    "Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter... and Spring" is a movie about life, a movie about growing and learning, a movie about love and hate, and a movie about change and invariability. It's a spiritual movie, not a religious one.

    Another slow and long-winded movie. The only praise is the scenes. From start to finish there are short pieces of dialogue, a minimal amount of actual movement and characters that were very dull indeed. However, if you are a fan of artistic movies then it is worth watching.

    Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter... and Spring takes you to a Quite Peaceful place if you allow it to. I liked everything about it. It`s not just like any other movie.

  1. Kim Ki-duk keeps dialogue to a minimum and actions simple in what is virtually a two-character piece. Humor arrives organically, often resulting in hearty laughs.

    A sublime, witty, gritty and transcendental movie reflecting one man's life journey.
  3. An exquisitely simple movie. Mr. Kim manages to isolate something essential about human nature and at the same time, even more astonishingly, to comprehend the scope of human experience.
