And she is the flame

That rises up

And she is a bird in flight

In the night

that catches fire

Hell is this heaven

Persian Gulf

Up! Up, up, up up!

Careful, guys.

This corpse is still breathing.

Try to get me there

in one piece.

Hello, Professor.

Hello, Frida.

Diego Rivera is back

in the auditorium!

- Who cares?

- With a naked woman.

Oh, yeah. Yeah.


Why is this whore still here?


Tell me.

Tell me, mi amor.

Are you planning to have her

after lunch,

or have you fucked her


Lupe, please don't start.

Y-You think I don't know

what's going on.

You must think I'm an idiot.

- I can't work like this.

- Yes, you can.

Your food and your slut.

That's all you need to paint

your pinche murals!

Hey! Get out!

And don't come home!

Don't come home and give me

one of your speeches

about the artist and the people

and your fucking revolution!

You only care about yourself,

you piece of shit!

So much for lunch.


I could eat you, perhaps.

I-I've eaten female flesh

before. Yeah.


Wrapped up in... tortillas.

Tastes like...

the tenderest young pig.

Watch out, Diego!

Lupe's coming back!

Fucking punks!

Come on,

you little anarchists!

Let's go! Frida!

Just keeping you honest,



Do I look fat to you?



Shh, shh, shh, shh!

Oh, yeah.

- Here you are.

- Gracias.

Frida, we found

the most beautiful fabric

for my wedding dress today.


It cost a fortune.

- Mama?

- Yes?

Are these ripe?

They should be.

Let me see.

Yes, they're fine.

Just need a day or two.

Maybe you'll get married,

too, one day.

One can only hope.

Lunch is almost ready.

Go get the artist.

I love this one.

It's beautiful.

I like it, too.

They're busy with the wedding.

Cristina is so excited

about her dress.


Everyone should be excited

when they get married.

I suppose.

If that's what you want.

And, uh... what do you want?

I don't know.

I just don't think

that marriage is for everyone.

Well, you need

a good reason to do it,

just like with anything else.

What do you think matters most

for a good marriage?

A short memory.

Why did you get married,


I can't remember.

So I could have you.

And concentrate, everybody.

Wait. Where is Frida?

Adriana, go tell your sister

to hurry up.

I always wanted a son.

And, Matilde, everyone,

eyes to the camera,


Come on.

We'll miss our bus.

- Frida!

- Excuse me.

How much is the calaca?

Frida, come on!

- The bus!

- We'll take the next one.

No, no, no!

Come, come, come!

W-Watch out. Hey! Hey.

Anyway, I just don't think

he's completely apolitical.

That's all.

But that's because you read it

after you read Marx.

You... you always read things

in the wrong order!

That's ridiculous.

Why should it matter

what order you read it in?

Because if you have

already read Marx,

then of course Hegel is

going to seem political.

But the truth is the idea

of history as a dialectic.

It just predicts Marx...

Is that gold? Real gold?

For the ceiling

of the opera house.


Move it, idiot!

Your brake!

The spinal column was broken,

as were the collarbone

and two ribs.

The pelvis is broken

in three places.

The metal rod entered

the right side of the body

and came out the vagina.

The right leg has

And the foot was crushed.

Will she ever walk again?

Let's make sure

she lives first.

Is Alex alive?

- Frida.

- Is he all right?

He was hurt, but not terribly.

He was here yesterday

when you were not awake.

And Mama?

It was too much for them,

Fridocha. They are at home.
