Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter... and Spring

The next film discussion, Wednesday December 6, will be devoted to Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter... and Spring (South Korea, 2003). Set in a Buddhist monastery on a beautiful lake island within a pristine forest, the story follows a Buddhist monk as he passes through the seasons of his life, from childhood to old age.

Directed by Kim Ki-duk, and starring Su Oh-yeong, Kim Young-min, Seo Jae-kyung, Kim Jong-ho. Like a similiar motif explored by Japanese director Akira Kurosawa in his Dreams, the director himself appears as the man in the last stage of life.
