1.0 out of 5 stars Pretty - but pretty awful, 22 Aug 2006
This review is from: Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter... and Spring [DVD] [2004] (DVD)
I got this film on the basis of all the wonderful reviews here and on other film sites. I have to admit that the filming was beautiful - but I nearly went crazy over the number of times we saw someone rowing that bloody boat! It was all so slow and without a story-line. We stuck with it hoping that it would get better but it descended into weird singing which didn't improve even when put on fast forward.

Give it a miss, unless you're very spiritual and are the type of person who likes to watch paint dry (beautiful paint of course).

Oh why don't you just go and watch strictly come dancing then.

I think you may have missed the point of the film. Stillness leads to moral contemplation and reflection upon ones' actions in life. This film runs in line with this meditation and it would be entirely inappropriate for the film to fast paced. As Gandhi once said "There is more to life than increasing its speed". This film needs no words yet speaks volumes.

A Reader says:
I think you must have watched a different film to me. Although we know something is seriously amiss when our Hollywood crud we are now fed on does not have at least one car chase, several shoot-outs and other ritalin-inducing inanity, so your review is hardly surprising. May I suggest for you a bit of high-brow Fast & Furious 1-4 Box Set [DVD] .

That last comment sums up the 1960s Beatles like fanaticism of many awful modern films to a tee.

"I think you must have watched a different film to me"

Look, no, it was the person who was different. The film can't have been different, can it? It musn't have been a different film.

It's incredibe how subtle these fans are at declaring they have the only possilble perspective. I've read countless such phrases and turns of conversation from this type of fan. These are fanaticsts at anything - like the Beatles fans in the 60s who like to scream, but with extreme self love or self loss (or both) in love at anything they decide. And they seem to be in the vast, vast majority in these times. They can be very fascist in these times, also.

:( perhaps (I mean, 'oh dear, aw'). But wisdom says that only :l is appropriate: what is is never any other way, and shouldn't be compared to one's idealised nursery rhymes. That's pointless and meaningless.

[Replying to the comment by "The Way is Simple".]

In the end I thought that was far to dire as expressed in the film to be the point of the film. So I say to you "The Way is Simple" that you, in fact, ought to consider if you have missed the point of this film. What I thought the film was might shock you, but I invite you read my review anyway.
