EL SUR, is the second movie of Victor Erice, whose first film, The Spirit of the Beehive, was one of the critical hits of 1976. Like Beehive, this film is a somber recollection of childhood, seen mostly through the eyes of a young girl growing up in the aftermath of the Spanish Civil War. The time is the 1950's and the place a small town in the north of Spain. This is a film of estrangement and exile, and geography is just one of many symbols the director uses to tell his story.
