Movie Review: Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter... and Spring

I got to confess that I am not a big fan of Korean movies. However, since the DVD rental shop at my place was having a price slash promotion, I rented this Korean movie entitled "Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter... and Spring". To my surprise, I like it much. Eventhough it was a simple story movie, it was good.

A young boy lives in a small floating temple on a beautiful lake, together with an elderly master who teaches him the ways of the Buddha. Years later the boy, now a young man, experiences his sexual awakening with a girl who has come to the temple to be healed by the master. The youth runs away to the outside world but his lust turns his life into hell, so he returns to the lake temple to find spiritual enlightenment.

Check it out if you have the time. A 5-star rating from me.
