Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter… And Spring
Today i woke up and wanted to see this movie again. Maybe something happened in my dreams, maybe in paralell universe (read Neil Turok yesterday). Don’t know. Just had a feeling that i got to do it. To feel the cycles of life, cyles of Universe. As Turok proposed, there is not one single start of Universe or Big Bang…it’s cyclic. It’s born and reborn.
[NEIL TUROK:] For the last ten years I have mainly been working on the question of how the universe began — or didn’t begin. What happened at the Big Bang? To me this seems like one of the most fundamental questions in science, because everything we know of emerged from the Big Bang. Whether it’s particles or planets or stars or, ultimately, even life itself.

The film can be described as a simple Buddhist fable: simple but multi layers. All the elements play their own symbolic roles; the snake, the fish, the cat and the frog (all living creatures). The issue of reincarnation is central.
The film narrates a personal journey from unawareness and childhood to awakening and maturity. Through the seasons, we are witnessing the flowing nature of life in its pure manifestation: birth,pain,love,despair,death and rebirth.
The dialog are concise.They are short but quite sufficient (Buddhism wisdom does not require a lot of words). The brilliant photography adds the beauty. Casts are in deep connection with the context. I’m interested to know Kim is a director or a monk itself?
