El espíritu de la colmena( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in Spanish and held by 637 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

The spirit of the beehive by Víctor Erice( Visual )

4 editions published between 1973 and 2007 in Spanish and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Spagna, 1940, poco dopo la fine della guerra civile. Un cinematografo itinerante organizza la proiezione del Frankenstein di James Whale in un piccolo villaggio sperso nell'altipiano castigliano. I bambini sono affascinati dal mostro, in modo particolare la piccola Ana, otto anni, che rimane particolarmente impressionata dalla scena in cui Frankenstein incontra una bambina sua coetanea e la uccide e da quella dove viene a sua volta ammazzato. Anche se sua sorella maggiore, Isabel, cerca di spiegarle che si tratta di finzione, Ana si convince che lo spirito del mostro si aggira nel villaggio e teme di poterlo incontrare prima o poi. La spiccata fantasia della bambina è dettata dalle condizioni in cui vive: lei e Isabel infatti dimorano in una grande e spoglia abitazione, pressoché ignorate dai loro genitori, raramente presenti, ed occupati in rituali ai loro occhi incomprensibili: il padre, insonne, trascorre le giornate a studiare le api, arrangiando la casa come se fosse un alveare; la madre, viceversa, si è rifugiata in una sterile nostalgia, redigendo lettere rivolte ad un ipotetico amante. Per questo, le bambine, per scappare da una realtà disarmante e desolata, si inventano un universo parallelo, abitato da figure immaginarie e ideale luogo per inventarsi storie stravaganti. A incentivare l'immaginazione creativa delle due bambine contribuisce anche il paesaggio naturale in cui abitano, immenso, soleggiato, deserto, ed un vecchio casolare abbandonato, misterioso e affascinante, che scoprono e frequentano spesso. Un giorno, in quello stesso casolare, si installa un soldato socialista in fuga, alla ricerca di un riparo sicuro nella campagna dopo la vittoria ormai acclarata del generale Franco. Agli occhi di Ana, il suo arrivo sembra la conferma che lo spirito di Frankenstein è in mezzo a loro
