5.0 out of 5 stars Unique and memorable., 25 April 2013
This review is from: Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter... and Spring [DVD] [2003] (DVD)
I often use the words, `there is no film quite like this', or describe a film as `unique'. This might occasionally be considered an exaggeration, but in the case of this film, it is 100% accurate. This 2003 film from Korea, is five small films in one, that all fit together perfectly. It is hard to explain the story, without giving away the eventual outcome, or making it sound really dull. You will have to place a lot of trust in me, to even bother to watch it, and I really do feel that this trust will be rewarded.

Set on a floating monastery, in the middle of a lake, the scenery and photography is simply a delight to behold. A young man arrives at this lonely place, to learn at the feet of an elderly Buddhist monk. We watch as he develops into manhood, through the seasons of the title, that mark the times of his life. He leaves, tries to live in the World, fails, and returns to begin again. Rich in metaphors, superbly acted, with an overwhelming sense of peace; it is out on its own.
