El espíritu de la colmena = The spirit of the beehive by Víctor Erice( Visual )

56 editions published between 1973 and 2014 in Spanish and No Linguistic content and held by 1,111 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 d'loeil about childhood imagination versus the wider perspective of the adult world
