L’ESPRIT DE LA RUCHE
by Victor Erice (El Spiritu de la colmena, Spain, 1972, 1h35)
starring Fernando Fernan Gomez, Ana Torrent, Teresa Gimpera
Spain, 1940. Two little girls are traumatised by the vision of Frankenstein in James Whale's film. The older girl leads her sister to believe that she can summon the monster at will. Which one day appears to come true... Erice deals with the imaginary world of children with decency and sensitivity. A very great success in Spanish cinema in the 1970s.
