About Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter... and Spring
Best known for picking controversial topics into his films, director Kim Gi Deok is the first South Korean director awarded Best Director at the 54th Berlin Film Festival in February 2004. His new work "Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter... and Spring" traces the life of a Buddhist monk to draw an analogy between the changing of the seasons and the cycle of life.
The film tells a tale about the life of a Buddhist monk from being a child monk to an aging monk. As he grows, he experiences the desires and emotions in his childhood, adolescence and adulthood. He kills a little animation out of innocence, falls for a girl, attempts suicide after committing murder and eventually becomes an old monk. Paralleled to the nature's cycle of four seasons, the development of his life is adopted to reflect men's general patterns in life.

Shot at a floating temple on a lake in Mt. Chuwang National Park, Kim Gi Deok's latest film "Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter... and Spring" features the director's debut as an actor casting an old monk in the winter scene of the film. Kim's previous eight works including "The Isle", "Address Unknown", and "Bad Guy" often deal with contentious topics that arouse viewers' contemplation.
