The Beekeeper (1986)

Marcello Mastroianni
Disenchanted with life, stone-faced Spiros, a retired small-town schoolteacher and active beekeeper, finds himself faced with the challenging mission of self-discovery after his daughter's wedding. In search of spring and a temperate climate for his precious bees, Spiros leaves everything behind and embarks on a solitary annual journey to follow the path of the blooming springtime flowers: a tradition passed down from generation to generation. As morose Spiros meanders through the Greek countryside, a chance encounter with a free-spirited, happy-go-lucky female drifter gradually brings to light buried emotions and overpowering feelings. But pretty soon, palpable silence turns into unspoken tension, and bittersweet nostalgia evolves into self-destructive obsession.—Nick Riganas
