Just Like Honey
There are a few interesting facts you should know about Victor Erice's The Spirit of the Beehive ---for example, that Luis Cuadrado's cinematography can only be described as nothing short of amazing, despite the fact that Cuadrado was going blind during filming. And that of the 1000 total shots in the film, exactly 500 are shot inside and 500 are shot outside.
The Spirit of the Beehive is also #1 on James Franco's Criterion Top 10 list. And really, if anyone should dictate your viewing selections, it's Daniel Desario.
