El espíritu de la colmena

Trailer

Synopsis

It’s 1940, two girls go to the village movie theater to see James Whale’s Frankenstein. That’s the start of this allegory revolving around Franco’s regime and the end of the Civil War. The Spirit of the Beehive was Erice’s debut, and it would be another decade before he made his second film. Through the eyes of a young Ana Torrent, Erice captured the mystery of cinema, made one of the most beautiful films about the look and positioned himself in the heart of lyrical, film lover’s fantasy.
