Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter..and Spring [2003] | K-MOVIE

on October 5, 2013

Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter… and Spring is a 2003 South Korean film about a Buddhist monastery that floats on a lake in a pristine forest. The story is about the life of a Buddhist monk as he passes through the seasons of his life, from childhood to old age.

The movie was directed by Kim Ki-duk, and stars Su Oh-yeongKim Young-minSeo Jae-kyung, and Kim Jong-ho. The director himself appears as the man in the last stage of life. The quiet, contemplative film marked a significant change from his previous works, which were often criticized for excessive violence and misogyny.

The film was released in the United States in 2004 by Sony Pictures Classics, in subtitle format.



The film is divided into five segments (the five seasons of the title), each segment depicting a different stage in the life of a novice Buddhist monk and his old teacher. The segments are roughly ten to twenty years apart, and the action of each takes place during the season of its title. The story unfolds rather simply, but the implications of the characters’ actions are silently commented upon by the presence of various Buddhist symbols and iconography.
