Spanish Language Films
Hello, my name is Bella, and I'm sort of a novice to Spanish cinema - nevertheless, I love it. I've only seen a few Spanish films (most notably, Pan's Labyrinth and Y Tu Mamá También), but I am eager to see more, especially The Spirit of the Beehive, if I ever find it. Anyway, the reason I'm here is because I need your help. My grandparents are really into foreign films, and one of their favorites is a Spanish one, but the can't remember the name of it, when it was made, or any of the actors in it. Basically, all they remember is the plot, |
From what they told me, the movie focuses on an out-of-work man who goes to work on this ranch and ends up taking care of the rancher's wife's child, because she is completely over-worked and needs all the help she can get, since her husband is sort of a ne'er-do-well. Soon after the guy starts working there, the wife kills herself, and this guy, knowing that the husband is a terrible father, takes the baby with him to the city. The guy's desperate for work again, and I guess he finds work with these teenage hoodlums (?), who want him to help them rob a store without him realizing it. During the robbery, he gets killed, and the baby is left with this gang, despite all his good intentions.
I know I probably butchered the plot, but if any of you can help me with the name of this movie or maybe where I can find it, that would be wonderful!
