This review is from: Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter... and Spring [DVD]  (DVD)
For me, a measure of good art is how much it stays with me long after the experience. This film will stay with me for ever. To call it a film, to call it a story, would be to undersell it; it is a pure message, an allegory.
The scenery is sheer beauty and characters are so natural it's as if they are not acting at all. But the real messages of the story are layered in as many ways as you care to look for them. Yet, while you swim in the depths of its meaning, you'll smile at the ineptness of youth, the benign cunning of an old man, and even a cat tail paint brush!
