong places. Dantas appears a capable actor; she communicates outrage and joy effortlessly as her character experiences a wide range of victories and failures...Frida doesn’t evolve into a strong figure who perseveres rather than enduring her physical and emotional travails...It’s a missed opportunity."

"With the help of videos cast on the walls of her childhood home...we can picture Kahlo in Mexico and New York City...But it is mostly Dantas’ skill as an actor that makes Kahlo come to life...Dantas knows how to make movement count as much as voice. Her portrayal of Kahlo is deeply physical as well as emotional. Despite its title, 'Fragmented Frida' gives us an extremely coherent image of a very complicated woman."
