    This movie well displayed an existence of inner demon in children, I Barsoom Akhmen the third believe that this movie could've been better without the constant feeling of watching paint dry, The only part of the movie i found interesting was the credits, Challenge my opinion but i did not enjoy this movie one bit, If i had a time machine id go back to when i rented the movie on netflix and delete it from my instant queu. That's all i can say for now. Expand

    The extraordinary child actress Ana Torrent (Cria) made her debut here at the age of five. Much in the film is derivative, but Erice excels in precise evocations of childhood feelings.
  2. The Spirit of the Beehive, like "Cinema Paradiso," also takes place at the particular intersection of reality and fantasy defined by youthful moviegoing.
  3. Beehive is a graceful and potent lyric on children's vulnerable hunger, but it's also a sublime study on cinema's poetic capacity to reflect and hypercharge reality.
