Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter ...And SpringDirector: Kim Ki-duk, Oh Yeong-su, Kim Yeong-min, Seo Jae-gyeong
A haunting and transcendent meditation on life and the passing of time, director Kim Ki-Duk's Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter...and Spring arrives on DVD in beautiful, albeit bare-bones, form from Columbia/TriStar Home Entertainment. The image is presented in 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen and sports lush colors with even skin tones and little evidence of digital artifacting or edge enhancement. Audio is offered in Korean Dolby Digital 5.1 with sparse dialogue accompanied by bold, easy-to-read yellow subtitles. Though there are no extra features aside from a handful of previews, the visual presentation on this release is exceptional, making it a notable addition to the collection of any avid foreign-film fan.

This is a wonderful movie, A beautiful landscape
spring, ... this film combines the subtle religion of buddhism with the realism of life for us all. with firm upbringings in christianity, this film affected me in ways that american movies could never. it solely and basically breaks down four senarios within the boundaries of everyday human beings. this script implores its viewers to not evaluate, but indulge themselves in each individual story. at the same time, one cannot help but involve and assume the role of each character's innocence and sins. if religion was left at the door of every tinsletown cinema in america, this country might benefit from this non-violent approach to one's spiritual enlightenment as well as the simplicity of life's treasures. cinematography speaks cleanly and clearly in this georgeous background. take your time with this film. if that includes sipping sake or wine with a fine dinner, indulge yourself in a dark room with no distractions. this sobering film to a high paced society will calm your frustrations and curb your anxiety.
If you're into American/MTV/ADHD-type movies, you definitely won't be into this film. I usually can't sit through movies that I find slow and boring, but I didn't have that problem with this film at all. I thought it was quite interesting and engaging. I recommend watching it yourself to decide your own opinion, especially if you're interested in Asian culture and cinema.
If you get over-excited watching paint dry then this movie may be your type of thing. The cinematography is quite nice, if you can keep your eyes open long enough to appreciate it. My advice: find a better way to waste two hours of your time.
AN EXTREMELY WELL DONE MOVIE, ACTING, STORIES, SCENERY. I WANT TO WATCH IT OVER AND OVER AGAIN. DIFFERENT MESSAGES FOR EACH VIEWER AND THEY ALL GO HOME WITH VARIOUS THOUGHTS ABOUT WHAT THIS FILM HAS MEANT.
