la colmena

“La Colmena” is a sad composition with the stories of many people in the Madrid of 1942, just the postwar of the spanish civil war. The main theme of the film is the contrast between the poets, surviving close to misery under the Franco’s regime, and the winners of the war, the emerging class of the people that makes easy money with illegal business.

SYNOPSIS
After the death of her second husband, Bernarda Alba, a dominating woman, imposes a period of mourning on her household to last all of eight years! This has, apparently, been tradition in her family. Bernarda exerts an almost fanatically protective will over her daughters. She is preoccupied with ideas of honour and custom, in particular relating to the role of women in society, and is too proud to see the truth about her own five daughters aged between 21 and 40, whom she has shielded and controlled to an excessive degree and prohibited from any form of contact or relationship with all things male! The mourning period further isolates the daughters from the world around them, and tension mounts within the household.
Passion, anger, sibling rivalry and extreme jealousy haunts the characters in The House of Bernarda Alba…
