El espíritu de la colmena (1973)
Erice, Víctor
Childhood drama set in post-war Spain.
In 1940 a mobile cinema brings James Whale's 'Frankenstein' to a small Castillian village. Ana, a young girl, is intrigued by the film, especially after her sister tells her that Frankenstein's monster (or 'spirit') really exists and lives in a nearby barn. When Ana goes there, she meets a wounded fugitive whom she equates with the monster and befriends. (Cert. PG)
