Spirit of the Beehive, The (1973) - Details

"Erice's remarkable one-off sees rural spain soon after franco's victory as a wasteland of inactivity. The single, fragile spark of 'liberation' exists in the mind of little ana, who dreams of meeting the gentle monster from james whale's frankenstein, and befriends a fugitive soldier. A haunting mood-piece that dispenses with plot and works its spells through intricate patterns of sound and image." (Time Out)
