This review is from: Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter... and Spring [DVD]  (DVD)
Stunning in its simplicity, the film portrays the life of a young boy and his teacher, a buddhist monk. As the title suggests, the film conveys the cycles of life and that everything returning to its starting point. Portrayed according to the seasons, new life, beginnings and endings in a constant cycle, starting with the boy as a youngster being taught by his wise master. He goes astray seeking life in the secular world and walks his own path which is disastrous. The boy ends up returning as a man to where he started but seeming to have finally understood what his master was teaching. The cast is small, filmed in one location with minimal dialogue and yet speaking volumes.
