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

by Raj
(United Kingdom)

A movie that tugged at my heartstrings and made me see more to it than was possibly intended was a 2003 South Korean film called Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter ... and Spring. Telling you the story of an apprentice at a monastery, the movie takes you through the different seasons of the year, relating each season to the different stages of the monk’s life. Through this seasonal depiction, which is not only poignant but also breathtakingly beautiful, I was struck by the way different emotions of the young monk were interwoven into the narration.


What I took away from this movie was the importance of meditation. You could get swayed by emotions, like anger, jealousy and desire, but only you can find your way back to that balanced centre which is at the core of your being. In the movie, this “returning to the self” is shown by the monk returning to the floating boat which is his sanctuary. Another thing I took away from this movie was that all the emotions that cause us grief and sorrow are almost always of our own making. This was one among many lessons in Buddhist mysticism and spirituality that a viewer can take away from this film. All in all, a highly contemplative movie and I would encourage everyone out there to watch it.
