Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter… and Spring (2003) – Review

In a nutshell – A Buddhist Fable portrayed beautifully with perfect simplicity.

A movie can be fueled by violence, crime, thrill, or mystery for the audience to get moved by it. But this movie has done it with pure simplicity.

The drama is about an old Buddhist monk and a boy living in a temple that floats on a placid lake. We witness the life of that boy through different seasons, Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter… and Spring, as he learns to be a monk. This movie is rewarding for Buddhists yet it fits for every one. Very little dialogues, protagonist is not explaining things, all we have to do is attain a harmony with this movie and flesh out the messages.

And it happens because the movie has been pictured in such a way. Every frame of this movie is mesmerizing. Excellently envisaged by the director, Ki-Duk Kim, for the location and the set of the floating temple. A want to live in such kind of a place will develop.

Life in terms of time and change.
An Enchanting movie !!!
