Widely regarded as one of the greatest Spanish films of all time and celebrating its 50th anniversary, THE SPIRIT OF THE BEEHIVE is Víctor Erice’s spectacular look at monsters, real and imagined, as seen through the wide-eyed wonder of a child (the arresting Ana Torrent) captivated by the sight of FRANKENSTEIN at a traveling movie show in the wake of the Spanish Civil War.
