In a tranquil and timeless setting of a temple floating atop a man-made lake in a forest, surrounded by mountain spires that cut the monastery off from worldly concerns, an old monk teaches his young disciple the wisdom of Buddha over the many seasons of their lives.

A pastoral poem about the changing seasons and a meditation on the cycle of life, 'Spring, Summer, Autumn Winter...And Spring' marks a definite change of pace for director Kim Ki-duk. Much of the movie is steeped in Buddhist mysticism with each of the five episodes featuring a different animal: a dog, a rooster, a cat, a snake and finally a turtle. For each season, Kim Ki-duk observes the change of weather and the relationship of man with nature.

Winner of four awards at the Locarno Interntation Film Festival.

 A Beautifully Simple Fable

| | See all fletch's reviews (4)

This is one of my Top 5 films of all time!

There are so many good things to say about `Bom yeoreum gaeul gyeoul geurigo bom' (to give it its native title). It is a beautiful story of life going full circle (birth to death and back again) with all the emotions experienced throughout - I get the sense this particular story has been told many times before and we are seeing but one section of a timeline that goes on and on.

There are many lessons in life experienced through the film, all with a spiritual backdrop. The way the old monk assists his pupil to discover the true path of enlightenment is superb - he imparts punishments simply, without ever judging.

The scenery is stunning, the soundtrack perfect for the film and the dialogue is minimal (which is perfect for the mood of the film). The pace of the film is very relaxed - apart from the season changes, time doesn't feel relevant as the years roll by.

Its one of those films which leaves you with a really positive feeling of what life is all about - for a long time after - and makes you more determined to live your life better!

(I love foreign Arthouse films as they place heavy emphasis on cinematography supported by emotional stories, presented in a human way, which make the viewing experience much more than just entertainment - such an antidote to Hollywood films - Truly Art!)

 Such a beautiful masterpiece

This is one of the best films I've ever seen.

It's so beautiful. The setting has a Utopian feel to it, with some excellent cinematography. There isn't a massive amount of dialogue, although the film doesn't move slowly. It's simplistic, yet hugely thought provoking and everything about it leaves you feeling 'alive'.

If you're after something that's deep, thought provoking and a beautiful piece of viewing, then I would recommend this film.

 what a beautiful film

I saw this last night with an introduction by a Buddhist monk, I wasn't sure what it would be like but it was just spellbinding, so different from modern films, so restful and just beautiful
it made me long for a different world as it captured the peace and tranquility of days gone by
I can't wait to watch it again

 Beautiful film!

This film is stunning and for me on a par with Hero for the colourful visuals and stunning cinematography, I love world cinema but wasnt really too sure what to expect from this film but the storyline is rather thought provoking. There are certainly a few lessons that could be learned from this picture, yet after i had finished watching i felt almost humbled by what i had seen. The changing of the seasons within the film a visually stunning however they also convey meaning in terms of pacing the story and helping to explain certain aspects, for example spring being the start of new life. There are certainly also aspects of the old meeting the new and i found this whole film fascinating from start to finish. I would recommend this to most people who want to watch a nicely paced film that is both interesting and thought provoking in its construction, visually it is one of the most beautiful films i have ever seen and the director deserves a lot of praise for creating this beautiful film.
