El espíritu de la colmena( Visual )

5 editions published between 1988 and 2006 in Spanish and held by 649 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

Clara is a factory worker whose life has become exceedingly grim. She, her two children, and her husband are living with his family, while he is laid up (and off from his job) with a broken leg. Her brother-in-law is a lay-about; her peevish mother-in-law worships her sons and exploits Clara, the only working adult in the household. One day she passes out on the factory floor, and the National Health Service diagnosis of tuberculosis is justification for sending her to a sanatorium in the mountains. There she meets a young man, and falls desperately in love. If, as Appollinaire said, "Sickness is the vacation of the poor," what will happen when Clara is well?
