Spirit of the Beehive

March 21, 2013

Masterpiece of Spanish cinema. In a remote 1940s village a child is deeply affected by watching a screening of Frankenstein. When she finds a wounded man in a barn her imagination spirals out of control. At once a lyrical story and an allegory of the Franco regime. Features the best child performance in film. ¥The finest and most beautifully wrought first film.’ Village Voice. 7 major wins.
