El espíritu de la colmena The spirit of the beehive by Víctor Erice ( Visual )
18 editions published between 1973 and 2012 in Spanish and held by 784 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

This hauntingly atmospheric mood piece is set in rural Spain soon after the Civil War. In the oppressive postwar atmosphere there is an unbridgeable gulf between the parents and children of the household. The parents have retreated into private worlds - beekeeping and an obsession with a 'lost' child. After seeing James Whale's Frankenstein at a travelling film show the children conjure the monster up as a playmate. In the mind of the imaginative and impressionable Ana the figure of a fugitive soldier fuses with the figure of the monster

Espagne, 1940, peu après la fin de la guerre civile. Un cinéma itinérant projette Frankenstein dans un petit village perdu du plateau castillan. 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... Dans l'histoire du cinéma, "L'Esprit de la ruche", réalisé par le cinéaste espagnol contemporain Víctor Erice, est un des films les plus importants sur l'enfance - les enfants et le cinéma, leur rapport à la réalité, leur regard sur le monde des adultes

Un invierno en Mallorca ( Visual )
2 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in Spanish and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The cigar-smoking French writer, George Sand (Lucia Bose) and her lover, the composer-pianist Chopin (Christopher Sandford) have rented a former monastery in Mallorca as a winter retreat. They have even shipped a piano to the site, so that Chopin can continue his work. However, what promised to be a warm, sunny vacation turns sour as the locals disapprove of Sand, the servants are surly and mysterious, and the monastery is cold. She has her revenge, however. She wrote the book A Winter in Mallorca about her miserable winter retreat. This film follows that book closely, with concern for historical accuracy, which did not increase the Spanish filmmakers' popularity with their countrymen."--All Movie website
