In rural Spain after the Civil War, the people's apathy is thrown into contrast with the frenzied activity of bees. Meanwhile, a young girl is alone in dreaming of liberation, through the gentle giant figure of Frankenstein, who she identifies with a young but doomed soldier. Moody and haunting, Erice's debut is a calmly moving masterpiece.
