The Spirit of the Beehive (1973)


Recommended Posts

Intriguing and haunting movie : The Spirit of the Beehive (1973).  I'm quite glad I watched this fine Spanish film today on TCM that I had never heard of before let alone seen.  Tremendous acting jobs by the two young girls playing sisters.  As good of child acting performances as I have witnessed in a movie.  Quite haunting look at their 1940 childhood in rural post Civil War Spain after a traveling cinema shows 1931's Frankenstein to the mesmerized audience who seldom see any kind of movie.  A movie about childhood and the power of imagination all unknown to the emotionally distant parents (from the little girls and each other).  A movie I would like to see again to capture all the nuances I am sure I missed with the first viewing.
