A floating hermitage on a mountain lake is the setting for the subtle Zen fable Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter...and Spring (2003). The story is conveyed with little dialogue, relying on beautiful visuals to tell the tale. Stillness and silence are not normally the stuff of modern cinema, but they speak volumes here. Though simple in format, there is great depth which is thoughtfully plumbed by the director and his actors. The result is a unique experience for the viewer, one of pleasure, profundity, and possibly enlightenment.
