El espíritu de la colmena by Víctor Erice( Visual )

57 editions published between 1973 and 2014 in Spanish and No Linguistic content and held by 1,107 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

When a shipyard closes in a Spanish port city, a group of middle-aged men is left spending the days moping. After all, they don't have to worry about what day it is.

They are joined by Amador, a pitiful alcoholic who won't go home, and more occasionally Reina, now a security guard for the local soccer club. A sense of doom hangs over the city, and only a gallows humor brings these unfortunates any feelings of hope. They are still struggling economically and psychologically with the blow they've been dealt, unable to express the sadness of their shame at being without work, and clinging to the hope that someday, something good will happen
