El espíritu de la colmena( Visual )

5 editions published between 1973 and 2006 in Spanish and English and held by 648 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Only dimly aware of the shadow of World War II somewhere beyond the Castilian plateau, sisters Isabel and Ana must occupy themselves as their preoccupied scientist father and isolated, languishing mother move in their solitary orbits. After attending the screening of James Whale's "Frankenstein" at a makeshift movie theater in town, Ana becomes obsessed with the idea of befriending the imaginary monster. Largely wordless, the film functions as a striking trompe l'oeil about childhood imagination versus the wider perspective of the adult world

El sol del membrillo by Víctor Erice( Visual )

36 editions published between 1992 and 2004 in 4 languages and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The artist, Antonio Lopez, tries to paint the quince tree he planted some time back in his garden. Throughout his life, he has worked on the same theme many times, almost as if it were a physical necessity. Every year, with the arrival of autumn, this need resurfaces. The artist's work has never represented the sun's rays between the leaves of the tree, and, given his characteristic realist style, he tries to achieve this. But he goes about it in the same way, without consciously pursuing a finished picture - he just wants to be close to the fragile lavish tree for a few weeks". IMDB

We can't go home again by Nicholas Ray( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We can't go home again: A complete restoration of legendary director Nicholas Ray's 1973 experimental masterpiece, made with his college students in upstate New York. It embodies Ray's approach to filmmaking as a communal way of life. The film records Ray's groundbreaking use of multiple image as a way of telling more than one story simultaneously, and of colorization as a way to heighten emotional expression. He called it a 'journalistic' film, one that shares the anthropologists' aim of recording the "history, progress, manners, morals, and mores of everyday life," at a critical moment in American history. Ray plays himself in the film, serving as mentor, friend, and reference point around whom the students' stories constellate

"Espagne, 1940, peu après la fin de la guerre civile. Un cinéma itinérant projette Frankenstein dans un petit village perdu de Castille. Les enfants sont fascinés par le monstre et, parmi eux, la petite Ana, 8 ans, se pose mille et une questions sur ce personnage terrifiant. Sa grande soeur, Isabel, a beau lui expliquer que ce n'est qu'un "truc" de cinéma, elle prétend pourtant avoir rencontré l'esprit de Frankenstein rôdant non loin du village. Les filles partagent leur solitude dans une grande maison obscure. Leurs parents sont rarement présents, pris chacun dans des rituels adultes incompréhensibles : le père, insomniaque, passe ses journées à étudier les abeilles, arrangeant la maison familiale comme si c'était une ruche ; la mère, quant à elle, s'est réfugiée dans une nostalgie stérile, rédigeant des lettres à un prétendu amant qui demeure invisible et silencieux. Pour fuir ce monde mort, Ana et Isabel s'inventent un univers parallèle."

Néanmoins, le peintre pousse sa réflexion et tente, pour la première fois, de représenter également la lumière du soleil. Au fil des jours, le tableau prend forme, mais la pluie automnale redouble de vigueur et le cognassier commence à flétrir irrémédiablement ..." (Jacquette)
