Honeycomb (Spanish: La madriguera) is a 1969 Spanish drama film directed by Carlos Saura. The film stars Geraldine Chaplin and Per Oscarsson as a complicated married couple. It was entered into the 19th Berlin International Film Festival.
Shortly after Teresa (Chaplin) sets fire to her husband's hair, the antagonized and reserved businessman agrees to participate in his pretty young wife's personality games. Teresa soon fills their contemporary home with family heirlooms she retrieved from the basement, and a sense of isolation takes over the house as the couple lock the doors and draw the shades away from the prying eyes of neighbours. However, all too soon these games reach a feverish intensity and fantasy soon blurs into reality.
